A Visit from Archibishop Sartain

Posted on December 12, 2013

Fr. Felino announced today that Archbishop Sartain will join our community during Advent and be the celebrant at the 10:30 Family Mass on Sunday, December 22.

We invite all our school families to come meet the Archbishop and show him what a vibrant community we are at St. George School and Parish.

Emergency Weather Procedure

In case of inclement weather, St George School will announce any delays or cancellations on our school website by 6:30 a.m. If the Seattle Public Schools are closed due to weather, you can assume we will be closed, too.

In addition, we will communicate this information to KING, KIRO and KOMO media outlets. However, because of changes in their reporting policies, we cannot ensure whether, or when, announcements will appear. In cases of delay where we have a 10:00am opening, there will be NO Morning Care Program. Students may arrive at 9:45 am, no earlier as staff will be running late, too.

Ultimately, our highest priority is the safety of our students, families and staff. Regardless of the official start status of the school, we always defer to parents in the use of their own best judgment with regard to whether, and when, it is safe for their children to come to school. When weather conditions dictate that families cannot accommodate the regular school schedule, the school will respect those decisions and consider those excused absences or tardies.

No Parking Zone

Thanks for respecting our No Parking Yellow Zones. In the interest of safety and smooth traffic flow, we ask parents to drive southbound on 13th Ave. during drop – off and pick up and westbound along Dawson Street on the south end of the school. Even though this pattern may force you to drive a block or two out of your way, it helps protect everyone's child and gets you where you need to go more smoothly. Having traffic both ways with cars parked everywhere is a recipe for trouble when transitioning 223 students. Children’s safety comes before convenience every time!

School Safety

Let's Keep the Traffic Moving Safely! We are doing our best to keep traffic flowing in the morning and after school. We ask that your drive southbound on 13th when dropping off and picking up your children. There is NO PARKING at any yellow curb. When picking up, if you don't see our child, please drive around the block so as to allow parents whose children are ready to be able to pick them up and go. If your child needs assistance getting in and out of the car, we ask that you park away from the school, outside the yellow zones, and walk to meet your child. We have also had reports of hurried drivers in the neighborhoods who are speeding due to tardiness. We ask that you respect our local community and maintain safe driving in the neighborhoods at all times. Police will be monitoring our area to ensure our safety.
