A Note from Mrs. Ryan    
Dear Parents,

We are all looking forward to a well-deserved three day weekend. Our accreditation visit has been going well and our students have enjoyed showing our visitors all of the various ways they are engaged in learning. I greatly appreciate all of the parents who met with the visiting team last night to give their impressions of St. Rose School and our path of continual quality improvement. The Visiting Committee will share highlights of their Report of Findings with us on Thursday afternoon. They will submit their recommended term of accreditation to the WCEA Commissioners. Once the commissioners have completed their meetings in May, we will receive formal notice of our accreditation.

Parking Lot Safety
Safety First depends on your cooperation!
Please remember, and tell all those in your family who drive onto our campus, to please drive safely!

Some important safety reminders:
  1. Be patient. Drive slow. Be kind. Do not impede traffic flow or others.
  2. If your child goes to tutorial, do not get in the pick up line before 3:10 pm. Do not sit in the traffic circle waiting. Circle around back in line to keep traffic flow moving.
  3. DO NOT leave your car unattended in the traffic circle during drop off or pick up. Stay in your car and move as soon as your child gets in or out. If you have office business, please park in a designated parking spot.
  4. Morning drop off: everyone is in a hurry it seems to get to where they need to go. Please do not speed through campus. Do not pass unlawfully or unsafely. Be patient. Plan accordingly.
  5. If a staff member asks you to move your car or to park, they are doing what is in the best interests of everyone and to keep traffic moving. Please be respectful and do what they ask of you.
We thank you for your cooperation and appreciate your partnership in keeping everyone safe out there!
