Parent Student Handbook
Dear Student and Parent(s):
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! We are indeed excited by the opportunities and possibilities that will be presented to all of us in the next ten months. Together we can build upon our exceptional educational environment rooted in Gospel values and the 300+ years of our Lasallian heritage.
Students, this handbook should serve as a guide to assist you in fulfilling your responsibilities as the most important member of the Bishop Kelley community. Through the efforts and cooperation of each and every student we can succeed in helping you to achieve your full potential. Familiarity and knowledge of these policies are central to this success and the creation and maintenance of healthy and positive relationships with all members of the school community.
Parents, your role poses many challenges. Adolescence is a time of great joy, discovery, and accomplishment but it can also be tempered by uncertainties, peer pressure, and sometimes painful experiences. You remain the primary teacher of your son or daughter and you are especially needed during these high school years.Your awareness and support of these handbook policies will contribute to your student’s individual success and help teach them more of life’s lessons.
On the last page of this handbook is a health/emergency care form and an acknowledgement sheet that the policies described in this handbook have been read and understood by both the student and parent(s). Your signature is your personal commitment to each and every other member of the Bishop Kelley community to work within this framework and abide by these policies.
St. John Baptist de La Salle believed strongly in the principle of “together and by association”. This too must inspire all of our efforts to fulfill the mission of Bishop Kelley High School. Be assured of our continued prayers and best wishes for each of you this year.
Yours in Christ and De La Salle,
Rev. Brian O’Brien
