Thursday’s Reunification Drill

Two years ago, the FWSB Diocesan Safety Committee determined it was necessary for all schools to hold a school-wide Reunification Drill. In our first attempt last year, we were successful in the drill, as all students were picked up, parents were informed, and we reviewed and implemented changes where necessary. This Thursday, September 14, we will have an opportunity to practice the Reunification Drill again. As an attachment to this week’s Email Blast, there is a sample form that will be presented to parents when they come to pick up their child. This week I will also send you a map via email and Remind text, so you know where to navigate for the drill. A few important key items to remember for the drill include:

  • Arrive at the school for a 2:00 dismissal for all students
  • Bring a current ID- we MUST have a current ID in order for you to pick up your child
  • If there is another adult sent to pick up your child in your place, written consent must be sent to school prior to dismissal. That adult must have a current ID in order to pick up your child.
  • PARK in the parking lot behind school and make your way to the appropriate student check-in line under the pavilion on the East side of the gym. You will look for the line under your child’s last name. If you have multiple children with different last names, you will need to line up for your oldest child’s last name.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience as we practice this mandatory drill in an attempt to improve the safety protocols and procedures of St. Louis Academy.

LIFE IS CHOICES

“Life is choices. Every day you make hundreds of choices.

  • What to eat.
  • What to wear.
  • What time to arrive.
  • Whom to hang out with.
  • Who to listen to.
  • What to care about.

Many of these choices can seem inconsequential. But one choice builds upon another, and in the end of our choices defines who we become.

Learning to make great choices is one of the most practical skills you can develop. Decision-making is central to everything we do.

Life is precious and beautiful. Life is also fragile and fleeting. Life is before you. This is what Joan of Arc wrote, just before she died at nineteen:

“I know this now. Every man gives his life for what he believes. Every woman gives her life for what she believes. Sometimes people believe in little or nothing, and yet they give their lives to that little or nothing. One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it and then it is gone. But to surrender what you are and to live without belief is more terrible than dying - even more terrible than dying young.’”

- From the book Decision Point, by Dynamic Catholic
