April 21st, 2014


Dear Parents,

I don’t want to jinx myself, but I feel pretty confident that any bad weather is behind us, and we are safe to finish our school year in a timely fashion. With that in mind, I wanted to solidify some important dates that are coming up here in the very near future. I know the snow make-up days have disrupted some of the normal end-of-year procedures, but we are trying to stay on course as best we can.

Here is the schedule of important dates for the remainder of the year:

April 27th First Communion-11:00 Mass
April 28th First Communion party at Tyler Park (during school)

May 1st Derby Eve- 12:45 Dismissal; Derby Activities during school
May 2nd Oaks Day- NO SCHOOL; Extended Care open and operating on
normal hours.

May 14th 12:45 Dismissal Staff Meeting

Last Day for Pre-s and Pre-K

Yours in Christ,

Inclement Weather

Inclement Weather, we follow the Catholic Schools of Jefferson County.

For Delayed Openings


For our K-8 students, we back the day up exactly two hours. I will unlock
doors at 9:15 and start our morning message at 9:45.
For our Pre-school and Pre-kindergarten students, we allow them to come at normal
time…if each teacher has enough students to start class, then they will start instruction.
If we don’t have enough numbers at normal time, they will start some sort of activity
until school starts.

Morning care will start at 7:30 and continue until 6:00 p.m. on delayed days for anyone
needing to drop off their child at the normal time. If school is cancelled for the day, any
parent needing Day Care needs to call the office and listen to extension #11 for an update
and/or watch the local news channels. The status of Day Care will be updated by 6:00 a.m.
on each snow day so you can call to make sure Day Care is operating. IF we have to cancel
Day Care services due to inclement weather, it will be on both the office phone message
and on local t.v. stations under the
heading of “St. James Day Care”
