June 26, 2015

I hope your summer break has been fun filled and restful for your family! These past weeks have been very busy for those of us who have been holding the fort down! Here are some of the things we have been busy with.

The school board has made some changes to the dress code and tardy policies for the 2015-2016 school year. What follows is a summary of the changes to our uniform dress code:

  • Only plain white socks may be worn.
  • Shoes must be white, black, or a combination of those colors.  Leather shoes must be white, brown, or black.
  • Tights must be solid white, navy, or black; no footless tights.
  • Only red OLV sweatshirts purchased from Dennis Uniform or the OLV online store may be worn.
  • Students may wear any type of jacket to school.

An updated copy of the parent-student handbook will be sent home with your student sometime during the first week of school.  If you have any questions or concerns about these changes you may contact me in August for an appointment.

Summer homework and school supply lists for next school year are on the school website.  You can find them here: www.fresnoolv.org/student-registration/

The office will be closed June 29th through July 3rd.  Both Ms. Hirata and Mrs. McCraw will be in the office during July. They will keep the office open for limited hours, so please call first before coming to the school.

The annual used uniform sale will take place on August 11th through the 13th.  If you would like to get a head start on your parent hours, I need three or four people to help out with the sale.  The uniforms are all cleaned and ready to go. Helpers are needed to organize the clothes and supervise the shopping.  Please call the office if you can help us out!
