Dear St. Anthony and OLG Families,

We have been busy with Advent activities, liturgical celebrations, and Christmas programs. Thank you for your support in all these endeavors.

Visitors to Buildings – Please help us tighten up our practices when it comes to visitors entering our buildings. We all want to keep our children safe, so we need to ensure that any visitors to the buildings go immediately to the office to sign in. If you are bringing a student, a forgotten item, etc., please report to the office first, sign in, and wear a visitor badge. Do not go directly to a classroom. This applies to the playground, too. Students who come late will be asked to have a pass from the office, so they need to go there first. I know it may seem a bit formal, but if we continue to allow some people to come and go, what is to stop strangers from wandering in. Having said that, you are welcome to visit your child’s/children’s classroom and/or eat lunch whenever you would like. Thank you!

Communicating a child's absence or illness should be phoned in to the school office or emailed by 8:15 to the school secretary and teacher.  Please do not use SeeSaw.  The secretaries do not have access to those communications. Thank you for your cooperation.

Pajama Day – We have had another Best-year-ever suggestion. As a result, Friday, December 20th will be a pajama day. Students may wear comfy clothes on our last day before Christmas break.

Please look to your parish bulletins for Advent activities your families can attend.

Please submit pictures that you may take at school events for yearbook use to the following email address submit+944705@edophotos.com
