WEEKLY REMINDERS


  • AM Arrivals

AS A REMINDER:  In an ongoing effort to keep your children safe, please be advised, that your child is not permitted to wait by the school entrance doors before 8:05; there is no supervision before this time.  Please note temperature drops with winter season and other weather concerns. Also, documentation of names of students will be taken, that are waiting outside prior to 8:05.  Parents will be receiving the necessary contacts home as warnings.


  • Emergency Alert System for Parents

Good Counsel School uses the Honeywell Instant Alert System as our primary means of notification both for emergency school closings and also for general school announcements. Since the school intends to use the system for school announcements, it is recommended that parents revisit their alert setup and review which alert types (school closings, general) on which contact devices (home phone, work phone, mobile, cell text and/or email) they would like to receive information.  Parents may want to consider using all possible devices for school closings but only the home phone and email for general school announcements. Please log on to activate or update your profile at https://instantalert.honeywell.com.


  • **AMAZON SMILE

On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you are prompted to select a charitable organization from our list of eligible organizations. You can change your selection at any time. To change your charitable organization: Sign in to smile.amazon.com on your desktop or mobile phone browser and Type in: Church of Our Lady of Good Counsel. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.
