Dear St. Anastasia School families,
 
The health and safety of students and staff in our school community is important. We are writing to provide you with an update on the evolving health issue involving the coronavirus that has emerged from Wuhan, China over the past weeks.
The Archdiocese of Chicago has been working closely with the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) and closely monitoring the advice of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Please note the recommended actions to protect yourself and others form this virus are:
• Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water is not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
•  Stay home when you are sick. Stay home from work, school and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
•  Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw in the trash.
•  Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill.
If you or someone from your family experiences concerning symptoms, such as severe cough; rapid noisy, painful, or other difficult breathing; and dehydration, please contact your health care provider immediately for advice. If there is a significant diagnosis made by your doctor, we ask that you notify your school.
We will continue to provide updates and guidance as needed. You may
also learn more through the CDC at: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus.
 
Sincerely,
Ms. Denise Akana – Principal

St. Anastasia families, teachers, administrators, alumni, and community members attended the event which began at 5:00 PM with half-price appetizers until 7:00 PM. Prior to the drawing, the pot reached $1,645.00.
A total of three tickets were drawn. The first ticket drawn was number 1900 revealing the Ace of Spades under card number 4. Since the Queen of Hearts was not revealed, the lucky winner, Ginger Durkin, wins $100.00 for drawing her ticket.

The pot of $1,645.00 continues to grow! Tickets are for sale 2 for $5.00 at St. Anastasia Catholic School, 17 North Bar and Grill, The Tap Room, TJ’s Front Row, Quonset Pizza, J’s Bally Muck, and Glen Flora Tap and Grill.
