School Supplies

Reminder- each student paid a $200 Educational Tech/Curriculum/ School Supplies fee during registration for the needed consumable supplies such as pencils, paper, folders, etc… Please see the School Supply List 20-21 for additional items by grade that students need to provide.

School Start

The school start date will be the following:

  • On Monday and Tuesday, August 31 and September 1, St. Monica school will run two half-day (AM) programs to familiarize students with the new procedures related to this document. The student body will be split in half once we have more accurate enrollment numbers. Group Alpha would attend August 31st and stay home on September 1st, and group Omega will attend September 1st and stay home on August 31st.
  • We will send out the roster and schedules when all the details are finalized. Families will not be split.
  • These days will act as a “trial run,” where students will experience a day of school under the new protocols to identify and correct any problems.

Wednesday, September 2, will be our first full day of school for all students.

Uniforms

The St. Monica Catholic School uniform requirements are to be strictly observed by all students. The Principal has the final say in all dress code matters. If some unforeseen emergency prevents wearing the uniform for a day, a written note from the parent to the Principal is required. This note is valid for one day only.
We partner with both Dennis Uniform & Land’s End for our required school uniform. Please use these codes when ordering, Land’s End: www.landsend.com School Code: 900163767 and Dennis Uniform: www.dennisuniform.com School Code: XTM450.
Parent Club maintains a “uniform exchange” option and throughout the year makes gently used uniforms available at no cost.
