Welcome Back! 

We’re so glad to have all of our Sparks back at school! We had many fun events this first week including an All-School Rosary to celebrate Our Lady’s birthday and our Summer Reading and Math Celebrations.

Pick-Up Reminders

Running Late!

If your student(s) arrive after the 8:20 a.m. bell, please park your vehicle and walk your children to the door and ring the bell for admittance. It is required that you sign your student(s) into school if tardy. Thank you!

Family Name Placards
For safety reasons and to help our staff, please be sure to prominently display your family placard during afternoon pickup. It is suggested that you have it placed on the passenger-side sun visor for better visibility by staff.

Buckling-In Protocols

If you need to buckle children in car seats at pick-up time, please let an Embers staff person know when you first enter the pick-up line. We will open up one of our handicapped parking spots so that you have ample time to securely buckle your children in. Thank you for your cooperation with this, as it helps our pick-up process run smoothly!
