Contact Information:

At a minimum, you should be receiving a Parent Email (called the Tuesday Telegram) each and every Tuesday delivered straight to your In Box. You will also receive other information directly from your child's teacher.  Please keep your email address current.

Who do I contact if I change my address, email address or am not receiving any information from the school?

How do I contact teachers or staff members?

School Uniforms:
What is the school uniform policy? 
The Uniform Policy may be found in the Parent/Student Handbook located in your student's agenda provided the first day of school.  Students have one Dress Down Day per month (the FIRST Monday of each month).  That policy is also in your Parent/Student handbook.
 
 
Arrival and Dismissal:
Where do I drop my student off in the mornings?
Parents are asked to drop off their children (grades K-6) at the east door of the school in the morning.(flag pole side)  If students are dropped off at school prior to 7:50, they are asked to stand in an orderly line on the entrance of the concrete until they are admitted into the school building.  Parents are welcome at any time, however we ask that you please use the east door and sign in at the office. Students are sent to their classrooms at 7:55 AM.  Class begins at 8 AM.

 

Where do I pick my student up?
In order to have an orderly and safe dismissal, it is necessary that students exit from the north or east exit door that is closest to their classroom.  All students from the primary annex will be walked to the east exit door by their classroom teacher and dismissed there.  Please do not park on the opposite side of the street or do U turns in front of the school.  School is dismissed daily at 3:30 PM.

Getting in and out of the school building during school hours:

What do I do if I need to drop something off during school hours?
Saint Dominic does have an automatic security system that will lock the building 15 minutes after school starts and opens again when school is over. If you need to visit the school during school hours, come to the east entrance. There is a buzzer next to the door. Push the button and give the person your name and proceed to the School Office to check in.
 
What do we do if my student will be late for school or has to leave early?
Contact LeaAnn Drevnick in the Front Office at 620-276-8981 if you are going to be late or need to leave early. If you come in late, your student must be buzzed in at the east entrance and check in at the Front Office. If they need to leave early, they must be signed out in the front office before they leave.

 

Volunteering:

What kind of volunteer activities are available at the school?
Parent volunteers are essential to our school community and every parent is encouraged to become involved in some way. There are many volunteer opportunities at Saint Dominic Catholic from assisting at special events such as Spaghetti Dinner, to volunteering to read with students or drive for field trips to baking for parties or other special events.

How do I volunteer?
