This handbook is available to you so you can have a more complete knowledge and understanding of what this school is all about. It has this year once again been revised and updated as it has every year. So please, even if you have think you know all its contents, take the time to read the entire book. As parents, you deserve to have a thorough knowledge of what this school, OUR SCHOOL, is all about.
This book is only an overview. There may be times when we need to amend, explain or add to what is presented here. In those cases we will let you know. Remember, we are a dynamic institution – always reviewing and evaluating; always looking to get better when ever we feel it is necessary.
Keep in mind that unexpected situations do arise. For this reason, you need to know that the administration, as per Archdiocesan policy, has the right and the authority to amend, waive and/or adjust policies and/or rules if deemed necessary.
Our policies and procedures emanate from the Archdiocese of Hartford Handbook of Policies and procedures for Catholic Schools. When possible, we have tried to include references, sometimes exact quotes, from that Handbook so you are aware of what is Archdiocesan policy.
Please especially note what is included regarding communications. Good communication is crucially important. You, as parents, need to work with us to be sure the communication pipeline is flowing — constantly — in both directions.
NOTE: We plan to continue and increase our use of email to handle much of our school to home communications. So, please check for messages from firstname.lastname@example.org, from where such emails will come, and be sure your computer accept emails from this address and that you keep us informed of any changes regarding your email, phone or postal address.
Above all, know that your children and you are always in our prayers. We ask that you keep us in yours.
May God bless you!
Mr. Frank Lacerenza, Principal
