  *    Applicable when an activity such as a liturgy or assembly is noted in the school calendar.

Helpful Hints:
  • Daily Order abbreviations, as included in the school calendar:
    A = Assembly; CD = Club Day; ED = Evacuation Drill; H = Homeroom; L = Liturgy; PS = Prayer Service
  • Homeroom (H) is only referenced in the Daily Order when all students report to homeroom.
  • Liturgies and Assemblies are examples of "Activities"
  • Reviewing the details of the day included in the calendar along with the Daily Order will help you determine the timing of the day for your son(s). For example, when the Daily Order says L - 1 - 6 - 7 - 2- 3 and the calendar includes "Sophomore Class Liturgy", sophomores will begin their day at 8:05 with the bell, followed by the Activity (in this case, a liturgy) at 8:15; whereas the school day for freshmen, juniors and seniors will begin with the bell at 9:15 and Period 1 at 9:25.
  • The Bell Schedule may change from the norm referenced above. Be sure to check the school calendar and/or Daily Connection for updates.
