Saint Luke CDS Emergency/Weather Closing and Delay Guidelines
Just a reminder of our emergency or weather-related school closing and delay guidelines…
The CDS follows Montgomery County Public Schools announcements for unscheduled school delays and closings.
If Montgomery County announces a delayed opening the 2-year-old classes will not be in session. The 3-year-old and Pre-K classes will begin two hours late and adjourn at their regular times.
If Montgomery County announces a school closing, the CDS is closed.
Tune to local TV and talk radio (WTOP 103.5 is one choice) for MCPS closing info.
Also subscribe to the FREE alert service at www.schoolsout.com for Saint Luke-specific closing information.

In support of Saint Luke Caring Ministries Thanksgiving Food Basket Project
November 1-15, 2016
Families can drop off groceries in their classroom all week. Please see below for specific requests. Children will be bringing select items to their chapel gatherings on Wednesday and Thursday (Nov. 16 & 17) for their Thanksgiving Chapel. All groceries collected will be donated to the Thanksgiving Food Basket ministry and Food Pantry at Saint Luke.
This year we will also be collecting gently used books to be shared with families receiving food bags. We are looking for books for children from babies through elementary school.
Sorting of groceries and basket distribution will be November 21 and 22. If you are able to help on these dates please contact Ruth Manchester at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sharing our Blessings at Thanksgiving
Our contributions to the Saint Luke food pantry
The Saint Luke food pantry provides Thanksgiving baskets to families who might not otherwise be able to enjoy a special feast on this cherished holiday. In addition to these baskets, the pantry provides groceries to those in need year-round. We love to give out fresh produce and other fresh/perishable items but please note these items can only be brought to the church on Sunday, 11/20, or in the mornings on 11/21 or 11/22 to ensure they are fresh for Thanksgiving.
Items we need most for Thanksgiving:
Potatoes – white & sweet—fresh or in cans
Greens-fresh or canned
Stuffing Mix – bag/box Gravy – pkg. /can Dessert items (Jell-O, cake mix etc.) Fresh fruits such as bananas, apples, pears,
$10 Giant or Safeway gift cards for the Thanksgiving turkey
Items always needed:
Peanut Butter (regular type, 18 oz)
Soup One-pot meals (stew, ravioli etc.)
Tuna, Spam, Chicken (in cans)
Latino Food Items of any kind
We do not need cans of pumpkin or cranberries as the pantry is well-stocked with these items. Average sizes are preferred. If large cans/pkgs. are donated, they won’t make it into Thanksgiving bags but will be given at some time to large families or taken to the Shepherd’s Table.
Saint Luke CDS will be closed on Friday, October 7 for Teacher Training, and on Monday, October 10 in observance of Columbus Day.
