Boys Soccer Tournament Cancellation and Carp Fair Forms

posted Sep 26, 2019, 6:00 AM by St. Michael ‎(Corkery)‎ School

Good morning,

Due to weather conditions, the boys soccer tournament scheduled for today has been cancelled. We will share any information about a possible rescheduled date for the tournament when we receive it.

Also, it has come to our attention that there was some inconsistency with the messaging for the Carp Fair forms. The intent of the form was for parents to send it in to let us know that their children would NOT be attending school on Friday. In error, some forms asked if their children WOULD be attending school on Friday.

In order for your children to be marked as Absent Approved on Friday, you must send in the form or call the school on Thursday evening or Friday morning.

There is no need to send in the form if your children will be at school on Friday.

We are sorry for any confusion. 

We look forward to working with the students that are at school on Friday and hearing all about everyone's Carp Fair adventures this weekend, on Monday morning.
