Theme for 2022-2023 school year...
Important information for the opening of school
All volunteers must be Virtus certified.
To protect children in our Archdiocese,  ALL SCHOOL PARENTS and volunteers (age 16 and older) who work with or around the students at Curé are required to attend a Virtus Awareness Session and have a criminal background check on file. This includes ALL employees, coaches, religious education catechists, childcare volunteers, and school and preschool, volunteers. 
Drop off and pick up will be very similar to last year with just a few tweaks.

  • Family/Carpool designated drop-off and pick-up locations are still based on the youngest child.
  • We ask that parents not walk their children into the building at drop-off.
  • Families whose youngest child is in Pre-K through Kindergarten will pick up and drop- off in the back of the school.
  • Families whose youngest child is in 1st-2nd grade will drop off in front of the school
  • Families whose youngest is in 3rd-8th grade will drop off in front of the church.
  • You must complete a liability waiver if your child walks home this year. Waiver can be found in the back of the Parent-Student Handbook.

The complete drop-off and pick-up procedure can be found in the Parent-Student Handbook. 
The Parent-Student Handbook is now available online. Please take the time to review prior to the start of school. Thank you.
We order spirit wear from All Things Athletic. Spirit days will be on the first Friday of each month unless noted otherwise on the calendar. Click HEREto order spirit wear. Go Cougars!
