Student Drop-off & Pick-up Reminder
Students are to use door #8 in the morning to enter the building before school.
Drop-off is in the main parking lot by the gym at the entrance to door #8. No students are to use the Main Entrance unless they are arriving after the school day begins and door #8 is locked.
After school, pick-up is outside door #3 and door #8. For the safety of students and emergency vehicle access, the drives are to remain clear of standing traffic.
Drivers must pull into a parking space to wait for their students. This will help alleviate traffic congestion and make the parking lot and drives much safer for those students who are walking to meet rides or leaving our campus.
Students remaining in school after the school day ends are to be under the direct supervision of a faculty or staff member.
The academic area of the building closes at 4:15 pm
Students waiting for a ride after 4 pm are to wait outside the Main Office by door #1.

As American citizens, and as adults with a moral obligation towards future generations, we cannot stand idly by as history unfolds before us. As we approach the mid-term elections, Mr. Mike Longo presents the next adult enrichment course, America at a Crossroads.
The books that will be used in the course include Fascism: A Warning by Madeleine Albright and The Soul of America by Jon Meacham. These two authors give their perspective on where we stand as a nation during this particular time of human history. Along with the perspectives of Albright and Meacham, the class will be looking at the speeches and writings of Pope Francis as he addresses some of the social issues facing our world today.
The course will be offered at Resurrection College Prep High School and will be taught by Resurrection faculty member Mike Longo, Religious Studies teacher and Chamber Orchestra director, who holds a Master's degree in Music and Humanities from DePaul University and a Master's degree in Religious Studies from Loyola University.
