Welcome back to all of our returning parents and students, and we extend a special warm welcome to all of our new families.

Our mission is to nurture every child by providing opportunities to grow in faith, achieve academic success, and serve others as disciples of Jesus. We know that this upcoming school year will provide many opportunities and adventures for your children to grow academically and spiritually. As this new year begins, please know that you can always contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.

BYOD Policy for Grades 5-8
Our teachers and students will continue to have access to G Suite for Education (formerly Google Apps for Education.) This allows our teachers to collaborate with students and give our students more opportunities to learn in innovative ways.

In an effort to provide our students with more access to technology that promotes 21st Century learning through collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity, we will continue to institute a Bring Your Own Device Policy for students in grades 5-8. Please access the policy below for more information, including allowed devices. In addition, students must have a signed Acceptable Use Policy on file before they can bring a device from home or use any school devices. While the Bring Your Own Device policy only currently pertains to students in grades 5-8, all students in grades 1-8 must have a signed Acceptable Use Policy on file to utilize the technology within our school.  Please see both policies below.
Rediker Student Information System
Parents can access our Rediker portal to see student grades, assignments, and attendance information. If you are new to school and need a Rediker log in, please email kmartin@corpuschristiparish.com . If you have forgotten your password, I will be glad to assist you that as well. 
Reminders for Arrival & Dismissal
Please review the following policies about morning and afternoon carpool. Please follow the directions of the teachers on duty. They are on duty to protect your children and get you in and out of the parking lot as quickly as possible. Thank you for supporting the safety measures we have in place to protect our students.
Morning
From 6:00-7:00, Morning Care is offered for all students at our Daycare building for a daily fee of $3.00. From 7:00-7:20, grades PK4-2 are allowed to go the Cougar Den and staff members are on hand to supervise students. Grades 3-8 are supervised in the library. At 7:20, regular morning supervision begins in the courtyard and middle school classrooms. After 7:20, Grades K-8 parents are welcome to park behind the rectory and walk your students into school.  If you are dropping your students off by car, you must go through the carpool line. Students should not be dropped off in our main parking lot after 7:20. . These measures are in place for the safety of our students. Students arriving after the 7:55 bell are considered tardy and will be directed to the office to receive a tardy slip before going to class.

Preschool (K3 and K4) parents should park in the parking lot next to the preschool building and walk their student inside. Please do not park in our main parking lot to drop off your preschool student. 
Afternoon
We will begin dismissing classes at 2:50. All of our students (K-8) report as a class to the veranda area near the back parking lot for afternoon carpool. As in the morning, parents in K-8 are welcome to park behind the rectory in the afternoon and walk to the carpool area to pick up their children. Unsupervised students are not allowed to walk to cars that are parked on our campus in areas other than the carpool. As stated previously, these measures are in place to protect your children. Students who live nearby are certainly allowed to walk to and from school, but we ask that you please fill out a permission form. These forms can be found in the office or you may ask your child's teacher to send one home. Students who are still on campus at 3:30 will be signed into our After School Care program. 

Preschool parents have a different procedure for picking up their students. If you have a student in K3, you will need to park in the parking lot adjacent to the daycare and pick up your child. If you have a student in K4, they will be sitting with their teachers in our courtyard area. You may park in the parking lot next to the daycare and walk to pick up your child. If you have older students, you may first go through the carpool area and then drive to the courtyard gate to pick up your child. These procedures are different from last year, but we feel it a safer dismissal procedure for our youngest students
