    Class of 2022 Families and Students:

    Last week’s news was tough to take.  Not returning to our building for the remainder of the year seems the most unnatural way to close out the 2019-2020 school year, but I am hopeful that our actions now will result in us being together sooner.  We will have much to celebrate when that time comes!

    I imagine that you have many questions regarding end-of-the-school-year procedures.  Dr. Calcaterra’s correspondence reminds us that we will have to act with patience in the coming weeks, but we will be sure to update you as we know more information.  For the Class of 2022, there are some specific items I wanted to address to help keep you informed.

    • ALP:  Please continue to work with your teachers, to complete assignments, and to participate in Zoom meetings during this time of Alternative Learning.  While we would love to have you back in a classroom, our teachers and staff are still committed to your learning.  With “hold harmless” grades, this is a golden opportunity to maximize your efforts towards improvement.  If you are having any trouble with technology or accessing help from your teachers, please let me know so I can work to find a resolution.  

    • Cadet Teaching Information:  Some of you may still be interested in cadet teaching next school year.  Usually, we have you fill out a form, get signatures, and turn the form in to your counselor.  If you did not have a chance to get your form filled out prior to Spring Break, we have created an online version for you to fill out so we can verify your eligibility and secure a spot in your schedule.  You will be able to find the link on the Lafayette High School Guidance Counselor webpage: .

    • Class Officer Elections:  We are delaying class officer elections until we return to school in the fall.

    • Fines and Fees:  Our finance secretary will be sending out an email to students who have fines and/or fees on their school accounts. These can be paid through Parent Pay Online or by sending a check to the attention of Kerry Philips, 17050 Clayton Road, Wildwood, MO 63011.

    • Locker Clean Out:  As mentioned in Dr. Calcaterra’s email, at this time, our building remains closed.  We are following guidelines set by our local health department.  When Rockwood leadership receives information on how to safely access our building, we will be sure to develop a plan and communicate that information to you.

    • Lunch AccountsAll balances left in meal accounts at the end of the school year will automatically be carried forward for students continuing in any Rockwood School.  If a student graduates or moves out of the school district, a refund can be requested. Account balances can also be transferred to siblings within Rockwood.  The parent/guardian of our students may request a refund or transfer by phone at 636-733-3252 or email .  Refunds will be issued by check from the Rockwood School District. Families may also choose to donate the remaining meal account balance to a student in need within our district by contacting the Child Nutrition Services office at 636-733-3252.

    • Parking Passes:  Parent Pay Online will open on April 27, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. to complete your student parking permit application.  Please look for a separate email being sent for Parking 2020-21 from Dr. Mehrotra and/or Kelly Mehegan.  

    • Ring orders:  I have been in contact with Sam Glennon at Josten’s.  He let me know that production of rings has slowed due to meeting health guidelines in the factory, but he is hopeful that all rings will be ready by the beginning of May.  Once he confirms that all rings are available, he and I will set a date for families to pick up rings at the Josten’s location in Ellisville.

    I miss seeing all of your faces in the hallway.  I miss hearing you laugh, talk, and get excited about your after-school activities and events.  But, times like these make us realize how grateful we are for what we have.  I am grateful to be your principal, and I look forward to the day we return to our Lancer home.  Keep your distance, wash your hands, and be safe.

    Take care,

    Ms. Fields

    On behalf of Sophomore Advisory, we would like to invite you and your students to support our "Gifts for Glennon" Toy Drive this holiday season.   Collection boxes have been placed throughout the school building. We would love any new, unwrapped toy that you or your students are willing to donate to this worthy cause.  The Toy Drive will run now through January 13, 2020, so please consider picking up an item or two during your holiday shopping trips.  If you would rather donate online, please feel free to use this link - - to make a tax-deductible donation directly to Cardinal Glennon.

    We are proud of the sophomores for initiating this collection for a worthy cause.  We also ask that you keep that “holiday spirit” ready for the sign ups/donations COMING SOON (after Winter Break) for the Sophomore Class Rock-n-Roll Bingo event!  If you’re out shopping and buying gift cards, buy a few more and hang onto them for donating for our Bingo prizes or if you receive gift cards you know you won’t use, please consider passing them along to us!  We’ll use them!

    Bingo planning meetings are underway and it’s not too late to join in the fun!  Next meeting is Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. in Room 180.

    Best of luck to our Sophomores on FINALS and everyone have a wonderful Winter Break!
