Daily Health Check Reminders

  • Only students learning on campus for the day should submit a form.
  • Students must submit a form the morning before coming to campus -- not the day before nor after they have arrived.
  • Parents, please make sure that only one form is being submitted per day per student to insure there aren't duplicates for each child.

For Students
School lunches can be paid for in cash or loaded onto the student's lunch account. Find out how to add to their account HERE.
Contact Cindy Merritt with any account questions.
Miner Block

Students and parents, please use the Miner Block Request Form to meet with teachers during Miner Block. Requests for the week must be made the Wednesday before; any requests made after that day may not be honored. Any requests that are not submitted through the Google Form will also not be accepted. This helps with contact tracing and ensuring teachers maintain small group sizes during Miner Block. Thank you for your attention to this matter!

Find more information about Miner Block HERE.
Picture Days

Make-Up Picture Day is on September 21st for all 9-11 students in the small gym from 10:00am until 3:30pm. Please wear a Bishop Manogue polo shirt and a mask. 

If your student had their picture taken, please activate your account to select and/or order a yearbook picture. Your student should have texted you a copy of the information the day they took their picture. For questions, call or email Lisa Guzzo at 775-336-6045 or lisa.guzzo@bishopmanogue.org
Senior Pictures

Seniors, it's your last chance to schedule your senior picture with Johnstone Studios/Photo House, our official photographer. Spots are limited so please schedule your in-studio session for September 8, 9, and 10 today by using this link. Select Bishop Manogue Senior Portrait Sitting.

Please note: A sitting fee will be collected for senior photos taken after September 10 and we can't guarantee your picture will appear in the yearbook. 

For questions, call or email Lisa Guzzo at 775-336-6045 or lisa.guzzo@bishopmanogue.org.

For Parents
Dual Learning Environment Survey

If you haven't yet, please take a moment to complete this feedback survey. It is important for us to hear your concerns, ideas, and opinions in order to shape this semester around our Miner Family's needs. Thank you!
How to Access Your Digital Books

Thank you for joining the Bishop Manogue Family! We are very excited to have you and look forward to the upcoming school year. Find instructions HERE on how to access your digital textbooks once they have been ordered from our Virtual Bookstore, MBS Direct. 
Virtual Attendance Code

We use two codes to indicate present students this year - Present or TEP. If you see TEP on your son/daughter's record, that indicates a day he/she was present virtually. This is still counted as fully present. It gives parents and administrators a way to track who is on campus on any given day for contact tracing and safety. Stay safe Miners!

Campus Ministry
Boys Retreat

Sign ups are now taking place for the boys retreat!

The boys retreat is September 26th and will be a one-day retreat at Manogue from 9 am - 5 pm. It is open to all grades and the cost is $50. There will be a special virtual guest speaker, Jason Evert, a world-renowned Catholic speaker.

Still want to volunteer during Quarantine? You can! Reno Alliance is looking for High School Students who would be interested in offering virtual tutoring for Elementary and Middle School students. Find out more HERE!
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.
