Pick-Up Procedures

Date:  August 23, 2019

In an effort to alleviate congestion and to best utilize the space in our parking lot, we are creating a designated area for picking up and dropping off students at our campus before and after school. We feel providing a space for parents to wait for their children, away from heavy traffic areas, will not only help with the flow of traffic in our parking lot but also keep our students safe.  

AM/PM Drop-Off/Pick-up: We are asking that you please drop off and pick up your students on the east side of the building (outside Guidance Offices) where we have converted the drive from two-way traffic to one-way traffic from south to north. More specifically, from 7:15-8 a.m., if you are dropping off your student in the morning and they do not take a zero hour, you should drop them off in this designated area. After 8 a.m. OR if you need to pick up your student for an appointment during the school day, you will need to pick them up from the Main Office. From 2:45 to 3:15 p.m., you should pick them up in the designated area.

Join Us for Adoration

Date:  October 27, 2019

Attention Parents: Does life seem hectic and stressful? Does it feel like you are being pulled in many directions? Campus Ministry and the Faith Boosters group invite you to spend time praying before the Blessed Sacrament in the St. John Paul II Adoration Chapel during school hours. For over 20 years, parents, grandparents and community members have prayed for themselves and our students every day school is in session. We are looking for more parents to be part of this important ministry. Is God calling you to be that parent? Contact for more information.
