PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

Mr. Richard A. Klus
Dear Parents,

What a journey we have shared this past year. I hope everyone has grown in academics, relationships, and spirituality. Thank you for entrusting your children to us. I certainly hope we have exceeded your expectations of us.

EdChoice Checks are in the Main Office. If you havenít signed your check, please do so. If they were not signed by Wednesday, May 27, your childís report card will be held. Please note that we will not be able to have you sign checks on Friday, May 29, as this day is very busy. To receive your childís report card, please come to the school office after Monday, June 1, sign your check and then we will release the report card.

Report cards will also be held for those families who have outstanding balances on tuition, library books not returned, or other items outstanding. Please make sure that you have taken care of your obligations before the end of next week. If you have a financial situation, please contact me as soon as possible so we can correct it and avoid holding report cards. Even if you donít pick up your childís report card, his or her enrollment status is on hold until all financial obligations are met. Moreover, we will NOT release records to any school unless all obligations are met.

Please note that our dismissal on Friday, May 29 will be at approximately 10:00 AM. There is no bus service on Friday.

Please note the calendar for next year, which is attached to this newsletter. School officially starts on Tuesday, August 25 at 8:00 AM sharp. Seems like a long way off, doesnít it?

Please do not drive into either Carson parking lot from 7:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Once again, we have had a near miss when one driver was backing out and our smallest students were coming to breakfast. It is still dark enough, and they are short enough that a tragic accident almost occurred. The life of a child is more important than the few extra steps from Carson Ave. or the Church lot to the cafeteria or school building.

Beginning next year, students will be dismissed from the Sturm parking lot ONLY. The only students who will be allowed to exit from the Carson Avenue side of the building will be Preschool students, and those who take the bus. All parents/rides/carpools are expected to use the Sturm parking lot. This will free up congestion and dangerous situations on the Carson Avenue side. There is ample parking in the Sturm parking lot, and a smooth traffic pattern.

Sign up for EZText Texting Service by texting EZHUG90045 to 313131. This will keep you in the loop concerning latest information from me. The service is free and only I can generate messages. Thanks!

Come by and see the field construction. This will be an artificial turf field, so our Physical Education classes can play outside, and will provide a safe place for our daily recess times. What a gem to have here on Carson Avenue!

Finally, I encourage you to read to your children over the summer to avoid reading fluency loss that occurs every summer. This will help your child hit the ground running in the fall.

In Christís Peace,

Mr. Rich Klus,
Principal
 



  • Arrival 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.

  • Dismissal 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 Carson Avenue.

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.

  • MEDICATION POLICY 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.

  • EdChoice Acceptance Forms are due in the office as soon as possible, please.
