Frequently Asked Questions About The First Days of School
What time does school start? Where do I drop off my children? Is supervision available before school starts?

How do I know which uniform my child should wear?
Please refer to your parent/student handbook for a complete dress code. Basically, however, students can wear uniform pants, shorts, or skorts with their red shirts (navy shirts for HS) any day. Girls may also opt to wear their uniform plaid jumper or skort any day, but they must wear them on Mass days. Uniform plaid jumpers and skorts must be worn with a white shirt. All-school Masses, class Masses and prayer service dates will be published on the monthly calendar posted on the school’s information site, RenWeb.
