Parent involvement details We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children and that we assist them in that role. We use an online system for lesson plans, homework assignments, and grades so that parents can stay abreast of their child's progress. Communication about the school is frequent and through multiple channels, such as email, Facebook, back-to-school night, and twice yearly conferences. Teachers and administrators are available and responsive to phone calls, emails, and visits from parents.
Approach to addressing and preventing bullying As a Catholic school, the entire culture and ethos of St. Augustine is an anti-bullying program. We hold students accountable for speaking and acting respectfully toward one another. As a small school, everyone knows everyone and disrespectful behavior is spotted quickly and addressed immediately. There is no anonymity. If we learn of bullying outside of school, especially online, we work with parents to address it. Consequences have included expulsion if the bullying does not stop.
