2018/2019 Busing Updates:

At this time, due to the very low ridership, it was disclosed that Moorestown Friends and OLGC will be combined bus routes for 2018/19 school year.  There will be “HUB” stops for parents to drive students to for pick up as well as drop off. Assigned bus stops locations are being decided currently.  There will be 3 routes picking up Friends and OLGC on the same bus. Each bus will do AM drop offs and PM pickups at both schools.

 

Battle of the Books

On Wednesday, April 11, OLGC’s Battle of the Books team will take part in the county competition at Olson Middle School in Tabernacle. Team members include these eighth grade students: Dean Damato, team captain; Kiera Songhurst, team Secretary; Gabrielle Adams, Bernadette Carney The students have been working hard since October reading, meeting, and preparing for this week’s competition. Congratulations and good luck!


Safety/Security Meeting-RESCHEDULED

Father Damian and myself plan to hold a school community meeting on WEDNESDAY, April 18th @ 6:30PM/ Crypt.  Updates, future updates, and additional plans for our school and students will be discussed.

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.  


After School Concerns

  1. Please note that after our 3:00 pm dismissal, all car/walker students are under their parent's supervision.  Any child left without a parent is to report back into the building. These students will report to Aftercare, and the normal fees will apply.  Any student that remains in the parking lot must be under parent supervision. The school will not be held liable for students unattended.

  2. Students/Parents must use the CROSSWALK.  We were notified that students/parents are crossing throughout the streets, and must be using the designated crosswalks.
