DUE TO THE HIGH RISK OF FLU this year, and in our effort to contain transmission, any student exhibiting signs of the flu, which include, but is not limited to:  fever, chills, nonproductive cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle and body aches, headache and fatigue, and in some cases, vomiting & diarrhea, will be sent to the office and parents called for pick up. IF YOUR CHILD EXHIBITS ANY OF THESE SIGNS AT HOME – NO MATTER HOW MILD – PLEASE KEEP THEM HOME AS A PRECAUTION. If your child has the flu, doctors generally recommend that they do not return to school for one week. We are hearing of schools having to shut down completely because of widespread flu, and we are hoping that we will not have to do so. Thank you for helping us keep the flu away!



Sun., Jan 28  - CSW Mass/Luncheon/Magic Show – begins with 10:00 am Mass
Sat., Feb. 3 – Italian Feast Fundraiser – serving from 5:30 – 8:00 pm
