As we begin the New Year, the safety and well-being of our students continues to be our number one priority. We need your help to ensure that our students are prepared for the various weather conditions when they come to school.
Recess is a time for students to exert energy, refresh their bodies and minds, and take that needed break from their classwork. Students will go outside for recess unless it is too cold or we are experiencing inclement weather. Please ensure that children are dressed appropriately for the weather.
With the cold weather upon us, it is also a good time to review school procedures for Delayed Openings, Early Releases, and School Closings.
Saint Leo the Great School has students that reside in multiple public school districts who provide non-public schools with bus transportation. Those districts determine whether or not buses will run during inclement weather. The Administration MUST consider multiple school district busing schedules when determining whether to have a delayed opening, early release, or school closing. Please refer to the Snow Days and Early Dismissal Due to Emergencies section of your Student and Parent Handbook on page 23 for more information.
In the event of a delayed opening, early release, or school closing due to inclement weather or other emergency, the following procedures will be followed:
- Our school website (www.saintleothegreatshool.com) will provide notification.
- A detailed School Messenger notification will be sent to parents’ emergency numbers. Please ensure your contact information is current.
Thank you for your continued help with these important issues.
Additionally, this New Year brings our new Spring fundraiser – the SLG Spring Soirée. Our Spring Soirée will be held on March 28, 2020 at the Navesink Country Club. More details will be coming soon. I thank you in advance for your support of the Soirée and look forward to seeing you there!
