Students should come to school each day with a healthy lunch and drink following our peanut free policy. Approximately one half hour is allotted each day for lunch and recess. For safety reasons, containers and bottles brought to school should not be made of glass.
If you would like your child to eat the lunch you have provided for them, please make it clear to your child that they should not trade lunches with other students. Students will not have use of kitchen facilities (microwave, refrigerator) so please keep this in mind when you are packing your child's lunch.
* non-breakable water bottles are permitted during class time
PEANUT FREE POLICY
Students are asked to bring lunches and snacks free of peanuts and products that may contain peanuts, such as donuts, granola bars, etc. We ask you to read food labels, checking for peanut ingredients prior to sending food to school. This is a life saving measure.
A parent must escort their Lower School child (grades K-4) to their classroom beginning after morning Mass, no earlier than 9:10am. Please make sure a teacher is present before leaving your child.
Middle School/High School
Middle and High School students (grades 5-12) may enter Father Ruehl Hall unescorted. Middle School students (grades 5-8) should report to their classes upon arrival. High School students should immediately sign in at the director's desk upon arrival.
Lower School dismisses from Padre Pio Hall at 1:30pm (2:15pm beginning in the 2022/23 school year). Be sure to arrive on time for dismissal. All children will be dismissed from the back door of Padre Pio Hall. No children may leave from the front door. Students will be picked up at the back door of PPH. Teachers will release each student to their designated parent or approved ride.
Middle School/High School
Middle school students with siblings in Padre Pio Hall will be accompanied by a teacher to PPH at dismissal to be picked up there. Middle School students who do not have siblings in PPH are to be picked up outside of the church at the turnaround on Luray Ave.
High school students are dismissed after their last class. High school students should be picked up no more than 10 minutes after their last class outside of the church at the turnaround on Luray Ave.
