Christ is the Reason for St. Stephen School. He is the unseen but ever present teacher in our classes. He is the model of our faculty and the inspiration of our students.In this spirit-filled, safe and supportive environment, the dedicated faculty of St. Stephen School works closely with families to provide students with a solid academic foundation for their future studies and a solid spiritual foundation, based on the values of the Catholic faith, to last a lifetime. We want our students to catch this Spirit.
ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL
Most students arrive at and leave school by car. In the interest of safety for all...
Students are to be dropped off near, not in, the teachers’ parking lot on Hale Street and along Grafton Street where there is a crossing guard. In accordance with neighbors’ requests, students should not be dropped off on Caroline Street.
ON INCLEMENT WEATHER DAYS ONLY, The Hale Street Gate will be open and this parking system will be in effect for morning drop-off. Students may stay in the car with their parent/guardian until the bell rings at 7:40 AM.
Cars may NOT exit the parking area until students have entered the building after the bell. As always, vehicles must enter through the Hale St. Gate and exit onto Caroline St.
At Dismissal, as stated in our Parent/Student Handbook (page 8/9), there is ABSOLUTELY NO PARKING on Caroline Street at dismissal time. Also, vehicles are NOT to EXIT through the HALE Street gate. Cars are to be parked in an orderly way according to the Diagram for Dismissal on Page 10 of the Handbook. Please review, and share with others who pick up your children so that we can ensure an orderly and safe dismissal.
PRE-K ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL
Parents of students attending the Pre-Kindergarten may park on Caroline Street at 7:50 AM to bring students into the building using the far door on Caroline Street. Pre-K students should not be dropped off any earlier than 7:50. The street is also available for parking at 10:45 AM dismissal for students who attend the half-day session. Because the street is blocked off to traffic at 11:00 AM, NO ONE may park on Caroline Street for the 2:00 PM Pre-K dismissal. Pre-K students are dismissed through the far door on Caroline Street.
We understand that arrival and pick up times are busy times for parents. The purpose of these policies is our concern for the safety of the children at our school.
If you need to exit quickly at the end of any given day, please park on Grafton or Hamilton Streets.
