ATTENTION NEXT YEAR’S 7TH GRADERS AND PARENTS: Proof of a Tdap booster is required for your child by the first day of school in August. If you have already completed this requirement, please bring in the paperwork now. Whooping cough, also known as Pertussis, continues to threaten students in California. To help stop the spread, California state law requires all incoming 7th graders IN ALL SCHOOLS to show proof of whooping cough booster (Tdap) shot. Students will not be allowed to attend without an updated shot record indicating this immunization. As of January 1, 2016, a personal beliefs exemption is no longer an option for vaccines currently required for entry into school in California. In addition, all immunization requirements for age and grade need to be met prior to the student entering 7th grade. Mrs. Baloyo sent home a flyer about this a few months ago. If you have any questions, please contact our office.


SUMMER CONSTRUCTION AT OLA – The long-awaited school reroofing project will happen this summer. The roof will be replaced on the school buildings and a new skylight installed. Plans call for demolition to start on June 17. The school office will be closed during demo and part of construction, so all business with the school should be done before June 17, or a message left with the church office. The work will be completed in August.


KARMA DAY - The room parents from all grades will once again present Karma Day tomorrow, Wednesday, June 12 from 11:30– 2:30pm.  If you would like to help with a game or activity, please volunteer. Any parent hours worked will count toward next year, so you can get a kick start on 2019 - 2020! If you can help, please contact Jen Colitti at or (805)407-2335.
