Urgent Attention – Immediate Action Required
We have been notified by St. Thomas More that some OLM parents are parking in their back parking lot adjacent to Mary Avenue Park. There is a reduced number of available parking spots due to fire regulations therefore OLM parents are no longer permitted to park there. OLM parents are welcome to park along 12th Avenue and walk through the STM lot and along the track to bring their children to school.

Halloween Candy Needed
We will be collecting wrapped candy for the Agape Street Ministry. This local ministry provides street youth with meals and treats throughout the year. We ask that your child donate a portion of his or her candy to this worthy cause. Please bring the candy in a baggie marked “Agape” to school between Tuesday November 1- Friday November 4.

Illness
Please send an email to the office ([email protected]) if your child is absent. This includes all absences such as vacation, medical appointments, illness’ etc.)

We are getting several emails asking what the protocol is if your child tests positive for COVID. As per the CDC Government website, below is a copy of the protocol and what to do if you test positive or have symptoms:

If you test positive for COVID-19 or have symptoms, regardless of vaccination status, follow the steps below to care for yourself and to help protect other people in your home and community.

Stay home for at least 5 days

  • Stay home for 5 days and isolate from others in your home. Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and can recover at home without medical care. Do not leave your home, except to get medical care. Do not visit public areas and do not go to places where you are unable to wear a mask
  • Take care of yourself. Get rest and stay hydrated. Take over-the-counter medicines, such as acetaminophen, to help you feel better.
  • Stay in touch with your doctor. Call before you get medical care. Be sure to get care if you have trouble breathing, or have any other emergency warning signs, or if you think it is an emergency.
  • Do not travel and avoid public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis if possible.

As a reminder, it is the parents’ responsibility to do the Covid Daily Health Check at home each morning prior to bringing your child to school.
