School Mass
It's a wonderful SJS tradition that our students attend Mass weekly. Parents are welcome to join the school wide Mass at 9:30am on Fridays*. Our faith community is enriched by the mentoring of younger students by older, by the joyous musical praise, and by the participation of all students in the sacred liturgy .

* Please check the school calendar as some weeks students will be attending Mass for feast days that do not fall on a Friday. Also, if the weather is not favorable, students may not attend Mass. It's always a good idea to call the school if you plan to attend the school Mass especially if it's raining/snowing!
Release of Students - Reminder
This is a policy listed in the student and parent handbook:  

RELEASE OF STUDENTS A note or email is required for a student to request permissions to leave class early. The note/email should indicate the time the student is being picked up and must be signed by the parent. This note will be sent to the office and kept on file. When a student leaves class during the day for an appointment, he/she must be signed out at the school office by the responsible adult. Excessive early releases are unacceptable due to the instructional time a student will miss. Please note: Early dismissal of students must take place prior to 2:45.

Students will not be called to the office until a parent signs the early release form at the office.  

This policy was implemented to both reduce chaos in the office and lobby at dismissal and to ensure safety for all students. Also, our wish is to not disrupt the teachers at dismissal so that they can fully focus on the students in their care. We appreciate your support!
