If you need to make a change in the day or time of the class you must come to the office to request it. The requests by phone or fax will not be accepted.
- The Religious Formation Office will call the student home after three consecutive absences, and after four consecutive unexcused absences, the student will be removed from the lists of attendance.
- Students are expected to be on time for class. If a student is late more than ten minutes, he/she is to report to the office for a tardy slip so we may keep an accurate record of absences.
If the Carrollton-Farmers Branch School District cancels the classes because of inclement weather, there will not be classes of Religious Formation.
