IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT OUR NEW TEMPORARY CLASSROOMS

Tomorrow we begin school in the portable classrooms. We are excited to see everyone, share the new classrooms with our students and families. Please refer to procedures for drop off and pick up beginning tomorrow. Phones are currently not ringing in the office; they are going to voicemail. Tomorrow they will be transferred over and begin ringing once again. In case of an emergency please call 239-348-5980, which is our Seton aftercare cell phone, which is in the school office. You may also call the parish office after 9AM. Mass is canceled this week as work is being completed in the church from Wednesday-Friday. Finally, for those picking up children from aftercare, please park your cars by the east side of the parish center and enter the aftercare rooms by the side closest to the gym. Thanks for your flexibility!

IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT SCHOLARSHIPS

Dear Parents,

It is the time of year where decisions for financial assistance scholarships are determined. Should you like to be considered for a scholarship please make sure to enroll or reenroll in the FACTS tuition management system. It is a requirement of the Diocese of Venice that all families attending schools set up a FACTS account. The information provided will be used to determine funds available for financial assistance. Even if you believe you don’t qualify for grant & aid, I encourage you to do so through the FACTS tuition management system. To be considered for a scholarship please set up or reenroll for a FACTS account AND apply for grant & aid as soon as possible. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school.

With Blessings,
Maria Niebuhr

There are more volunteer opportunities available before the end of the school year including: items needed for the Father & Daughter Dance, event helpers for the Father & Daughter Dance, assistance with the SES Uniform Closet, lunchroom assistance, and attending the monthly HASA Meetings.
