Back to School Sunday

We invite our school families to attend mass together at St. Eugene this coming Sunday, August 15th, at 9:30am. We would like students to wear their school uniform. This is a great way to start the school year with the support and blessings of our parish community! If your child would like to be an altar server (5th+), or if your family would like to act as greeters, please contact Mrs. Ison.

Carpool: Cell Phones & Car Tags

Cell Phones: It is very important that you stay off your cell phone any time you are driving on the school grounds. Safety comes first! If you have any system in your car that can effect our walkie-talkie system, please make sure it is in the OFF position.

CAR TAGS: Car Tags are essential to keep the process running smoothly. Car Tags are REQUIRED this year in order to pick up students. If you do not display your car tag you may be asked to pull over until the end. While Mrs. Goldsworthy knows nearly every child and is good at matching drivers/cars, it is very difficult to see and it may not always be Mrs. Goldsworthy reading tags. Also, Please display them properly - passenger visor. Rubber bands are a great way to secure them.

Carpool: Approved Pick Up Persons

All parents need to make sure you have your approved list in Renweb. If there is any person that should not be allowed to pick up your child, please make sure that is in Renweb AND contact the child’s teacher and office.

If you have a change in pick up for your child, including going home with a different person, you are required to call in or email Mrs. Patrick by 2:45 in the afternoon. It is a security issue to not have the exact info on how a child is going home. If you are sending your child home with another family and you don’t tell us, we won’t know to call them for the correct car. We gave three car tags this year so you can share with those who are also on your car list. We can also print extra if requested.

Pick Up Ice Chests!

If you brought an ice chest for Friday popsicles, Thank You! Please pick it up from the front of the school this weekend or AFTER drop off on Monday if you haven’t already.

Outstanding Paperwork

Please check with your oldest student's teacher/MS cubby room teacher if your family did not receive a copy of the Parent Compact, Mask Directive, and orange carpool tags (1st-8th) at Meet the Teacher. You should also have received your ClassTag code for EACH of your student's primary classroom. Please download the free app, create an account, and join your classroom(s) ASAP. We will soon begin using ClassTag as our primary school/family communication portal rather than sending both an email AND ClassTag. We recommend choosing Push Notifications or SMS notifications for instant alerts.


Do you have everything you need for uniforms? View the overview of our uniform policy here and check the handbook for more details. All students (K-8) will need regular and dress uniforms.

Don’t forget to Order your uniforms through Flynn O’Hara! Our uniform company gives 5% back to CSSE!

* Note: Flynn O’Hara has been experiencing delays in fulfilling orders, so we are being flexible in regard to dress code while families wait for their orders.
