Today, September 25th, is Global Day of Climate Action; a reminder for us to come together as a community to help combat climate change. As a community, we have the responsibility of caring for our planet by taking direct action. Although we are following a shelter-in-place guidance, there are little things you can do to help make a difference and reduce your carbon footprint, such as turning off your lights when you leave a room or continue to actively recycle. 

Let us pray.

God, We pray that you watch over our global community, especially during these uncertain times. Help guide us to continue respecting and nurturing the Earth. Let us also pray for all the creatures that are currently having to seek refuge due to the destruction of their habitat and we continue to protect and preserve their beauty. AMEN

You may record your prayer intentions in the Book of Intentions at the St Julie alcove in Manley Hall. You may record your prayer intentions in the Book of Intentions at the St Julie alcove in Manley Hall. Prayer mats for daily Muslim prayers are available in the Learning Commons and for use in Our Lady's Grotto and adjacent patio areas. Our Lady's Grotto and the SLC Courtyard also serve as places for prayer and reflection.

Allergy Notice
We have several students for whom potentially life-threatening food allergies are a reality.  In order to ensure the safety of these students, we want to inform, and remind, everyone of the following: 
1. There is a strict no food/beverage policy in ALL buildings, including classrooms and common areas (i.e. couch in Manley foyer).  The only exception is for classrooms used for club/co-curricular meetings, at the end of which ALL desks where food was consumed need to be wiped down with the food-surface-safe spray. 
2. There will be one table in Pardini, 3rd St Cafe, SLC Lounge, and SLC Courtyard that is designated as ALLERGEN FREE.  Students choosing to sit at these tables MUST NOT consume any products with eggs, shellfish, or nuts/tree nuts.  
3. There are particular classrooms that will be marked as nut-sensitive.  If you are in one of these marked classrooms for a co-curricular activity or club meeting, please be mindful to not consume nuts in this room, and to be sure to carefully wipe down desks.

Picnic Table Etiquette
Picnic tables in Pardini Park and the 3rd St Cafe are all first-come, first served.  This means that nobody can claim a table as theirs for the school year, nor can anyone remove items that a student(s) have placed there before going to purchase their lunch or heat up their lunch.  Additionally, the tables are for SITTING -- there should not be any tables only used for storing bags during the entire lunch period. Be courteous and respectful to your peers; invite other students to sit with you if you have space, and respect other people's belongings if they have set them down at a table at the start of the period.
