Policy on Absences
If a student is unable to attend a class, please give the office a call to let us know your child will be absent. Absences in excess of THREE (3) during the course of the year, even though they may be excused for legitimate reasons, must be made up by the student in special make up work. All lessons and homework must be completed as assigned. Incomplete and unsatisfactory work must be made up before promotion to the next level. Early dismissals are for emergencies only. If excessive, could jeopardize promotion.
The students are permitted to enter the building 10 minutes before the class begins. (Use back door only. Please do not use front door). Parents must report to the office (Room 116) when picking up a student before dismissal time. Early dismissal should be for family emergencies ONLY. If early dismissals begin to add up, you will need to have a conference with the Faith Formation staff to come up with a solution to the problem.
All students are expected to attend weekly Mass in addition to the special liturgies planned throughout the year for their level.
Parent/Guardian involvement is essential to the success of the Faith Formation of our children. Please make a special effort to be present at the scheduled meetings.
Our program is dependent on volunteers. We need many workers. Please reflect on how you can best help.
Class cancellations will be announced on the parish website : w w w. s t j a m e s r c c h u r c h . o r g / religiouseducation, News12.com, Channel 12 News, and the office answering machine (796-2979). Always check with the office before dropping off students for class on these days.
