Nurse News

Please be patient with us as we take temperatures! Sometimes, the heat in your car can give us a false positive. We will ask students who scan high to pull over and someone will come to your car and retake your student's temperature. So, far, that has worked in every case!


Please continue to monitor your children at home and report to us if you are keeping them home. It also helps to send an email to their homeroom or classroom teacher


Beginning November 1st we will start taking temperatures at the door of the school and parish (2 stations). REMINDER--Please start unloading at the SJL statute and DO NOT WAIT until you get up to the front door.

Pink It Out Day

We will honor Breast Cancer survivors and those in treatment with a PINK IT OUT Day on Monday, October 19th. Students may dress casually for $1.00 to be donated to a Catholic based organization involved in breast cancer research and treatment. Students must follow handbook guidelines (check www.stjohnlalandeschool.com) and wear PINK.

NO SCHOOL

There is NO SCHOOL on Friday, October 16th, (teacher's professional development) or on October 22nd (conferences) and October 23rd.

Principal's Honor Roll Luncheon

We will still honor those students who have achieved Principal's Honor Roll by having Backyard Burgers delivered to the school. Students will gather in the Parish Center at noon on Wednesday, October 28th.

Halloween Parties

We will have Halloween Parties on Friday, October 30th. This is a free dress day for the students. No costumes and please follow handbook guidelines. I will ask the teachers to review those with their students closer to the date. All treats must be individually wrapped or from a vendor like PIzza Hut or Dunkin Donuts. (In other words no "homemade" food). Each classroom has a room mom who is responsible for organizing the party although the actual running of the party is up to the teacher. If you need to drop off an item for the party, please park and enter the school and drop the item on the bench outside the office.

Those families who are hosting a trunk should wear masks and gloves as they distribute the individually wrapped candy. There will be "allergy aware" candy. We are asking for a donation of a canned good for those who are "driving by". All are welcome!
