PARKING Hazards!

It is NOT OK to park outside of designated parking spaces in ANY lot. It has become dangerous and problematic – especially during afternoon carpool - as several parents are parking by the back gym door or outside of marked parking spaces. People trying to leave are being blocked in and children are unsure of where it is safe to walk. A designated parking space has lines on BOTH sides of the space. We have several lots and plenty of spaces. If you notice someone violating the carpool rules, please do not hesitate to report it to the school office immediately. These rules are in place for the safety of all of our children! Please be courteous and obey them.


MORNING ARRIVAL

Please remember that prior to 8:00am, parents will need to use a key card to allow their children into the building. There are still many children who ring the door buzzer as early as 7:25am. There are also children who bang on the door to be let in from 7:25-7:50am. Faculty and staff have a morning devotion and meeting each day until 8:00am. Morning drop-off staff cannot leave the gym to let children into the building. If you need to have your children in the building prior to 8:00am, USE A KEY CARD (parents only). Please see Mrs. Hannon in the school office if you need a key card.


The Panther Tale will Now be ONLINE

The Panther Tale will now be posted online on most Fridays. Select editions and other important notes will continue to be sent home throughout the year, and updates may be posted throughout the week.  You will be able to find the most recent updates on our Website and paper copies will be available outside the school office and in the church narthex.

ALSO…The bulletin boards in the lobby and office hallway hold many forms, registration and sports information, Panther Tales, informational flyers and MORE. Check it out!


 


**PLEASE call or email the school office if your child will be absent…

even if you have already notified your teacher. Thank you!**


Emails & Emergency Alert System

Please make sure the OSLS office has your current email address on file! We often send reminders, school closings and other important information–some with attachments - via email.  You may also use our email to ask questions. You may request to be added at oursaviorschool@oslslouisville.com.

ALSO – make  sure you are signed up for our Reach Alert System to be notified by text, cell phone, and/or home phone of weather closings or other urgent information. Please go to our Website at www.oslslouisville.com or contact the school office for details. If you have signed up for Reach Alert previously, there is no need to sign up again unless contact information has changed.


Check GradeLink

Parents, especially those who have students in grades 4 - 8 who participate in any afterschool activities, including sports, should be regularly checking the progress of their children on our GradeLink system. If you see failing grades, please contact the teacher with your questions. Students are not allowed to participate in afterschool activities with a failing grade at the end of a 3-week report period or at the end of a quarter. Constant monitoring should eliminate any surprise of ineligibility. See Mrs. Tate if you misplaced your login information.

Derby Day Walk-A-Thon, May 4

On Thursday, May 4, Our Savior Lutheran students will be participating in a Walk-A-Thon in connection with our annual Derby Day festivities.  We will be walking one mile thru the Hurstbourne neighborhood. Our goal is to raise enough funds to add new lunch tables and to contribute to the repair and eventual replacement of the bleachers in the gymnasium. A pleadge form and information was sent home. Any donation in any amount is greatly appreciated.  If each student brought in as little as $10, we could have an immediate impact!

 

Any student bringing in a minimum of $100 in pledges will be awarded an out of uniform day on Thursday, May 11.

 

Derby Day is May 4!

There are MANY activities are planned for "Derby Day" on May 4! Parents are invited to attend for all or any part of the day. We'll begin at 10am in the gym with opening prayer & songs and follow with a DAY FULL OF FUN!! All students will participate in a hat parade followed by class-sponsored activities and contests. From the Air Show to the Bed Races, we have it covered! COME JOIN US! PLEASE be sure you send in your chow wagon (hot lunch) forms by NEXT Friday, April 28 - when they come home - if any of your family will be eating lunch here that day. It is very important we have an accurate lunch count.
