St. Lawrence Elementary School
Mr. Richard A. Klus
Should you have a transportation
change, please call the Main Office by 2:15 PM so we can
make the announcement at 2:30. If we donít receive
notification from a parent/guardian, we have to put your
child on the bus.
With the weather turning cooler,
please make sure your child comes appropriately dressed for
the weather, so he or she can enjoy recess.
of the bus--parents, please do NOT take children from the
bus or the bus line. This causes great confusion and is
against school policy and safety. Should there be an
emergency, we would not know where a child is and whether he
or she is safe, and often our bus monitors donít know each
and every parent. Thanks for your cooperation.
you have a change of address or a phone number change,
please let the Main Office know as soon as the change
occurs. This is especially critical in case of emergency.
Please DO NOT pull into the parking lot off of
Carson Avenue to drop off your children. There is no easy
way back out and children are entering and exiting all the
time. Along those lines,
please avoid Carson Avenue altogether during dismissal times.
The busses park just past our driveway, and we need to keep
that space clear for the safety of the students. The best
way to pick up and drop off is by using the Warsaw entrance
and exiting through the Sturm Street gate. If the
congestion continues on Carson Avenue, we will begin
dismissing only to the parking lot by the Parish Center.
Thanks for your help in keeping our little ones safe.
Remember, a child must be fever free for 24 hours in
order to return to school. This prevents passing sicknesses
from student to student.
Head lice have returned.
Here is the St. Lawrence policy on preventing the spread of
these little critters: we have students put their
belongings into a Glad garbage bag that only they use. This
prevents clothing and backpacks from coming in contact with
each other, and spreading the lice in that manner. If your
child is sent home with a case of head lice, please ensure
that he or she comes back to the Main Office to be checked
before returning to class. Do not share hats, scarves,
coats, headphones, or hair accessories. We keep our
headphones in separate bags and each student has his or her
own set of headphones.
If your student is tardy,
please escort him/her to the Main Office for a tardy slip.
Classroom teachers will not admit students after 8:00 AM
without a tardy slip.
We will not have classes on
Friday, October 24 for a faculty in-service.
Finally, please ensure that you are checking your childís
Thursday Envelope each week. There is much important
information going on, and this is our primary means of
Enjoy the leaves and the cooler
weather as autumn reflects Godís colorful palette.

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
