Dear Parents,

Over the next few weeks I will be contacting many of you to request either new, or updated information regarding health care concerns and individual plans for students with medical conditions which may affect them at school. This includes food or insect allergies, diabetes, etc. It is important that I have this information, as we strive to provide the safest environment possible for your student.

In addition, if your student will be taking medication at school, please fill out this Authorization for Medication Administration and return it to school.

Thank you!

Coordinator, Saint Alphonsus School Health Program

—Students who become ill or injured during the school day must go to the Nurse’s Office. If it is during class time, the student must inform the teacher and request a pass to see the School Nurse. The nurse will determine whether the student must go home due to illness. If it is decided that the student should go home, the nurse will contact the parent/guardian. It will be established at that time how the student will be transported home. Students are not to contact parents/guardians via phone call or text before they have seen the nurse If the student will be going home, they will get their belongings and then the student must go to the Attendance Office to sign out.

Just for Seniors

If you would like to purchase a Senior Dedication Ad that goes in the yearbook, please see THIS FLIER from TheYearbookCompany.com. This is completely optional, but many seniors look forward to the nice personal notes from their family.  The price goes up the longer you wait to order one.  The final deadline is usually in January, and reminders will go out via BK Alive as it nears the deadline.  However, you can order early!

Starting this next year, the senior photo in the yearbook will be students wearing the BK graduation gown.  All seniors will be individually photographed at Bishop Kelly by Parker Portraits on October 12, 2022 from 8:00am-1:00pm. The gowns will be provided by BK for the picture.  This is a day with no scheduled classes, so students will need to sign up on a Google Form.  The form link will be sent out starting in September, and students must sign up by October 3rd.  Time slots will be given to students in advance, and they will be determined by the order in which people are signed up. There is no cost to the families for these photos.  The only cost will be if you choose to order prints.  Parker Portraits will submit the picture directly to Bishop Kelly.  If for some reason your student can’t attend this day, there will be an additional makeup day offered in November. More details to come on that date.

Parker Portraits will still offer parents the option for a traditional tux/drape photo if you would like one, but that will not be the photograph used in the yearbook.  You will just need to indicate on the same Google form if you would like this picture, and the cost for a tux/drape photo is a $15 sitting fee. Please note that this additional tux / great picture option is only available during the October date. When Parker Portraits comes to the school for the makeup day in November, the tux/drape picture won’t be available.

A few weeks after the sitting, you will receive information with a link to access the proofs.  If you had a tux/drape photo taken, you will also be able to view those, and can choose to order those photos at that time.  The only additional cost is if you decide to order photos.  

Senior quotes need to be submitted by November 30th.  Seniors will be submitting their quotes electronically through a Google Form, which will be sent to them in September.  They will be reminded of this after school starts this fall.
