As a Catholic School, we are called to teach, to form community, and to give service. As families who have chosen Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School, we expect everyone to support these three goals.
When you register your child in Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School, we expect you to teach your child the truths of our faith by your daily example. We know that actions speak more forcefully than words. We expect you to participate in Our Lady of Lourdes Parish or the community where you worship. For all Catholic families, we expect you to be a part of the worshipping community by bringing your children to Mass weekly.
When you register your child at Our Lady of Lourdes School, we expect you to be an active part of our school community and encourage you to work with other families.
We expect you to support our school by giving of your time, your talents, and your finances.Your time: We ask all families at Our Lady of Lourdes School to contribute twenty hours of service each year, or ten hours if you are a single parent.

Parents/guardians carry the obligation of being the fundamental educators of their children. By choosing Our Lady of Lourdes for your children, you have asked us to share that responsibility with you. To make Our Lady of Lourdes School a better place for our children, parental awareness and support of programs and activities aimed at improving the spiritual, academic, social, and physical growth of our children are vital. Parental cooperation is also essential for the welfare of students. If, in the opinion of the administration, parent behavior seriously interferes with the teaching/learning process, the school may require parents to withdraw their children and sever the relationship with the school.
It is the responsibility of the parents to provide a Christian environment at home and make a commitment to the Christian community of their choice.
Volunteer workers are essential to the smooth operation of the school. We encourage mothers, fathers, grandparents, and senior citizens to offer their many and varied talents to help our children and enrich our educational programs. Before a volunteer may work in the school, a form must be completed indicating that there is no history of child abuse.
