To Students and Parents:
Mount Saint Mary Academy Parent/Student Handbook contains information students and parents are likely to need to ensure a successful school year. The handbook is organized alphabetically by topic. Throughout the handbook, the term "the student's parent" means parent, legal guardian, or other person who has agreed to assume school-related responsibility for a student.
Rules and regulations are necessary for the smooth operation of any institution. It is the policy of our school to have as few regulations as possible. Most rules are not made until it seems advisable for the good of the pupils themselves.
No handbook can cover all situations. In cases where the handbook does not cover a particular situation, it will be the responsibility of the principal to exercise professional judgement concerning that matter.
We encourage parents to study this book with their child/children in order that they may more fully understand and appreciate student opportunities and responsibilities. Please sign and return the statement that indicates both you and your child are familiar witht the policies set forth in the handbook.
Let us work together to insure a safe and supportive learning environment for the Mount students.
