Arrival and Dismissal Times:
All students must be in school no later than 8:15 a.m. Prayer bell is at 8:20 a.m. Dismissal is at 3:00 p.m.
If your child is late for school, parents/guardians, you need to use main school entrance to bring your child in to the school building. Please report to the Main School Office with your child.
After 8:20 a.m., the library door as well as the cafeteria door is locked. Prek, kindergarten and first grade students must be accompanied in to school by their parents/guardians to the Main Office if you are late. It is difficult for children to reach the bell and open the heavy door by themselves.
If you have any problems or concerns during the year, please contact your child's teacher. It is important to call, e-mail or send a note to school to make an appointment. If you need to contact Sister Kathleen please do the same.
Remember to request from your child's teacher the "Excused Absence from School Form" due to a pre-planned trip. This is important to do, so the Main Office is not calling you during your time away questioning why you did not call in your child's absence.If your child is absent, it is very important for you to call the Office (215-639-3456) and leave a message. If your child is out three days or more he/she needs to have a doctor's note when returning to school. If it is one or two days, you the parent/guardian needs to write a note to the teacher.
This year, Parents and Guardians, we continue to use My Students Progress to send information to you by e-mail, phone call and texting. If you change your e-mail address, phone number or home address, please call school and let us know-215-639-3456. It is very important that we up-date our records and keep them current. Please remember to check My Students Progress to see your child's marks each week. Also, please check your child's teacher's website for important information during the week! Any questions or concerns make sure you are in contact with your child's teacher.
Please do not park your car on Kings Avenue at dismissal in the afternoon. All parents,guardians need to drive their car into the parking lot off of Hulmeville Road, get in line and wait for your child to come out of school. This ruling is for everyone's safety!.
Blessings of peace and joy,
