Before School

7:30 to 8:00 a.m. is the normal arrival time for students. Many working parents need to drop their children at an earlier time, so arrangements have been made for Falcon’s Nest to be open in the morning from 7:00 a.m. to 7:40 a.m. Any child arriving before 7:30 a.m. will be sent to Falcon’s Nest and a bill will be sent monthly.

School begins at 8:00 a.m. It is important that all students are in the classroom by the 8:00 a.m. bell. Parents driving their children to school are to enter the school grounds through the driveways on Holliston and drop their children off at the appropriate site. Parents are to pull their vehicles up as far as possible before releasing their children. Vehicles exiting onto Hill Avenue are to make a right turn only. Parents are not to park on Hill Avenue or Cordova Street to drop off or pick up their children before or after school. This is for everyone's safety. Please see the traffic plan sheet that is sent home in the August packet for details.

Traffic Patrol

The Traffic Patrol is provided for everyone's safety. Parents are to follow the directions of the staff and parents on duty. 

“Slow Me Down Lord” Auto Safety

Parents are asked to be extremely aware of safety precautions when driving in our driveways and parking areas. Drive slowly and cautiously at all times for the safety of all children, parents, parishioners and faculty. DO NOT use your cell phones while driving through our driveways and parking areas. ​

Dismissal After School

Kindergarten through fifth grades are dismissed at 3:00 pm. Junior High students are dismissed at 3:10 p.m.  Junior High parents or carpools are asked not to arrive until 3:10 to pick up. T-K is dismissed at 1:30 on Monday and 2:30 Tuesday - Friday.

Younger(K-5) siblings will be supervised until the 3:10 Junior High pick-up time. Any child not picked up by 3:20 will be signed in to Falcon’s Nest and parents will be charged. No student may wait on the street or nearby corners for pickup. This is a matter of safety.

Authorized Pick-Up

If someone other than a parent is picking up a student, a parent must send a note to the teacher designating who is picking up their child. If there is a long-term car pool, or a babysitter who will do pick up, parents must fill out the Carpool form to be kept on file for the school year. When we are in doubt about who has permission to pick up a student, we will err on the side of caution and keep the child at Falcon’s Nest until a parent can pick them up.  Notes must have a date and a parent signature. Faxed notes with the date and a parent’s signature will be accepted but we cannot accept an email permission since there will be no signature. 

Carpool Form

Parents may add as many people to their Carpool Form as they wish.  The school will release students to anyone on the Carpool Form during regular dismissal times.  For early pick up, the parent MUST send a note.  For emergency dismissal or in case the student becomes injured or ill at school, the school will only release the student to those listed on the Emergency/Disaster Card.

Emergency/Disaster Card

The Emergency/Disaster Card is used in cases of your child becoming sick or injured at school, or in case of a disaster such as fire or earthquake.  Please list those on the form who have agreed to be responsible for your child in an emergency situation.

Leaving School Grounds

No student may leave the school grounds during school hours without explicit written permission from their parent/guardian through the school office.  Should a student leave school grounds without permission, they will be considered for immediate expulsion.  

Parents must sign out their student in the office before leaving the campus anytime before regular dismissal. If they return during the school day, the parent must return to the office and sign the student back in.  


Kindergarten through 7th grade students must be picked up by a parent or authorized adult after school. These students may not leave the school premises without a parent or authorized adult.  8th graders may walk home with parent permission.  Parents must email the principal to ask for a Walking Permission Slip.  In case of emergency or sickness, 8th graders will NOT be allowed to walk home.

Parental Supervision Before and After School

Students are not to be on the school grounds unsupervised at any time.  Once parents have removed students from staff supervision, they must keep them under their close supervision. Students may not be left alone in cars or on the play equipment. This includes before and after school, evenings and weekend events on parish/school property. Once students leave school for the day they are not to return. ALL CHILDREN MUST BE SUPERVISED AT ALL TIMES.

Rainy Day and Extreme Heat Dismissal

Orange flags indicating an “Inside Day Pick Up” will be posted at the driveways. ALL students will remain in their homeroom classrooms. Parents may arrive in the classrooms to pick up their students fifteen minutes before the normal dismissal time.  Parents are to park in the parking lots and NOT IN ANY DRIVEWAYS. Parents will then go to their child’s classroom where the children will be waiting to be released by their teacher.  Parents will go to each classroom if they have more than one child. Falcon’s Nest students will be sent or delivered there at 3:15 p.m. 

Monday Morning Assemblies

Classes will assemble in Holy Angel Hall each Monday morning at 8:00 a.m. for the weekly school assembly. Parents are invited to attend the Monday Morning Assemblies and enjoy a cup of coffee with the Principal after the assembly.
