Set Up Transportation Plan

Students may also drive a personal vehicle to/from Saint Joseph's and park the vehicle on campus in one of the parking lots. Contact the school office at firstname.lastname@example.org with your student's plan for transportation.
Watch Email For Information About Picking Up Computer and ID's
Students are given ID's and key fobs and assigned laptops. You and your student will receive an email about picking up his/her laptop and ID badge before school begins. Questions about the computer and ID Badge can be directed to email@example.com.
Get School Supplies
Students are required to purchase their own notebooks, pens, pencils and other school supplies. During the first week of school (or before) teachers will share a list of required supplies. Questions about school supplies should be directed to the student's teacher.
Check Out The School Handbook
We encourage all parents and students to take a few minutes to review the Saint Joseph's Family Handbook BEFORE the first day of school. Click here to download this important document. This document has lots of helpful information about our school and how best to take advantage of all it has to offer.
Reach Out To Coach, If Planning To Play On Sports Team
Many teams offer off-season opportunities to improve skills and get to know returning players. Further, student-athlete families are required to purchase some uniform items. Students are encouraged to reach out to the coach(es) of sports teams of interest, so that they are sure to be included in sport team-specific emails and text messaging.
