No School Monday
Appropriate Dress & Uniform
We had temperatures that dropped down into the negative “feels like” recently, yet many students came to school with bare legs and no jacket. Please make sure your child is properly dressed for the cold weather. That means leggings, long pants, and coats. While we do not have outdoor recess when the “feels like” temperature is below freezing, you never know when there could be a reason for students to be outside for extended periods of time (think dismissal, fire drills, etc). Frostbite can happen in minutes, depending on the weather conditions.
This semester we will be cracking down on dress code violations. Too short of a skirt or shorts? Time to get replacements. Socks with designs, colors, logos, or no-show? Time to buy a bulk supply that fits the dress code. Leave the makeup, nail polish and non-compliant jewelry at home. Belts are required with pants/shorts unless your child is in Kindergarten or 1st grade. After a verbal warning, students will receive infractions that will eventually result in loss of privilege. See the handbook for details about the dress code.
Registration and Re-Enrollment for 2022-23 Coming Soon
Registration for enrolling our current Eagles is just around the corner! Families will receive enrollment information by mid-week.
New student application window is OPEN! Siblings of current students should apply at this time to receive preference in the review process. ALL new applications must be completed and submitted online with a $25 application fee. We will begin reviewing applications for new students in late February, and send notification upon acceptance.
If you have friends and family who may be interested in sending their students to St. Eugene, tell them what you love about our school! They may visit our Admissions page and fill out an application or inquiry to schedule a tour with our Eagle Ambassador. Don’t forget that if you successfully refer a new family, you may be eligible for a tuition credit. Details coming soon.
