Faith Formation Program Policy
We do our best to follow the Ellington Public School calendar as well as their cancellations. We will run cancellations on NBC 30 and WFSB as well as through email. Please make sure to keep all your phone numbers and email addresses up to date in the office.
Cell Phones and other electronic devices:
We are hoping that all students are here to learn, communicate and listen to their teachers and peers. In order to create such an environment, all cell phones, iPods and other electronic devices should be silenced or turned off during class time. If a student is found texting or playing with devices, etc. during class, the device will be taken away and given back at the end of class.
Any student whose behavior disrupts class will be given a verbal warning. If the behavior persists, the teacher may send the student to the office. If the behavior continues after speaking with the CRE a parent will be contacted.
Attendance at weekly class is important as much sharing and interacting takes place within the classroom. If your child is absent please call or email the office so we know they will be out. Also contact the teacher for make-up work so your child stays current in the class. It is required that students attend each grade level of religious education as they grow in their faith and prepare for their sacraments.
