Middle School FAQ
What does the school day start?
The MS day begins at 8:10 a.m. We recommend that the students be dropped off between 7:50 a.m. and 8:05 a.m. to allow ample time to prepare for class.
What if my child is late to school?
A student is counted late if not in 1st period/Advisory by 8:10 a.m. bell. The student needs to go to front office and get a late pass.
Whom do I call if there are…
- Unplanned absences (such as illnesses)
The parent should call the front office or email mainoffice@St.AnnesSchool.org once they realize their child will be absent.
- Planned absence (such as trips)
As soon as parents realize that a student will be missing school due to a planned event, they need to email their student’s advisor and Lisa Nagel for Fifth and Sixth Grade (lnagel@St.AnnesSchool.org) or Fran Lukens for Seventh and Eighth Grade (flukens@St.AnnesSchool.org) with dates of the planned absence.
Students must collect any assignments ahead of time and may have to take any assessments beforehand. There may be additional work that will need to be completed upon their return.
The parent should email or leave a voice mail for the advisor.
Regarding a single subject with questions such as homework, comprehension or performance, the parent should contact the individual subject teacher. If concerns cover all subjects such as an overall decline in performance or an increase in stress levels, then the parent should contact the advisor.
How do Homework Buddies work?
Each student is assigned a Homework Buddy who is responsible for collecting that day’s work for the absent student. At the end of the day the missed work and needed books will be placed in one of the clear bins on the wall in the main corridor of the second floor. If a parent wants the material to go home with another student please e-mail the advisor by noon.
Whom do I contact regarding high school information?
Lisa Nagel, lnagel@St.AnnesSchool.org is the person to contact regarding high school related issues such as shadowing, recommendations and other information.
