Dear St. Joseph Catholic School Families:
As we continue our work on our plan for school communication this year, we’ve identified a need to be sure we’re reaching all families through email. To help do this, we’ve elected to generate a list of all email addresses that have been provided to the school and are hosted in our school management system, PowerSchool. This means that our correspondence with families will now go out to all the email addresses we have on file for the school as provided at registration time. Prior to this change, parents/guardians have needed to opt-in by signing up online to receive these communications. By choosing to employ an opt-in strategy, there have been quite a few families that have not received critical information related to their child’s school experience. This change addresses that.
This is the first email that we’re sending using the new list. Should you choose to opt out of receiving these messages (there’s an opt-out link in each email message we send) because it’s being delivered to an email address you’d prefer not to use, that specific email address will be removed from all school communications and it will no longer receive important schools news, including our Friday email communication, announcements about special events or school news, and emails regarding emergency situations or school closures. Opting out for a specific email address will not remove it from our school management system, so if there’s an address you’d like removed from that database as well, please call or email to let us know.
If you ever need to change your email address, please call the office to inform us, and we’ll make sure the change is reflected both in PowerSchool and our schoolwide email program.
We share this message in advance of an email that’ll come out Thursday, tomorrow, for parent-teacher conference registration. This year, as shared in last week’s Newsflash, we will be using an online conference scheduling program. Our new conference scheduling will provide families much more flexibility with scheduling conference times and allow middle school families the opportunity to meet with each of their child’s teachers. Tomorrow’s email will include the link to the conference registration site and directions for registering. Please be on the lookout for it tomorrow evening.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know.
In loving service to Christ’s mission,

Joe Manning, Principal
