Your child's presence in the classroom is critical to learning and contributes to the learning of other students, as well.

However, we know that there will be times when your child simply cannot attend classes.  We ask all families to observe our policies regarding illnesses and absences as outlined in our Parent/Student handbook.

Please note that the Nurse's Office is strictly for school time emergencies and illnesses.  We ask that parents do not send a sick child to school for the nurse to treat and/or diagnose.

The official school calendar of the Diocese of Phoenix requires 180 days in a school year to meet the attendance requirements of the state education laws.  Students absent more than a total of 20 days may be required to attend a summer school session to progress to the next grade. 

Details regarding our health and absentee polices can be found in the Parent/Student handbook.  This handbook is updated annually.  For questions, please contact our school office.

"Our educational work should go this way to achieve harmony - harmony in all the boys and girls who have been entrusted to us; inner harmony, the harmony of their personality. It is by working in a hands-on way, imitating God, molding the lives of those kids like clay, that we achieve harmony and rescue them from the dissonances perennial darkness. Harmony, by contrast, is bright and clear; it is light. What we have to achieve is the harmony of a heart that grows and that we accompany in this educational journey."

~ Pope Francis (then, Cardinal Bergoglio – April 18, 2012)
