Saint Wenceslaus Catholic School Office Update
From the Office of Principal:
Dear Parents, Grandparents, and Friends of SWS,
This week is staff appreciation week. Our Home and School Association has a few special treats planned for our staff.
Our staff has never worked so hard to keep our kids in school as we have this school year. So much energy has gone into planning every aspect in the building from the time we walk in, moving kids in the hallways, scheduling the bathroom use, to figuring out how our milk is distrubuted, and so much more including cleaning, stanitizing, and cleaning more. Our teachers have done double time providing education for in-person learning and for kids out on quarantine. Everyone on staff has pitched in to the fullest picking up so many extra duties because we have been short-staffed and without volunteer helpers in the building.
Our entire staff is so thankful for our Home and School Association. This is a group of school moms who meet once each month. All school moms are invited to particpate. It is a fun way to make new adult friends and to also help in the school where you can.
This year our Home and School moms have focused on making life a bit more pleasant for the staff by providing frequent treats, lunches, and special gifts. This group has given the staff hope and kept us all going during the toughest of times. The staff could not be more thankful for our Home and School Association! Although, this week they will show appreciation to the staff, we are so blessed by them and appreciate these ladies greatly.

Change in reporting Covid Test Results to school
We will now be asking for proof of the results when Covid tests are taken, negative or positive.
We will gather results that affect the date of isolation if positive, dates of quarantine if exposure, date of return to school after quarantine, possible exposures causing a full class to quarantine and possible Covid symptoms.
PCR viral test results are required. (Saliva, PCR nasal swab)
Rapid Antigen tests can be used if positive but not if negative.
Drug store kits do not count as a legitimate test.
Results will verify the data of the situation as we determine time away from school in the future.

Please turn in your payment for the fish fry tickets. We prefer ticket money to come directly to the office before the event.
$12 each (5 for preschoolers and 10 for K-8 )
