POLICIES and GUIDELINES

for the 2021-22 school year

 

     This Policies and Guidelines document provides information about St. Louise School policies and guidelines and the daily operation of our school. It is important that each student and his/her parents read and become familiar with the information contained herein. These policies and guidelines supplement the Seattle Archdiocese Policy and Procedures Manual which is available for review in the principal’s office. Not all school policies and guidelines may be found in this document, and all school policies and guidelines are subject to change at any time after this publication. Please review this document online or look for written updates provided from time to time to see the latest version.

     St. Louise Parish School is a community which needs the cooperation of all those involved in order to help make the school a positive learning environment. When enrolling in St. Louise, parents and students agree to follow all school policies, procedures, guidelines, and regulations as outlined in this document and by the principal, pastor, and School Commission. St. Louise School recognizes parents as the primary educators of their children. The education of students at our school is a partnership between parents and the school. Just as a parent has the right to withdraw a child if desired, the school administration reserves the right to require the withdrawal of a student if the administration determines that the partnership is irretrievably broken.  This is a very serious decision that is not made lightly.

     Questions regarding policies or guidelines, or suggestions about how they might be improved, should be referred to Dan Fitzpatrick, principal.
