- please inform Mrs. Bloomfield of any changes regarding address, phone number, emergency contact, etc. as soon as possible. It is extremely important that we have current information for each student.
Intent to be absent
- if your child is going to be away for more than 15 consecutive days (e.g., family vacation for a week) please see Mrs. Bloomfield in the office to complete an Intent to be Absent form.
- if your child requires medication while at school it is imperative that a parent/ guardian complete the proper documentation with Mrs. Bloomfield in the office. Student medications must be kept in the main office with proper documentation and a log is kept to indicate when students receive their medication at school.

A student in our school has a severe allergy to “peanuts”. Please help us avoid exposure to this allergen by sending peanut-free snacks and lunches to help keep our students safe.
HEALTHY DRINKS/HEALTHY ACTIVE LIVING
Research shows that it is important for all of us to keep hydrated and teachers encourage students to keep water bottles on their desks to sip throughout the day. We are committed to ensuring students have daily physical activity – a healthy body helps build a healthy mind.
NUTRITION FOR LEARNING PROGRAMS
During the 2017-18 school year, every student will be offered snacks for morning and afternoon nutrition breaks. These healthy, nutritious snacks are provided by Nutrition for Learning and are available to all students free of charge. If you are interested in volunteering to support this program or would like to make a financial donation to support Nutrition for Learning at St. Joseph please speak with Mrs. Reesor.
