Student may make-up missed classes by attending Life Teen (High School Youth Group)
Students who miss a Confirmation Class may attend a Life Teen night to make up their class. Life Teen meets every Friday 5:30pm - 7:00pm in the Salta Pastoral Center Gym ** Please be sure that the student signs in to receive credit for make-up session.
Students must sign in on the class attendance sheet next to their name. Student will be counted as absent if they sign in or out on a different sheet.
Pick up after class and/or Youth Group:
Students waiting to be picked up from class and/or Life Teen are to wait in front of the gym or in front of the Church under the awning. It is not permitted to wait on the curb, street or any other area of the campus. This is a great liability for the Church and it is important that students wait in designated areas. Parents will be called if student has waited more than 10 minutes.
*Parents of students who do not cooperate with Catechists and/or Sacred Heart Staff will be asked to speak with the Coordinator of Religious Education.
Please note: The Office needs written documentation signed by parent/guardian stating they give permission for their child to walk or drive home. If your child has permission to walk or drive home it will be indicated on the sign in/out sheet.
Service Hours: Students are required to have 4 hours of community service by the end of the Confirmation Season (Service Log due April 22nd). Some projects may be done as a group with their class.
