Mr. Richard A. Klus
Dear Parents & Students,

This week marked several wonderful events here at St. Lawrence.  On Monday, our Families got together for the first time, which was a good experience for our older students to lead and for our younger students to become closer to each other.  Special thanks to Mrs. McLaughlin, Mrs. Tyler and Ms. Sneddon for facilitating this event, and for all staff and all students for their engagement and cooperation.

Our Third Grade took the Ohio Achievement Assessments this week.  This is the last time they will take the Assessments, as the Ohio Department of Education is moving to the PARCC Assessments in the spring.  When ODE lets me know its path, I will let you know what is in store.

Thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Long and Mr. and Mrs. Hickey for taking the lead on the Halloween Happening Festival; this will take place on October 25 in the Parish Center.  This fun filled evening is family friendly, and is low cost.  It is a fundraiser for the Eighth Grade, so they can have some fun activities in the spring.  Mark your calendars.

As cooler weather approaches, please remember that we have no supervision for students who are not eating breakfast; they will have to stand outside in the cold.  So, if your child(ren) donít eat breakfast, please try to drop them off as close to 7:45 as possible.

Our Buddy Card sales are off to a good start.  Please consider purchasing one for the low cost of $10.  We do not encourage students to sell door to door, so spread the word amongst family, friends, and co-workers.  The monies raised will benefit our third floor Art Room.  Sales end on October 22.  Refer to the flier for the neat prizes that your children can earn for selling cards.

Finally, remember that the 1st Quarter ends on October 22.  This week is the time to work and get those grades where you want them and expect them.  If you have any questions, please contact your childís teacher(s).

In Christ's 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.


  • 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.
