THE WEEK AHEAD!

Parking Lot Procedures

Please review our Parking Lot Procedures for drop off and pick up. Follow the link for diagrams and detailed explanations.

Special Note: The only cars that are allowed to park on the Park Avenue apron at pickup time are those retrieving Preschoolers ONLY. Preschool is released 20 minutes earlier than the rest of the school, so those families can vacate before the rest of the children fill the lot. Therefore, those picking up older children in addition to a preschooler should enter the lot, retrieve their little one, and then wait in line for the older children to dismiss with everyone else. Likewise, there should be NO cars parked on Chicago Avenue or in our teacher lot for pickup.

Our policies are in place to protect the children, the parents, our parking lot monitors, and your cars. Our dismissal is very streamlined and does not take very long. We ask our students to follow rules every day. Please lead by example and follow the rules when you drop them off/pick them up. Let's have a safe and happy year! Thank you!

Dress Code Reminders

We understand that our uniform supplier fell behind in filling some of our families' orders for this fall and apologize for any inconvenience. The good news is that the children are allowed to continue wearing gym uniforms daily until September 15, so those who are missing formal uniform pieces will not feel out of place. We do ask though that if you are sending your child to school in temporary substitutions, please adhere to our other Dress Code policy rules. Pants and shorts should be "uniform" styled and worn with a belt: no cargo or skinny versions. Shirts should be tucked in neatly. Shoes must be entirely black (colorful or white gym shoes are acceptable only with the gym uniform).

Weekly School Masses

We attend Mass together as a school community every Wednesday morning in the Church at 9:00 a.m. On the last Wednesday of every month, there is also the option of spending time in the Chapel for Eucharistic Adoration. Please join us any time!
