Important Reminders Regarding Late Start Supervision 


We would like to remind our parents that on late start Wednesday’s, there is no supervision until 9:00 AM


If your child is on campus before 9:00 AM on Wednesday’s, they must be sent to Extended Care. If your child is accompanied by a parent or the adult dropping them off until 9:00 AM when school begins, they will not be required to go to Extended Care. 


This measure is intended to insure that all students are supervised and safe.



Uniform Guidelines for Cold Weather


During the coming winter months, we encourage students to dress warmly. They are welcome to wear accessories for the cold weather, but they must comply to the uniform guidlines as stated here: UNIFORM AND DRESS CODE.


Long sleeve uniform shirts are now on sale! Visit our school’s American Casual website page (available through Sycamore) to place your order. The deadline is Friday, December 15th, and the special orders will be delivered at the return from winter break after the New Year.


Here are a few items students may wear during colder weather:

  • Red school sweater or vest with logo
  • Navy school sweatshirt with logo
  • Red or navy blue hooded zip front sweatshirt with logo
  • St. Angela’s sweatshirt sold in Cougar Store

Here are non-uniform specific items that students may wear during colder weather:

  • Students may wear a solid white, navy blue or red turtleneck under their school shirt
  • Girls may wear tights for warmth, but socks must be worn over their tights. Tights may be navy blue, red or white.


No hats, no scarves, no boots.
