5th Grade Updates

WEEKLY REMINDERS FROM THE TEACHERS:

  • Please provide a well-fitting mask to your student(s) that covers their mouth and nose at all times when inside!
  • Bring your fully-charged Chromebook to school everyday. 
  • Reminder to submit Patient Consent Form for COVID testing at the beginning of the week. If a student is absent the day of COVID testing, they will not be able to return to campus until they are tested outside of school AND receive a “NEGATIVE” result.
  • Please remember to check Schoology daily, especially the Homeroom pages. If you are having difficulty accessing Schoology feel free to contact Mr. Lopez (elopez@sp-apostle.org) so that he can support you in getting that access.

PATIENT CONSENT FORM

 


SPA FACULTY & STAFF CHRISTMAS FUND
SPA families have a long tradition of generosity toward our amazing faculty and staff at Christmas time. In lieu of giving individual gifts to the teachers and staff, please contribute to the SPA Faculty and Staff Christmas Fund and make gift-giving easy.
All parents are invited to contribute between now and Wednesday, December 8th. The SPA Faculty and Staff Christmas Fund will be distributed as Christmas bonuses and your family name will appear in a Christmas letter to be distributed before the holiday break. Participation is optional.
We hope to show our appreciation and gratitude to those who do so much for our children each and every day. Thank you for your continued generosity and support!

HOT LUNCH UPDATE
We have been hearing that the daily lunch lists for Freshlunches are not always accurate. Please double check your orders each week and let you your child know if he or she can expect to receive a hot lunch that day.

If your child is mistakenly excluded from the lunch list, instruct your child to speak to the server and ask for one of the extra lunches that are available. 


PICK UP PROCEDURE DURING SCHOOL HOURS
If you are picking up your student during the school day for appointments or other reasons, please follow this procedure.
1. Email your homeroom teacher and Nurse A ahead of time. For upper grades, you may also email your teacher for the class(es) your student is missing if you know the schedule.
2. Remind your student to go to Nurse A’s office before the time of pickup.
3. About 10 minutes before arriving, call Mitchell at the front office so he can inform Nurse A.
4. When you arrive at school, please drive up to the playground gate.
5. Let the guard know you are picking up your student from Nurse A and give your student’s name.
5. Wait for your student near the playground gate.
