12:00 Dismissal this Wednesday, January 16. There is also a funeral at Mt. Calvary on Wednesday at 12:00, which is our dismissal time.
Because of this,we will be dismissing on Wednesday using the east doors (not the main ones). Those children riding the bus will be released first, at 12:00, and those not riding the bus will be released to you once the buses leave. So as to not disrupt the funeral, please let your children come to you, rather than coming into the building to pick them up.

HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF ILLNESS With it being cold and flu season, and because people tend
to stay inside during this time of year, the spreading of germs becomes more common. Please help us prevent the spreading of germs and illness by keeping your child home if (s)he is ill. As a general rule, keep your child home if (s)he has a fever, nausea, bad pain, persistent coughing, or vomiting/diarrhea. For the health of your child and others at school, please follow the 24-hour rule: only send your child back to school when (s)he is fever free (without meds) for 24 hours, has been on antibiotics for 24 hours, hasn’t thrown up etc. for 24 hours, etc.
