Can it be February already? Where does the time go? Permit me to remind you about school closing procedures in the event of inclement weather. First, if the public schools are closed, then we will be closed. You can tune into Channel 2 (WCBS) Morning News of Channel 11 (WPIX) Morning News. School closings should be posted on the bottomo of the television screen. If they are not listed, please go to their websites and look for the School Closing list for St. Sebastian School information. Please do not call the school. You will receive a ONECALLNOW message alerting you of the school closure. Hopefully, we will not use any “snow” days this year.
Congratulations to Aly Tantawy (Grade 7-1) who took First Place in the Middle School Math Bee and to Jackie Alvarez (Grade 8-1) who took Second Place. Aly will represent St. Sebastian School in the Diocesan Math Bee!
