Good afternoon OLMC families!
As we celebrate the Labor Day weekend, I hope everyone finds the time to enjoy the cooler, calmer weather we are experiencing. Let’s hope this pattern continues for the first week of school.
There are several things which need to be communicated before our opening day on Tuesday. First and foremost, I ask all families to take seriously the health of our entire school community. If your child is not feeling well, please keep him/her home. In recent weeks, the school has been notified of several cases of coronavirus in the community. Thankfully those cases did not involve any serious health complications. My hope is that with everyone’s cooperation and vigilance, we can avoid unnecessary quarantines due to COVID exposure.
Students may be dropped off as early as 7:20 AM. For our opening day, September 7, parents of K- 8th grade students are invited to escort their child/children to the gym where we will gather for morning prayer as a school community. Pre-K parents may drop their children off at the classrooms and then proceed to the gym if they choose. Everyone is expected to be in a mask, per current guidelines. After the students are dismissed to homerooms, parents are welcome to enjoy a cup of coffee and share first day stories!
For our first day, students may wear the summer uniform, winter uniform or gym clothes. Masks will be worn as well. We begin school with full day sessions, so please pack lunch for your students. Snacks will be sold beginning Wednesday, 9/8. Pizza orders are due also.
After-care will begin on September 7. If you have not already done so, please send in the required paperwork on the first day. All forms are located on the school website under the “parents” tab.
Thank you for taking the time to read all of the above guidelines. With prayer and patience, we will have a successful school year!
Enjoy a restful Labor Day!
