PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

Mr. Richard A. Klus
Dear Parents,

Spring may have sprung. Yay! We should be finished with our snow days. Since we are several hours below the minimum required by the Archdiocese, we will need to have March 27 as a make-up day. So, we will have classes on March 27. Please plan accordingly.

Congratulations to the following students who earned CISE Scholarships for their high school careers: Jayla Abney, Jacob Hickey and Ocean Wu. These scholarships are worth $4000 per year for four years! There are other students still in consideration for additional scholarships; stay tuned for more names! Great job!

Please remember to support our PTO FISH FRY on each Friday (including Good Friday) in Lent from 5 PM to 7 PM. The PTO is a critical organization to promote, foster, and support positive relationships between our students, parents and teachers. Your support is greatly needed. Please consider working a shift, and encourage your friends to come!

Our DRAMA CLUB is busily preparing the Spring Production of ďHolka Polka,Ē a rollicking comedy about witches, fairies, and saving the Prince. Director Becky Rogers has been tirelessly working with students for several weeks. Please support our Drama Club by attending this wonderful show, March 19 and 20 at 7 PM in our Fr. Westerhoff Performance Hall. Please call Becky at 481-7819 for tickets or more information. St. Lawrence is blessed to have this valuable extracurricular activity for the benefit of our students. As a former music teacher, drama director and lover of the Arts, I canít stress enough how this program benefits students. Thanks for your support.

Registration for current students is underway. You parents received this information previously. It is critical that you provide all requested items at the same time. If your registration is incomplete, it will be sent back to you. This way, we can keep all papers together and save you and ourselves time.

The Important Dates section of the Newsletter contains valuable information for you; please refer to it weekly as it changes.

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.

Remember, a child must be fever free, vomit free, and diarrhea free for 24 hours in order to return to school. This prevents passing sicknesses from student to student. This is especially true for children who go home the previous day; they need to stay home the next day to complete the 24 hour period. Students who come to school the next morning will be sent home to prevent the spread of sickness.

Please do not pull into the Pre-K Parking Lot by the modular. Since leaving requires you to back out, it can create an extremely dangerous situation. Thanks for your

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.
