At this time, all of you should have received notice that Bishop Brennen directed all Catholic schools in the Diocese of Fresno to be closed from Monday, March 16th to March 27th. School will resume on Monday, March 30th. I will be keeping you updated throughout this closure through email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please do not call the office. IF you or a family member becomes ill with the coronavirus, you must notify me. This is imperative for the health of all who work and attend OLM school. Thank you!
There have been questions regarding our See's Candy fundraiser. Thank you for participating. The only way to continue this fundraiser will be with our online storefront: https://www.yumraising.com/secure/olmp_our_lady_of_mercy_preschool53/candy?h=MarKra1627&c=fb2037
You can place your orders online and the candy will be shipped directly to you. HOWEVER, you will have to pay shipping. If your order costs too much in shipping, I would return the money to those who ordered and send them the link above. They can place the order themselves and you would not incur the shipping cost. Of course, you can return the money to those who ordered and just not participate in the fundraiser. My hope is that this fundraiser can still be successful for the preschool. Please email me if you need further clarification.
Parent/Teacher conferences for Mrs. Veronica, Ms. Irma, and Mrs. Donavan are postponed. When school resumes, I will determine if and when we can reschedule conferences.
Bunny pictures have been rescheduled to Wednesday, April 1st.
Priority registration for returning students will be extended until April 20th. If requested, I am happy to email the 2020 Summer Admission Agreement, as well as, the 2020-2021 Admission Agreement to you. This is for returning students only.
Finally, the teachers are working to get instructional information out through their blogs, www.olmlancers.com and email. Please, in the next two weeks, take time to work with your child. Also, instructional packets went home on Friday. If you did not pick up your packet, you can come by the school on Monday from 8:30am-12:00pm. The packets will be outside, by the gate, with your child's name on it. The gate will be open. If it is raining, the packets will be by the outside bathrooms. This will be the only opportunity to pick up the instructional materials.
I understand this is a trying time and hope all of you stay healthy! Be assured of our prayers and let us all pray for those who are sick, for those who have died and for their loved ones, and for the eradication of the coronavirus.
