Corpus Christi School
February Cougar Chronicle
Dear Parents,
It is time to register your child for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. The entire Corpus Christi School staff looks forward to working with your child in the upcoming school year. We are committed to providing your child with an excellent Catholic education. In addition to the high expectations for academic excellence, Corpus Christi School continues to be a safe haven for your child.  We are committed to partnering with you to foster your child’s academic, emotional, and spiritual development.

Corpus Christi School academically prepares your child for a lifetime of success. As evidence of this, I can point to the school’s talented faculty, our Blue Ribbon distinction, and how well our students perform later on in high school. I am happy to report Corpus Christi School continues to improve and enhance the curriculum each year.

After reviewing the school’s financials, the Corpus Christi School Board has decided to nominally increase tuition for the 2019-2020 academic year by $150.00. Please keep in mind the Corpus Christi School Board does its best to make Catholic education available to all families. To see a full schedule of tuition click here .

The FUND IT THRU SCRIP (FITS) will continue. The FITS program makes a significant contribution to defray the school’s operating expenses. The FITS commitment to the operating budget is approximately $92,000. FITS is critical to Corpus Christi School because the cost to educate our children exceeds our per student tuition. As with tuition, the FITS program is part of your financial obligation to the school.  A description of FITS and step by step instructions can be found on the website.
Enrollment for 2019 is now open! You may now enter Educonnect and you will see a message allowing you to enroll for September of 2019. You will be prompted to ensure your contact, family, emergency and transportation information is accurate at this time. Your registration fee of $200 per student with a $400 family max will be added to your FACTS account on May 1st, 2019. Your tuition payment terms will be carried over from the 2018 – 2019 payment cycle. If you wish to update your payment method or terms you must do this through your account in the FACTS tuition management service.

A Note From The Nurse
Dear Parents/Guardians;
We have been seeing an increase in the Flu, Flu like illness and the GI bug over the past week. Please make every effort to keep your child home for 24 hours after the last fever and or diarrhea/vomiting without medication per school policy. Even though your child may feel better they are still infectious for 24 hours after symptoms abate and can pass this illness to other students and staff. Your child must be completely well in order to return and learn effectively.
Thank you for your attention to this matter;
