Important Information for Food Service on Monday, February 17

posted Feb 12, 2014, 5:02 AM by The Webmaster   [ updated Feb 12, 2014, 5:02 AM ]

IMPORTANT INFORMATION – PLEASE READ

On Monday, February 17, 2014 we will be making up a school day that was previously cancelled for weather. Since no one has had the opportunity to order lunch through food services, bag lunches will be provided, AT YOUR NORMALLY BILLED RATE, to all students who arrive without a packed lunch.

Payment arrangements will remain with Blessed Sacrament. If you have credit from a previously missed day, you may use that credit. If you qualify for Free lunch, you will not owe anything. If you qualify for Reduced lunch or you pay full price, billing will be handled by Blessed Sacrament as usual.

Thank you so much for your understanding under these unusual circumstances.

Important Information regarding Snow Make Up Days

posted Feb 7, 2014, 2:07 PM by The Webmaster   [ updated Feb 7, 2014, 2:15 PM ]

Dear Montessori families.

As you know, on Tuesday February 4th we ran into some trouble with our heating system at the South Campus. In order to make the full repair we needed to shut down the entire system. Instead of closing school for a FIFTH day this winter, we made the decision to hold all classes at the North Campus. This was an easy decision given my full confidence in the entire staff to make each day a productive and positive experience for our children. Needless to say we were not disappointed – our staff was excellent!

They exhibited creativity, focus on academics, teamwork and took a positive approach throughout the day. The results were impressive. It allowed our students to adjust and made it a positive experience – exactly what would be expected of a Montessori student.

Please allow me to thank you, our families, for the  faith you showed in us as well - almost 80% of our South Campus students came to school on a day you could have chosen to keep them home. That speaks volumes for the level of trust you feel for MRCS! We are humbled and grateful for your belief in our level of care for your child.

In regard to the four snow days we need to make up, the dates below have been changed as follows:

  • Monday February 17th will move from an in-service day to a normal school day.
  • Monday March 31st will move from an in-service day to a normal school day.
  • As reflected on the school calendar Monday June 9th and Tuesday June 10th will move from an in-service day to normal school days.

Please note: snow make-up days are considered regular days of school and fall under the PA School Code for student attendance.

 

Again, thank you for your support of MRCS!

 

Sincerely,

Anthony Pirrello, CEO
