​**ALL NEW INFORMATION WILL BE HIGHLIGHTED**

Here is the link to the Thursday Folder

 

REMINDERS:

  • All WASD families are responsible for providing transportation to and from school tomorrow, Wednesday, November 25th.

  • We have an early dismissal tomorrow, Wednesday, November 25 for all students at 12:30 p.m.

  • We have a planned Remote Learning Day on Tuesday, December 1. Live instruction will take place between 8:45-12:30. Teachers will be in contact with details.

 

 

FAMILY VACATIONS/TRIPS UPDATED 11-23:

  • Any child who travels to any state outside of PA must quarantine from school for 14 days upon return to the state. This is under the new directive from the PA Dept. of Health that took effect on Nov. 20. This does not include travel to neighboring states for your everyday commute; however, it does apply to any other activities not part of the daily routine (i.e. Thanksgiving Celebrations, Shopping, etc.) Students may participate in virtual learning during this quarantine. Please contact classroom teachers prior to Wednesday, November 25 if planning to travel over the holiday so that arrangements can be made to take everything home before the break.

  • Quarantining of students no longer applies to family/friends visiting your home from out-of-state as long as they adhere to the Governor's mandate of receiving a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours prior to traveling to PA. 

 

 

REPORT CARDS:

  • All report cards are posted to the portal and ready for parents to view.

  • Log in to Rediker Parent Portal, then click E-Locker, and then E-Portfolio.

  • Please contact your child's teacher with any questions.

 

 

CALENDAR UPDATE:

  • I apologize for the many calendar updates this school year; however, the pandemic plays a large role in decision making. We do our best to follow the WASD calendar so that we have transportation available. The district has recently amended their calendar so we made some changes to reflect that. A copy of the new calendar has been posted to the Thursday Folder.

 

BOX TOP NEWS:

  • Box Tops Contest! Send in all "clipped" box tops with your child's name and

grade by December 11th and every student who participates will receive a

small prize. If you scan you're receipts via the App, send in those dates and

box tops earnings and your child will receive a prize too! See this weeks

Thursday Folder for the box tops "clip & scan" form. 

  • Install the App on your phone and register your account, search for 

St Andrew School or School ID 142196. Scan your store receipt via the App and our school earns money. Clip and send to school any valid box tops. 

 

 

HSO NEWS:

  • Poinsettia delivery to the school 12/9/20 

  • Next HSO meeting is 1/12/20 @ 6:15

 

VIRTUAL TIPS FOR SUCCESS:

  • FOR COMMITTED VIRTUAL LEARNERS:

    • Please be logged into your first class by 8:45 a.m. Failure to do so could result in being marked tardy.

    • Cameras should be on at all times unless instructed by the teacher. Turning the camera off without permission will result in an absence from that class period.

    • Communicate with teachers often about needs as well as when to pick up learning materials.

  • FOR STUDENTS ON QUARENTINE:

    • If your child is home for a day due to illness, allow this day as a true absence.

    • As children typically do not have all instructional materials with them for an unplanned day at home, it is counterproductive to have them logged in to class until arrangements can be made for pick-up of belongings.

    • Virtual should only be used temporarily if the child is quarantined for travel or illness. 

 

SCRIP NEWS:

  • Due to fraudulent activity, Raise Right had to change our online enrollment code. The code will be in the email from Mrs. Salmon on 11-16-20 rather than posted on the website. This only applies to new enrollments. If you are already signed up, no need to enter the new code.

  • Additionally if you have family members or friends using the Raise Right App, please contact us with their last names. We may not be able to give you ATP credit unless we know a person is associated with your family.

  • Contact Peg Wagaman (pwagaman@saintandrewschool.org) with all questions related to the scrip program.
