Dear Parents and Students,
As we enter the 3rd week of school I would like to congratulate ALL of our students for a job well done! We are a blessed school because our wonderful students. Please keep up the good work. Remember, it is the little things that are done with great pride that makes St. Anthony a wonderful community.
The front entrance is the only entrance that should be used during the school day. If you drop off your child on E. Kings Hwy they are to enter the building through the front entrance.
Attendance in class is very important for all students. Arriving late to school or being picked up early, places unnecessary stress on your child’s academic performance and disrupts other in class. Students who have not made prior arrangements will not be allowed to leave school early. This includes parent request after 2:30pm. The end of the day is just as important as the beginning.
This morning we conducted a Fire Drill. Our efforts are to keep our community safe. Feel free to discuss it with your child this evening. Together we can create a safe learning environment for all.
Please remember that the deadline to waive insurance is August 31, 2016. ALL students must have the waiver filled out or you will be automatically enrolled and assessed the fee.
