SAINT PHILIP PREPARATORY SCHOOL

A Happy New Year to all our Prep families! May the Lord continue to grant us His grace and blessings throughout this New Year. Thanks be to God!

Re-Registration. All families who plan on returning for the 2016-2017 School Year MUST re-register their child. Re-registration is an instrument, which we rely upon to guide us in developing our school budget. More specifically, enrollment is the single most contributing factor in projecting and planning the school budget. Registration will be on a ‘first come first serve’ basis. All classes will be capped at 25 or less. Classes will be closed when filled. Look for the large manila envelope in your child’s backpack the week of January 19th; it will contain all the information needed to re-register your child. Questions? Call the main office, 973-779-4700.

Catholic Schools Week will begin on Sunday, January 31st, when all faculty, students and families are invited to join us for a special liturgy at 10:00 at Saint Philip the Apostle Church. Please come and celebrate the beginning of this special week with us!
In addition, we will host an Open House the week of February1st through February 5th. Kindly call the school to schedule an appointment for a tour. New families may also register their child(ren) at this time.

Tardy students have become ‘the usual suspects’ in our school. It is plausible that anyone can have a ‘tough morning’ now and again, and ‘emergencies” are just that- however, the same students arrive late to school 4 out of 5 times a week!  If there is a problem kindly call my office, I assure you the utmost confidentiality.
Punctuality is a responsibility your child will have to deal with in high school and the workforce. You can model character and responsibility for your child. Arrive on time!

Alert Solutions will contact you should a school closing be necessary. If you registered via PowerSchool the emergency information will be sent to you via your personal choice (text, email, cell phone, etc.) The school answering machine will also have the information as well as, T.V. channels 4 and New Jersey 12.
In the event of a Delayed Opening, the school will open the doors at 9:30. First class will begin at 10:00.

Peace to all,
Principal Zito
