Below are the attached documents for you to review in advance of this lesson for your child(ren).

RE Traffic Flow

Please observe the traffic flow as shown on the map below when dropping off and picking up students for Religious Education classes during the 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. Masses. The traffic flow, drop off and pick up locations have been designed to provide maximum safety for our students. Please be patient as you enter and leave the parking lot when classes are scheduled.
