Welcome Ms. Kim Nimietz
After a long and thorough search, please welcome the new Director for St. Joseph's Children's Center: Ms. Kim Nimietz. The new director position will combine the Director position and the Supervisor position into one. Adjustments have been made to the administrative structure and to the method of billing to free Ms. Nimietz up for her other responsibilities. Please welcome Ms. Nimietz to our wonderful school!
Scrip has just gotten easier! Already an easy way to support to our school, Scrip can now be purchased online! Just follow these directions. Payment can be made by bank draft or credit card. Please note that credit card purchases are worse for the school - they REDUCE the school's portion by 3%.
Each scrip card gives a percentage back to our school. They're just like gift cards that can be used for everyday things like gas, groceries, or clothing. An updated scrip order form is available for download. Support the school with scrip today!
Winter Weather Information
SJS will follow Kennewick School District’s closures and delayed starts. For the most up to date information, look on the KSD website: www.ksd.org. Messages will also be announced on TV and radio stations in the area. When St. Joseph’s School has a 2 hour delay, the Children’s Center will open at 7:00am, instead of 6:00am. When there is a 2 hour delay there will be no AM Preschool, there will be PM Preschool. Be sure to continue listening as sometimes the delays turn into closures.
When school is open or on a two-hour delay during a day of snow and ice we realize that your particular residential street may still be dangerous regardless of how well the main streets have been plowed. If you can’t make it due to the weather we will treat it as an excused absence. Just call or send a note. Your decision regarding the safety of your family will be respected.
Parking Lot Reminders
Please remember, as you are dropping off and picking up your student(s), that the spaces marked "Reserved for Art & Wine Auction Winner" are, in fact, reserved. The winners attended last year's Art & Wine auction and purchased the opportunity to use those very convenient parking spaces. Please do not park in these spaces, even for "just a quick minute". If you would like the chance to use one of these highly coveted parking spaces, be sure to get your tickets to this year's Art & Wine Auction, where they will be sold to the highest bidder!
On a safety note, please be sure that you are driving slowly and carefully through both the school and church parking lots. Our parking lots can be very busy places, so please always be vigilant and careful.
