Academy Transition Update

We are very grateful to all the parents who made time in their busy schedules to attend the recent Parent/Academy Board Meeting. The governance model for the academy was explained and members of our Board of Directors were introduced. Rules of the Academy structure prohibit parents from sitting on the Board of Directors.However, parents are strongly encouraged to play an active role in the academy, it's goal setting and program planning by serving on sub-committees for three of the four central Board committees: Student Life, Institutional Development and Facilities. Parents are not permitted to serve on the Finance Committee. 

We understand that many families are keenly interested in the transition to an academy, but were unable to attend the meeting. The power point presentation from the meeting is posted under "Academy Information", as have the notes from the meeting, which were recorded and submitted by Diana Castenada (K2 Parent)

A sub-committee interest form will be sent home early next week. Please consider taking the opportunity to be a valuable contributor to the foundation of Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Catholic Academy and to your child's educational environment.

Option C Email and Alert System

Recently two notifications were sent out through the Option C parent alert system. If you did not receive an email notification of the weather related NUT day and/or a 9/15/13 email indicating a change in our gr. 5 teacher it is because there is not an email address listed on your Option C account or you have not selected email as an emergency notification preference. This year most mass emails will be sent through Option C, rather than echalk (this system). We are trying to move away from echalk to save costs, and because it is our diocesan required attendance and academic system. Therefore, it is the one system all registered families are entered into. Although our school office inputs mandatory information we do not put in secondary information or determine if you want email, voice and/or text notifications. Families are strongly encouraged to select email as a preference. Keep in mind that texts are limited to a number of characters and voice messages rely on your access to the phone number(s) listed. You may select as many, or as few, alert preferences as you wish. Directions on the Option C system may be viewed by selecting Option C Information on the left side of the echalk home screen. If you have designated an email account as a preference and are still not getting the emails, please check your spam folder.
