Update to Academic Probation Policy

At the conclusion of the last quarter, the Fort Worth Catholic Diocese made changes to the policy for eligibility for student participation in athletics and extra curricular activities. To be in line with the diocese, we have updated the Academic Probation section of the handbook. Please find the updated Academic Probation Section to the 2017-2018 Student Handbook included below.

The first grade check for eligibility will be on January 15, 2018, and students who are not able to participate will be notified at that time. On Monday, January 8th, the students will be made aware of the new requirements for eligibility. We are confident that our students will be able to achieve academic excellence and continue to be leaders on the court and in clubs and in the classroom.

Parker Uniform Update

Parker Uniform will be closing its doors and going out of business. There is a plan for our school to meet our students' uniform needs. We will work with you to supply your child with items from our resale shop as best we can. If your child needs a different size uniform, please let us know, and we will do our best to find it in our reserved uniforms.

We will be looking for another company who can provide what we currently offer. We appreciate your patience as we work through this transitional time. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
