All classes are one hour and fifteen minutes.  Students should arrive on time and be picked up on time.

Students in grades K through 6 need to bring the following to class every week:  Religion Workbook, Folder, Pencil Case (with pen, pencil, small box of crayons, scissors and glue stick).

Students are not to touch, mark or write on anything that doesn’t belong to them.

Each week, a parent is to review and sign the completed chapter.  Teachers are to check the student's workbooks weekly and reward with a sticker, etc., if signed by the parent.

Never leave a child unattended in the classroom.  If the Catechist is not yet present, kindly wait in the hallway until he/she arrives.

Children are to be respectful and kind to their Catechist and each other.  Bullying and disrespectul behavior is not tolerated in our Program.

Cell phones are to be turned off and put away in back packs, bags, or pockets during class time.  If you need to contact your child in an emergency, call the Religious Education Office at 516-921-8543.  We will transmit your message to your child.

If there is a problem with a student or Catechist in the class, please advise the Director.

Absences must be reported to the office either via an email (abraun@st-edwards.org) or a telephone call (516-921-8543).  If you wish, you may mention the absence to the teacher, but you still must inform the Religious Education Office.
