INCLEMENT WEATHER
The Superintendent of Catholic Schools makes the decision to close schools due to inclement weather. The announcement is made to close “All Catholic Elementary Schools” on television or radio. Please listen carefully, since it is possible that the Catholic schools may be open even though Jefferson County public schools are closed. We will also contact parents by email and text.

On occasion, it may be necessary to begin school on a delayed schedule. If we are delayed, the cafeteria will be open to students at 9:10am with classes beginning at 9:55am. The school will close at the regular time.

No public announcements will be made about early dismissal in Jefferson County Catholic elementary schools except in the case of extreme emergency. If Ascension School dismisses early due to weather or other emergency, we will communicate through email, push and text.

Keep in mind, the above announcements and procedures (cafe’) are only followed if we are in-person/hybrid. If we are on NTI, we will operate on our normal schedule.

BOX TOPS COLLECTION
Did you know that Ascension is a Box Tops school? During this challenging time, our teachers and students need more help than ever. No matter what school looks like, Box Tops for Education is a fast and easy way for you to help out from home.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Buy participating products and use the Box Tops mobile app to scan your store receipt. The app identifies eligible products and automatically adds Box Tops to your school’s earnings online. Even if you’re shopping online or doing grocery pickup, you can still submit your e-receipts and earn Box Tops. Twice a year, our school gets a check!

The PTO uses money earned from Box Tops to fund our iPad program and other classroom needs for our students!

Here’s how YOU can help earn money for our school!
• DOWNLOAD the Box Tops app and select our school to support. This ensures that your Box Tops purchases count toward our school’s earnings.
• SHOP for Box Tops products and use the app to scan your receipt to add to our school’s earnings online.
• LOOK for any remaining Box Tops clips on packages. If you find some, clip them and send them to school!
• SPREAD THE WORD about Box Tops!
FUN TIP: You can also use the “Invite Friends” feature in the app to ask friends and family to help support our school!

Your earnings may seem small, but they really do add up. The more people that participate, the bigger the impact we can make. So let’s give our teachers the support they need and help give more kids the opportunity to dream. Little by little, we can help make a BIG difference.
