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. Any Student with a cell phone MUST turn it over and check it in with the Check in Monitor. No cell phones are allowed in the classrooms even in book bags unless there is a medical reason which has been cleared with the director. Middle School students (grades 5-8) should then report to their classes. High School students must immediately sign in at the check in desk if arriving at the beginning of the day or at the director's desk upon arrival.
Lower/Middle School dismisses from Padre Pio Hall at 2:15pm. 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. Teachers will release each student to their designated parent or approved ride.
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.
