Updated student handbook and policy changes for the upcoming school year
The 2015-2016 student handbook has been updated and is now available on our website. Click here to download the 2015-2016 student handbook. Each student will receive a printed copy of the handbook and a student planner on the first day of school.
You will notice in the handbook that we have made a few minor changes to the dress code. You may review the dress code policy here.
Also, the Catholic Diocese of Biloxi Department of Education has adopted a new diocesan-wide policy regarding cell phone and other electronic device usage. Students will no longer be permitted to use cell phones during the school day. You may review the entire policy here. Students will be allowed to use phones in the school offices to call parents if necessary. In the event of an emergency, parents will be notified by SchoolReach as in the past.
Another change for the upcoming school year is that we have added an additional lunch period; therefore, students will be served lunch quicker and have more time for eating and socializing with friends. You may review the bell schedules here.
We are looking forward to a great school year. As a reminder, final registration will take place next Wednesday, July 29, from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. and Thursday, July 30, from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Also, we will have an orientation for all new students and their families on Friday, July 31, from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. We are excited to welcome students back to St. Patrick soon!
