NEWS AND EVENTS
Parents please be sure to check your FACTS account for accumulating INCIDENTAL EXPENSES (weekly lunch orders, emergency lunches, school supplies, and Before and After CARES charges fall into this category). Incidental expenses can be set up on autopay for your convenience. Note on Emergency Lunches – Please ensure that your child has an adequate lunch and snack every day.
Missing Something? Please stop by the Parish Hall and check out our lost and found.
Arrival Time – The school day begins at 8:00 a.m. This means the school doors will be locked at 8:00 a.m. promptly. Students who are not in their classroom or arrive past 8:00 a.m. must report to the school office accompanied by a parent/guardian to pick up a late slip. It is in your child’s best interest to arrive at school on time, so they can participate in daily learning activities. Our goal is to make every day a great day by making the most of every minute of the day! Please be on time!
Parent Alert and Emergency Closings – In our effort to improve communication between parents and school, St. Pius X School is using a telephone broadcast system called FACTS SIS Parent Alert that will enable school personnel to notify all households and parents by phone within minutes of an emergency or unplanned event that causes early dismissal, school cancellation, or a late start. St. Pius X School will report school closings/delays on television channels WTKR 3, WVEC 13, and WAVY 10. A Parent Alert message via phone will be issued and information will be posted on the school Facebook page. The Parent Alert will also be used to communicate general announcements or reminders. St. Pius X School does not follow Norfolk Public Schools.
