Virtual Attendance
If you log in late to class on a virtual day, please make sure your teacher knows you are present by either a comment in the chat area or verbally notifying them that you've arrived. 

If a teacher is in the middle of a lesson and a virtual student logs on without letting them know, that student might accidentally be marked as absent.

Thank you!
Make-up Picture Day
Make-up picture day is on September 21st from 10:00am until about 3:30pm in the small gym. This is for ALL 9-11 students on campus or virtual who haven't taken a school picture. If you are not on campus, and need a picture taken, you must come to campus as soon as school is released. Remember to wear a Bishop Manogue polo shirt. Please email Lisa Guzzo if your student will need their picture taken or if you have questions. This is the final day the photographer will be on campus. 

For Parents
Choosing Virtual During On-Campus Days

Thank you for being so supportive of our policies and keeping your students home when there is the potential for illness. We GREATLY appreciate it! As we enter cold/flu season and just plain TIRED season, we are seeing our numbers of students who choose to be virtual even on their on-campus days increase. If you could please let us know your child is going to be virtual during their on-campus day, that would be a tremendous help in our tracking. Before, we were able to make all of the calls to verify if parents knew their child was TEP (Virtually Present). With our increasing numbers, we are unable to do that as efficiently as we were in the first weeks. You can either call 775-336-6020 and leave a message or email attendance@bishopmanogue.org.

Thank you so much!

Service Hours
Parents

School Lunches
We need parent volunteers for school lunches! Volunteers will need to undergo COVID-19 training and contact Bonnie Hansen at (775)336-6000 or Greg at (775)336-6098 to confirm availability.
Remember, the Diocese of Reno has mandatory requirements for volunteering at all Diocesan schools, including Bishop Manogue, and you cannot earn service hours until those requirements have been met. Contact Bonnie Hansen at  bonnie.hansen@bishopmanogue.org  or 775-336-6000 with questions.

Parents will have to enroll in Protecting God's Children through Virtus and stay up to date on monthly bulletins for two years. After the two years, you have completed all the necessary bulletins. This transfers over from any of the Diocesan schools. If you are still receiving bulletins after two complete years, contact Elda Juarez at  eldaj@catholicreno.org  to be removed from the update list.
