Estate Planning Seminar sponsored by SPSL Development Office

We’ve all got the List. You know the big picture stuff that starts at the top but slowly gets bumped because let’s face it, life can seem like a never ending race. Add the little humans we are raising, and it’s down right wild and wonderful.  One of the things that I’m determined to keep at the top of my list is making sure I have a financial roadmap ready for my children “just in case.” It’s daunting and a little grim, but I know that granting peace is one of the greatest gifts I can give them now and in the future.
I invite you to join Larry Sheehan of Ellick Jones Law Firm and myself on Sunday, January 26th  at 3pm in SPSL’s library to learn about creating your roadmap. We will discuss the importance of developing an estate plan while providing you with resources and the steps needed to start the process.  Granting peace is going to stay at the top of my list for 2020. Let us help it stay on your list as well. I hope to see you there.
Please RSVP to Bernadette.martenschapman@spsl.net or call 402.551.6667 to attend.

Updated Weather Policy Information

Recently, the Omaha Public School District, along with Westside/District 66 School District, added a 2-hour delay (10:15 am late start; doors open at 10:00 am) to their weather protocol. This schedule will be used when weather is problematic in the early mornings on school days but when the weather is expected to improve later in the morning, and the roads have time to be cleared. If the Omaha Public Schools and Westside/District 66 announce a late start, the Omaha Catholic Schools will follow suit and also announce a 2-hour delay (10:15 am late start; doors open at 10:00 am). Lunch will be available for Grades K-8 from Westside Nutrition Services, albeit a later time.

If these announcements are made, St. Pius X / St. Leo School will send confirmation of any weather-related closings or delays to our families. Please note that on any delayed start day, there would be no morning extended care offered.

Additionally, please note that with a 2-Hour Delay/Late Start there would also be no morning Pre-K classes on that day.

Lastly, please know that you can always do what you think is best for your child(ren). If we have a full day of school or a late start on a day that you think is too dangerous or stressful for your family to get to school, you should do what you think is best for your child(ren) and we respect that. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 402-551-6667 or at cory.sepich@spsl.net.
