Dear Middle School Parents,

We realize that many students have fallen ill this semester. We would like to inform you of our middle school absentee protocol. If your child is out due to illness please advise them to look at the websites for information. We have assigned each student a buddy that will collect work and have asked those students to exchange contact information. Please make sure your child reaches out to their buddy for missed classroom and homework assignments. If you require books to be sent to the office for you to pick up, please request these books at the beginning of the school day in order for the books to be collected an end of the school day pick up. In addition, several teachers have folders or “spots” in their classroom where students can pick up missed worksheets once they return. It is the student’s responsibility to go to the folder for their missed work. We are encouraging our students to self-advocate and grow in their independence as they prepare for high school.

Fondly,

Middle School Teachers

Mrs. Darmanin           Ms. Schrader

Due to the increase of food allergies, ALL FOOD for birthdays or other celebrations needs to be approved by the classroom teacher and/or the school nurse PRIOR to being sent to school, or it will not be handed out. Ingredients need to present on ALL food. I apologize, but Dunkin Donuts, due to possible cross contamination at the store, will no longer be accepted in the school. In addition, bakery goods without ingredients will not be allowed to be handed out as well. Only items with ingredients listed will be allowed. Do not attack the messenger, but our student's safety is paramount.



*** IMPORTANT HOLY HOUR MESSAGE

Parents, we invite you to come to the Holy Hour. Students will sit together; however, this night is for you too. Jesus left the crowds many times to center himself and pray. Use this time to be a role model for your child. Help me impart the message that taking time to pray is important. Use the time to silence your everyday thoughts, focus on the gifts God has given you, and allow the Lord to take your worries
