We are called to be disciples of Christ!
A Month Dedicated to Our Dearly Departed Loved Ones and Their Holy Souls!
The month of November is a special one in the church, as we pray for our dearly departed.
Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen

Thoughts, concerns?
Please contact the school office.
Thank you for heeding our plea to deliberately stagger your arrival for our dismissal procedure. Back ups on Main Street can be problematic, and we appreciate your efforts in helping us to minimize the traffic jam! Please note that we expect to have to modify our current dismissal procedure in the coming months, to consider foul weather conditions including potential snow and ice.
Thank you for your patience and ongoing support!

As a much deserved reward for our faculty and staff's hard work, we have decided that rather than an "in and out" early dismissal day on Wednesday, November 25th, we will treat the faculty to a full day off (no school, no remote classes) before the holiday! We do understand that this my cause a level of child care coverage for your family situation, but are counting on your support in allowing our staff a day off in appreciation for a great start to the school year!

Thank you to the 127 families who completed the following survey pertaining to your Thanksgiving plans! The sheer number of survey completions indicates that our school families are willing to be SMART in order to remain SAFE.

Please be expecting an email reminding our school community, once again, of the Thanksgiving gathering guidelines as well as our recommendations for reentry on the 30th of November. Thank you for your ongoing support of our school's efforts to maintain a healthy school environment.

Each day that we are in school, in person, is a happy day for all of us.
Just a gentle, friendly reminder that all sick calls or emails should be directed PRIMARILY to our school nurses. While informing classroom teachers is a common approach, it is not enough for these days that we currently live in. Our school nurses take top communication priority, please!
