Thanks to our new Administrative Assistant Mrs. Amy Janzen  for managing all of the back to school office details! Thank you to Mrs. McGivern and Ms. Anstett for their awesome efforts making the school ready for our return.

Families should have received a message about their new classroom teacher. If you missed it, do not fret, many staff will be outside at 8:35 to help you. We want to welcome each and every one of you to St Clement Catholic Elementary School. We are so proud of our amazing school and we cannot wait to see you all.

On the first day of school – you are welcome to bring your child to school and ensure that they connect with their classroom teacher outside. Students will look for their teacher on the blacktop. Teachers will be holding up signs with their names on them. We will have several staff members on hand to help all of the children find their teachers. Just before the 8:50 a.m. bell, students will line up with their teacher, physically distanced. Classes will be led into the school by the teachers, one class at a time. We will review line up areas, exits/entrances, and general expectations on the first day. Parents, after the first day of school we are requesting that parents do not go onto the blacktop area. For the safety of all and to avoid congestion, please do not congrats or linger on school property. A reminder that parents are not able to park on school property. 

Recess – We will continue to separate students on the yard by “zones” – We will be trying Kindergarten, Grade 1-4 and Grade 5-8. We ask that students do not bring balls and other outdoor equipment to school. All students should dress for indoor and outdoor physical activity every day and keep a pair of indoor running shoes at school. 

Agendas for Grades 1-8 will be distributed. We ask that you pay $5 on Cash Online to recover a portion of the costs. Kindergarten students will be using a communication of learning system. 

Allergy Alert & Medical Information – Please do not send your student to school with peanuts or any scented product (including perfume, hairspray, lotion, sanitizer). We are trying to keep all of our staff and students safe. If you are new to our school or if your child has a new medical condition, please email Mrs Almanza with this information
