NEW Absence Reporting Procedure
Seton Catholic IT is proud to announce a new Attendance Monitoring system to replace the email system for reporting student absences. Parents will no longer send an email when reporting a student absences, parents must now report your student(s) absences from the ease of your Seton Catholic PowerSchool Portal. The process is very simple and just as easy as an email. Please read and familiarize yourself with our new Attendance Notification Process prior to the first day of school.
Attached is a copy of the Seton Parent/Student Handbook. The handbook can also be found on our website under Campus Life/Dean's Office.
Student Drop Off and Pick Up Maps
Click here for a Student Drop Off and Pick Up Map - Drop Off Reminders - Parents, If you need to speak to your student or they need extra time to get out of the vehicle, you may use the parent pick up spots in the south parking lot (see map) to drop off your student. Do not use the front parking lot for student drop off unless you need to visit the SCRIP Store or the Front Office. Lastly, do not use the parking spaces between the gym and the main campus to park and let your student out. Those spaces are assigned to our seniors students and will cause a delay with the traffic flow. Pick Up Reminders - The only place students should be picked up is in the south parking lot in the designated parent pick up spots. Students can walk to meet their parents at their vehicle. Please do not use the front of the school or the senior parking lot to drop off or pick up your students.
Students, remember to try on your uniforms to make sure they still fit! Don't assume you have not grown over the summer. Go to page 36 of the student handbook and make sure you are in compliance with the uniform policy when you return to campus.
BOYS - It is probably time for quite a few of you to visit a barber shop or hair salon. Please make sure your hair is not touching the back of your collar or the top of your eyebrows, cut to mid-ear, not too long or crazy on top, and is neat and well groomed! Make sure your polo shirts fit and your shorts are the proper length. If you are not in compliance with our policy, you will not be able to take your yearbook picture.
GIRLS - be sure to check your skirt length and make the appropriate adjustments to the length to avoid having your hem removed in the Dean's Office. Skirts must go TO THE KNEE! Here is the Seton Catholic Skirt Instructions Document to remind all the young ladies and their parents how to measure a Seton Catholic skirt that goes to the knee! Note to New Parents...this document is legendary so be sure to check it out!

Parents Help Needed

Is their hairstyle in compliance with our policy? Are they ready to take their yearbook/ID picture? Did they sign up for a locker if they want one?
