Commonly Asked Questions
What happens if my child looses his/her book?
We will have an extra book in each classroom for a student without a book to use while you look around for the book. If you don’t find it, replacement fees are as follows: Grades 1-7 workbooks are $18 to replace. Grades 8–10 are $28 for the Catholic Youth Bible and $20 for the text.
My child did not attend Religious Education in the 1st grade, can he/she still receive First Communion?
You will need to check in with Jo-Ann. Special arrangements may need to be made to make up missed first grade work.
My child did not attend Religious Education in Middle and High School, can he/she still be confirmed?
You will need to check in with Jo-Ann. Special arrangements may need to be made to make up missed work.
How will you let me know if Religious Education is cancelled because of inclement weather?
Weather cancellations will be posted on News Channel 40. An email will be sent that Sunday morning by 7 a.m.
I like to drop my child off in the parking lot and let them get to class on their own. What is your policy on that?
All children have different abilities. Newman is an open building. Folks can walk in and out as they please. I recommend that you walk your children to class unless you feel your child is old enough to be in a public place alone. Walking with your child to class also helps in case there is a change in plan with the class.
