St. Lawrence Elementary School
Mr. Richard A. Klus
The weather has broken and the heat is
fading away as we look ahead to the autumn season. Be sure
to ask your students about the exciting things going on in
their classrooms, especially the implementation of our new
reading series, SUPERKIDS, in the K, 1 and 2 classrooms.
A couple of reminders: Please do not pull into the lots
off of Carson Avenue to pick up your children. This also
goes for the lot by the Preschool entrance and the Modular
in the back of school. Recently, we had a couple of
incidents where a parent pulled in and had to back out.
This creates an incredible safety issue, especially for our
little ones who can’t be seen over trunks, behind tailgates,
or back doors of vans. Please park in the lot by Church
(off of Warsaw and Sturm) and walk over to get your little
ones. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
Please make sure that your child is fever free for 24 hours
before bringing him or her back to school. Also, we must
have a current permission to dispense form on file for all
medications that are to be administered at school.
If your contact information changes at any time, please make
sure the Main Office knows so we can get in touch with you
in the event of an emergency.
Once again, I ask
that you drop your children off at school and allow them to
enter for breakfast. No need to accompany them. We have
plenty of supervision.
recordamos que deben dejar a sus hijos en la cafetería para
el desayuno. Las maestras están disponibles para ayudarlos y
luego llevarlos a sus aulas. Queremos ayudar a los niños a
que sean independientes para que puedan seguir la rutina de
la escuela. No se preocupen, nosotros ayudaremos a sus hijos
a que se acostumbren a la escuela. Les pedimos dejarlos en
la cafetería y nosotros nos encargaremos. Estamos muy
contentos de tenerlos en la escuela! ¡Muchas gracias!
Check on the calendar items elsewhere in this
Newsletter. There are some great things coming up, and I
would hate for you to miss out. At dinner time tonight,
please say a prayer for world peace and in commemoration for
the lives lost on 9-11-2001.
Rich Klus, Principal
Times: School starts promptly at 8:00
am but we ask that all students try to be here before so
that they are ready to start learning as soon as the bell
rings. There is no adult supervision for any students
arriving in the schoolyard before 7:45 am. The
cafeteria opens at 7:15 am ONLY for those students eating
breakfast at school.
Time: Students are dismissed at 2:45
pm. Please make arrangements to meet/pick-up your
children by entering the parking lot off Warsaw Avenue and
then exiting the lot through the Sturm Street gate. We
feel this is the safest route for all students being picked
up by parents as there will be several yellow buses and
after school care vans picking up other students along
REMINDERS FROM THE OFFICE:
If your child is absent from school, you are
required to call the school office (921-4996) before 8:30 am.
If there is no answer, press extension 35 and leave a message.
You must call the office each day the child is not in school.
Reason for absence notes should be sent to school on the first day
your child returns to school. If requested, homework will be
available in the school office after school and may be sent home
with a sibling.
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY - ALL MEDICATIONS for students
must be brought to the school office by an adult to be checked in.
No medicine may be brought to school by a student with the
exception of inhalers and epi-pens. No medicine may be brought on
the school bus or kept in a book bag. This change is for the safety
of all St. Lawrence students. Also, many medications are regulated
by Ohio state law and we must comply with these laws. Thank you.
If you are picking your child up early for an
appointment, please send a note with your child in the morning.
It is important that we know when and by whom your child is being
picked up. You must come to the school office to meet your
child and sign him/her out. Please try to make all
appointments after school hours.
All transportation arrangements must be made
with your child before coming to school. If transportation
changes must be made for your student please call the office and we
will get a message to them by the end of the day. Students
will not be permitted to call home after school.
