Grading Policy
As per the Student/Parent Handbook under Assessment and Grading: 
Students with an NC at the end of a quarter will be ineligible for any extracurricular sport/activity/club until the  missing assignment(s) has been made up.  For more information on Assessment and Grading, please see pages 10 and 11 in the Student/Parent Handbook .
Uniform Policy
It has come to our attention that there are non-approved websites selling Santa Fe Catholic clothing.  These items are not allowed to be worn on campus. As per the SFC student handbook the only authorized place to order school uniforms (including sweatshirts) is Risse Brothers. The two exceptions to this would be the items the booster club sells or those that a specific team sells (which have to be approved by the administration). One of the most recent sites that we are aware of is Prepsportswear.com. We have contacted the sites we are aware of and asked that they take our school off of their website. We apologize to any families who have purchased from these websites. 
Lunch Drop-Off Policy
For safety and security reasons, any person coming on campus during the school day is required to sign in at the office. Students are not allowed in the parking lot during the school day. If a family member is bringing lunch to a student please bring it to the office and we will contact your student. Additionally, only parents, alumni and siblings are allowed to eat lunch on campus but must first check in at the front office with a photo ID to receive a pass.

Please click here for the Student/Parent Handbook for visitor's policy.
