The final days of summer are here and the administration, staff and teachers are busy preparing for the opening of the school year 2016-2017.
We know that you as parents are eager to get settled into a new year and have your family back on a schedule. So you are gathering stationery items, uniforms and other key things that will be needed to be well prepared for the beginning.
All summer we have prayed that each of our students and families have had a good summer. Time to enjoy vacation time and other family adventures that many times cannot be done during the year.
We look forward to seeing everyone and thank you for your interest in Our Lady of Hope and how you support us.
The following information will give you additional help in preparing for the opening of school.
May the remaining days of summer be restful, safe and enjoyable.
God bless you,
Sister Paula M. Randow, Principal
We continue to use the school website to provide communication for our families. The new diocesan system to replace Cornerstone is now ready for our families to register and learn the class assignment for your child/children. The new program is entitled RenWeb.
On the school website locate the RenWeb direction sheet. Please be sure your email address is correct that we have in the system. Follow the directions for logging in. If you have difficulty setting up your information, please feel free to contact school. [ ACCESSING RENWEB ]
For our new families, you have been entered onto the Instant Alert System. However, it is important that you go onto https://instantalert.honeywell.com and review and update information so that you will receive all the alerts that will be sent out from the school during the year. A direction sheet is available on the school website if you need assistance.
For our families returning it is important to also review the information for Honeywell.
