St. Lawrence Elementary School
Mr. Richard A. Klus
Dear Parents & Students,
We are now past the
midpoint of the First Quarter, which ends on October 22. It
is never too late to improve your grades. Keep up the hard
work and your effort will be rewarded. As the leaves slowly
change from the summer green to God’s autumnal hues, so
grades can change. As Winston Churchill is often quoted,
“Never, never, never give up.” This is true for any and all
grades. Should you have any questions, please contact your
child’s teacher. Our staff is always willing and is quite
able to help you in any way we can.
Achievement Assessments will be administered to Third Grade
students the week of October 6-10. So, get good rest, eat a
good breakfast and do your best.
Should you have a
transportation change, please call the Main Office by 2:15
p.m. so we can make the announcement at 2:30. If we don’t
receive notification from a parent/guardian, we have to put
your child on the bus.
If 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. Several students have
outstanding immunization records. If we contact you, please
get those to the Main Office as soon as possible.
Remember, a child must be fever free for 24 hours in order
to return to school. This prevents passing sicknesses from
student to student.
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 a.m.
without a tardy slip.
Enjoy the leaves and the
cooler weather as autumn comes our way.
Mr. 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

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
