Early Dismissals

Attendance and Tardiness Policies

When your child is absent from class, please notify the Religious Education Office via e-mail with the date and reason for the absence. If possible, send any document to justify the absence.

Make-up Work

If illness or a family emergency prevents a child from attending class, parents must contact his/her teacher for instructions or homework. A student who misses a class must complete and turn in all missed classwork and assignments within two weeks of returning to class.

General Expectations for parents

Our expectation is that each family becomes actively involved in the Religious Education Program in order to model a living, conscious and active Christian faith and to reinforce the values and attitudes for living that faith. The parents and their children also agree to act in accordance with these values and attitudes.

Mass Attendance Expectations

You are expected to regularly attend Holy Mass with your children and family on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation. Mass is an integral part of your child's faith formation. Therefore, missing Mass is very serious. )

Mass Attendance Book Required

We use a Mass Attendance Log to register mass attendance.
