Dear Parents and Students:
I hope your summer has been a restful and enjoyable time for you and your family. In a little more than a month, the 2012 – 2013 school year will be underway. These instructions will ensure that your son begins the academic year on the right foot.
For the past few years, Jesuit has utilized the school’s web site more and more to communicate with the school community. I encourage you and your family periodically to visit the web site to learn the latest news about Jesuit High School.
To read Mr. Giambelluca’s entire message about the opening of school,
please view the Principal’s Letter.

Attention Parents: Review and Print
School Drop Off & Pick Up Procedure
Parents are reminded that when they pick up or drop off their son in the yard, they should NOT stop before or directly in front of the Traditions Courtyard.
Rather, parents must proceed to pull up as far into the yard as possible, past the Courtyard and preferably where the school busses are parked. Doing so will alleviate traffic congestion on Banks Street by accommodating more cars in the yard. It is also a matter of courtesy to those cars behind you.
