STUDENTS DISMISSED FOR SUMMER TODAY AT 11:30 AM
NO LUNCH PERIODS
St. Hilary School students will be dismissed from school for the summer at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 30. No afternoon buses or Latchkey will be available. THERE WILL BE NO LUNCH PERIODS. The May Hot Lunch menu incorrectly listed hot lunch as an option for May 30. Students who ordered lunch for May 30 will receive a credit to their account for August. The Skyway lunch will be offered as a "Welcome Back" lunch on the first day of school.
PROCEDURE FOR 11:30 A.M. DISMISSAL ON MAY 30
To safely and efficiently accommodate the large number of families picking students up, we will follow the procedure below for early dismissal:
There will be no pick-up line. All children will be held inside the building for dismissal. Parents are asked to park on or near the St. Hilary School property and walk to the building to retrieve children. Parents may enter the building through one of three sets of doors:
The main doors (by the Jesus statue), the Horning Hall doors, and the Moorfield Road doors.
Students will be called in groups over the PA and held in two locations for dismissal based on the last name of the school family with whom they will go home.
1. If a student will be going home with a family whose last name begins with A-G, he or she should report to the Multi-Purpose Room when called and wait there to be picked up.
2. If a student will be going home with a family whose last name begins with H-Z, he or she should report to Horning Hall when called and wait there to be picked up.
If a grandparent, neighbor, or other “non-school family” driver will pick up your child for you, your child should go by his or her own last name. Students who ride the Kids Country bus should report to Horning Hall. Students with a note on file permitting them to walk home may exit through the Moorfield Road doors ONLY and walk as usual. Students will be supervised by school staff during dismissal.
We are following this procedure in response to parent suggestions. To assist us in safely and efficiently dismissing your children, your cooperation is needed with the following:
· ALL STUDENTS MUST KNOW HOW THEY ARE GOING HOME WHEN THEY COME TO SCHOOL. If you will not be picking up your own child, please make sure he or she knows on the morning of May 30 who will be picking him or her up, and whether to report to the Multi-Purpose Room or Horning Hall.
· PARENTS MUST WALK CHILDREN FROM THE BUILDING TO THE CAR. While we will have school staff assisting in the parking lot, there will be an incredibly large volume of traffic moving in the lot, with cars pulling into and backing out of spaces. Please make sure you walk with your children using our marked crosswalks.
· PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THE SCHOOL PERSONNEL ON DUTY to make this procedure go safely and smoothly for all.
Please contact us with any questions. As always, your child’s safety is our top priority.
GYM UNIFORM SALES MOVING TO WEARNUMBERONE
Effective at the end of this school year, sales of gym uniform shirts (required for grades 2-8) will be handled through our school uniform supplier, WearNumberOne. This move will consolidate all school uniform, gym uniform, and spirit wear apparel in one place. To help make this transition as smooth as possible, we are asking all families to pre-order gym uniform shirts now to be picked up at Back-to-School Night on August 22. Orders can be placed and paid for online at http://wearnumberone.weebly.com/st-hilary.html. To ensure that your child has the size shirt he or she needs for his or her first gym class, pre-ordering now is strongly encouraged.
Questions about sizing or ordering can be directed to Marie-France Londa at firstname.lastname@example.org.

IMPORTANT UPDATES FROM THE CLINIC
By the end of this school year: If your child has medication, an Epi-pen, etc. stored or administered in the clinic, please be sure to stop by on or before the last day of school (May 30) to pick these items up. Any medication not claimed by dismissal on the last day will be discarded.

Please do not wait until school starts to complete these forms and have them signed by a physician. Forms can be found here.

Kenneth Bailey was an Anglican priest and scholar. He lived in the Middle East for over 40 years among villagers and other scholars and systematically studied the culture, ancient Middle Eastern commentaries and scripture translations to help bring light to the scriptures that were written with that mindset and for that audience. If you are coming, please order your own copy of the book (InterVarsity Press) and contact Randy Malick in the parish office (email@example.com) ASAP so we can reserve adequate space.
INQUIRY BEGINS JUNE 24
Fr. Steve Brunovsky, Pastor, and Randy Malick, Director of Faith Formation of Adults, are inviting non-Catholic parents of next year's 2nd graders to a series of informal gatherings to learn about more about the faith, particularly since your child will be entering the important sacramental year in the fall, including First Reconciliation and First Communion. However, ANYONE interested is welcome to attend. The gatherings, called “Inquiry”, are a prelude to adult faith formation for those becoming Catholic, but no one is required to participate in the fall RCIA classes unless that is their desire. They are held on 5 Mondays during the summer beginning June 24. If you are interested, please contact Randy in the parish office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SCHOOL OFFICE SUMMER HOURS
The school office will close for the summer on June 6 at noon. The office will re-open for the 2019-2020 school year on August 12 at 9:00 a.m. Assistance with enrollment for new students is available throughout the summer by calling 330-867-8720, ext. 343 or emailing email@example.com.

FALL FEST 2019- ADDITIONAL CO-CHAIRS NEEDED
The St. Hilary Fall Fest is an annual fun family event for our school community. It is a well attended event that 350-400 people typically attend for dinner, carnival games, and a projected movie. The planning committee has grown smaller over the last couple of years and needs to grow so we can keep this fun family event. The current committee families have junior high students and will soon be moving on to high school. We are in need of 2 or 3 additional co-chairs to plan it this fall. The co-chairs would be for 1) registration 2) games 3) dinner. These positions are already well organized, they just need someone to head them. If you are willing to take on one of these positions and shadow the current committee members, please email Stephanie Reese at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is normally scheduled for the 3rd Saturday in October.
