LATE PASS - Any child arriving after the classes have entered the building must report to the office for a late pass. Chronic lateness is not looked upon favorably. Not only are classes disrupted, but a lack of respect for school policy and a failure to grow in personal responsibility are shown. Policy regarding lateness will be found on page 18.

ADMISSIONS POLICY
Preference for admission to Our Lady of Peace School is extended to children whose parents are active members of the parish, who are moving into the parish or have siblings in attendance. Students will be accepted if they reside out of parish providing there are vacancies. Attendance in the Our Lady of Peace Pre-K program does not guarantee admission to our Kindergarten. The child must be re-registered and screened. Acceptance is based upon the criteria stated above.
Non-Catholic students from other Christian Faiths are welcome at Our Lady of Peace School and will be accepted if there are vacancies. Children of other faiths are expected to be present for and participate in religious classes and celebrations since we do not have special supervision during these times.
