Rules and Regulations:

ROLE OF THE PARENTS:

The primary right and duty to educate rest with the parents.  In the home, more than any other place, parents teach by their example, reverence for God and respect for the dignity of others.  They are also tremendously influential in cultivating among their children the virtues of love of neighbor, justice, generosity, loyalty, industry and honesty which are essential to their living the Christian life.


SCHOOL SCHEDULE:

Student should be in school by 8:10 AM.  All children go directly to their classroom.

Under no circumstances may Saint Anthony-Saint Alphonsus School accept responsibility for children left outside the school before 8:10 AM.

Regular dismissal time is 2:30 PM and 12:15 PM on Wednesdays.  Students are accompanied to the corner by a teacher and parents are to wait at Greenpoint Avenue or Calyer Street to receive students.  For safety and security no parent is to take a child from the dismissal line before reaching the corner.


LATENESS:

    Required presence in court
    Religious Observance

All other absences are classified as unlawful detention on the part of the parent or truancy on part of the child.  Removing the child from school for an extra vacation during school time should be given very serious consideration by the parents.   Teachers are not able to anticipate absence nor can they practically make up work with the student and all student are held accountable for all missed work to pass a grade.

In all cases, the school office should be notified by the parent before 9:00 AM if a student is to be absent that day.   Student absent without notifying will be considered truant and the proper authorities will be notified.

The parent or guardian must sign the student out before the student leaves the building.   This record will ne kept on file and is considered a legal document.
