All parents wishing to volunteer at school in any way, (chaperoning, volunteering, helping in classrooms) must be fingerprinted through Morpho Trust.  It is required by the Diocese. You need to schedule an appointment online using the school's ID code, available from Mrs. Anderson. Parents who have not completed an updated CORI, completed the Safe Environment Training, and fingerprinting are not allowed to volunteer in the school. Cost is $35. Please discuss cost with Mrs. Willand if it is an issue. See Mrs. Anderson for more info/questions.


Here are some important notes for First Grade!  

·         Please send your child in with a water bottle every day. Water only please - no juice, milk or carbonated water! The students are allowed to refill at the water fountain if needed.

·         The students have snack every day.  We are a PEANUT & TREE NUT FREE class this year! Please send your child to school with a healthy PEANUT & NUT FREE snack. Your child's snack MUST BE packed in a separate bag. Students are not allowed to open lunch boxes in the classroom. 

·         The uniform guidelines are found in the handbook. The girls wear a navy or plaid jumper (available at Donnelly Uniform or the uniform closet at OLV only), navy blue skort (front flap only), white or light blue polo shirt, navy or white knee socks and navy, brown, grey (not silver or sparkly) or black dress shoes. They can also wear navy dress shorts (bermuda length) and ankle socks in warmer weather and navy pants and a navy button down sweater in cooler weather.  Boys wear navy dress pants, white or light blue polo shirt, navy or white socks and black, brown, grey or navy dress shoes. In warmer weather, the boys can wear navy dress shorts and sneakers. In cooler weather, they can wear a grey v-neck pullover sweater. Dress shoes are to be worn with pants. Sneakers may be worn with shorts. OLV  sweatshirt apparel is allowed in place of a sweater. Gym uniform is sneakers, white or navy socks,  navy blue shorts or sweatpants, navy or white t-shirt, and navy blue sweatshirt or OLV apparel sweatshirt. NO NAIL POLISH. Uniform Dress code will be enforced this year. Students who have 3 violations will loose the next dress down day privilege.

·         Notes can be sent to school via the folder system. You can also contact me through email. If it is something that requires immediate attention it is best to send a note in the folder.

·         Lunch envelopes will go home on Wednesdays and they are due back on Fridays. If your child is out on Friday please call Mrs. Anderson if they will be buying lunch the following week so she can plan for them.

·         Label your child’s sweaters and sweatshirts. When they come off they may get left behind!

·         Please fill out and return the How We Go Home paper. If your child is going home in a different way please send in a note, email or call the office. I cannot send your child home differently unless I have a note, email or phone call.

·         Dress Down Day reminders – no tank tops, skirts and shorts MUST be fingertip length (hands by sides), buttocks must be covered at all times if wearing leggings, no sandals, no open toe shoes or flip flops.
