PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

Mr. Richard A. Klus

Dear Parents and Students,                       

The time is near:  The final week of school.  The end.  The final countdown.  The beginning of the end.  No matter what slang you use to describe it, the end of the year is upon us.  Time to head out and spend some chill time in the sun, with family, and with friends.  Time for picnics, family reunions, vacations and swimming pools.  Enjoy your summer!  You have earned it.

As we part ways for the all-to-brief time that we call Summer Break, I would like to especially thank some significant members of our staff who aren’t returning next year and to wish them all well:  Mrs. Hueneman, Ms. Montgomery, and Mrs. McAllister.  Thank you all for your time and treasure in working with our little ones.

I would also like to thank any and all parents who volunteered time in classrooms, on field trips, in the cafeteria, or hosting holiday parties.  Thanks to you, we are able to provide much of the same programming as our larger school counterparts. Thanks!

Our school is growing:  we are adding an additional Fifth Grade homeroom next year!  This is exciting, as we are able to continue to offer small class sizes to meet the needs of all of our learners.

We are having an increasing number of phone numbers, etc. that are not working or have changed.  Please let the office know if your information has changed.  We need to be able to contact you if there is an emergency for your child or an emergency at school.  Also, please sign up for the EZText service by sending EZHUG90045 to 313131.  Even if you have run out of minutes, this service will send a text message to you.  This service will continue over the summer and next year.

Reminder:  Please refer to the Handbook concerning hairstyles and designs in hair.  There are to be no designs shaven into hair.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Report Cards and transcripts, etc. will be held if there is any debt owed (fees, books, tuition, etc.) to school.  Also, even though you are registered for next year, your student will not be admitted until an arrangement is made with me.  Please call 921-4996 if you have any questions.

If you are receiving a letter because your registration is incomplete, please return it no later than JUNE 28.  Otherwise, you will not be able to return to St. Lawrence School for the 2016-2017 school year.

Attention Third Grade parents:  if your child has not passed the Third Grade Reading Guarantee test, you have received a letter telling you to enroll in the special Third Grade Reading program offered at Seton High School.  This is MANDATORY, and is STATE LAW.  If you have received such a letter, and have not yet enrolled, you will not be promoted to Fourth Grade, and your enrollment in St. Lawrence for the 2016-2017 school year is in jeopardy.  Please make sure you have made reading a priority.  Questions?  Call the school office at 921-4996.

Please continue to pray for the members of our community who need it: Ms Carmosino’s mother, Ms. Beck’s mother, and Mrs. Dudley’s mother.  Even a quick prayer at dinner or in the car is heard by our gracious and loving God.

 

Christ’s Peace,    Mr. Klus

 



  • 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.  There is no pickup permitted on Carson St.

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  - 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.  Many medications are regulated by Ohio state law and we must comply with these laws.  Thank you.  Click here for a Medication Permission Form.

  • 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.
