Dear Parents, Physical, vision, and dental forms are due now. There will be a school exclusion date by law later this month for students not in compliance.

Is your child in After care? If you need to contact someone in After care, email Ms. Mullins: mmullins@olc- school.org. She monitors her email constantly during After care.

Are you good with money? We need counters to count parish funds: Mondays at 8am. Email me if you can volunteer. This is a long term volunteer opportunity (at least ‘till May).
