Have an Agenda Item to add?
Our next meeting will be tonight, November 12th at 6:30pm.
KEEPING ALL OF OUR STUDENTS SAFE
Read the labels at each
purchase! Manufacturing processes change!
Avoid items with allergy and ingredient alerts such as: "May Contain Peanut or Tree Nuts" "Processed on shared equipment with Peanuts or Tree Nuts" "Manufactured in a plant with Peanut or Tree Nuts" "Contains Peanut or Tree Nut Ingredients" Your diligence is keeping an allergic child safe at school. Suggested Snack List

From the Desk of Ellen Knippel, Principal
This morning we had our monthly, all- school Fire Drill (Our students do an amazing job with these drills!). This week on Wednesday, we will be practicing a
Safety Drill (formerly known as a lock- down drill). In previous lock-down drills, we have stayed in our classrooms with the doors locked and lights out.
Wednesday's drill will be a little different in that students will learn how to evacuate if there were ever a danger situation while we are at Mass. Students will learn about the exits in church and where our "Meeting Spot" will be.
In the case of a danger situation, it is important to impress upon our students that they must always listen to the adults around them. We don't want students to be frightened, just aware and prepared. I realize this is not an easy type of discussion to have with your child - but it is important for all of us to keep our students safe. Our teachers are discussing this with the students before we actually do the drill on Wednesday, but I wanted you to be aware ahead of time in case questions are coming home. As always, please don't hesitate to call me with any questions or concerns.
Parent, Student, Teacher
