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 left in the car upon arrival. If a student is found texting or playing with devices, etc. during class, the device will be taken away and a parent will need to retrieve the item at the end of class time.
Any student whose behavior disrupts class will be given 1 verbal warning. If the behavior persists, the student will be sent to the office where a call to a parent will be made. The student will be allowed to return to class the following week, but if disruptive behaviors continue, the parent will be asked to sit in on their child’s class.
Attendance at class each week is extremely important as much sharing and interacting takes place within the classroom. If your child is absent please call 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.
We incorporate a zero tolerance policy here at St. Luke’s. Any and all threats, to person and facility are taken seriously. The state trooper will be contacted immediately if this is the case. A plan has been put in place if the building needs to be evacuated. Any student who is responsible for such an action will not be allowed back into the program.
