SCHOOL VISITORS AND TELEPHONE MESSAGES
All visitors must report to the school office. No parent or visitor may go directly to the classrooms or cafeteria during school hours. Forgotten lunches, books, etc. are to be brought to the school office and your child will be notified. Students in their classrooms must not be disturbed. Students may not use cell phones during school hours. Messages will be taken in the school office in cases of real emergencies. A student phone is located in the main office. Students may use the phone during school hours only with the permission of a teacher or administrator.
Each student is issued a picture identification card through the school. All freshmen and transfer students receive the I.D. card free of charge. If the original I.D. card is lost, a replacement card can be purchased for $10.00. Identification cards are to be carried at all times. Failure to produce the I.D. card when requested may result in disciplinary action.
Parking on school grounds is a privilege reserved for seniors who assume responsibility for compliance with parking regulations. Violations will result in the immediate revocation of parking privileges. 1. All cars must have a school-parking sticker that can be purchased at the school for $15.00. 2. All students must provide correct documentation when applying for parking. 3. All cars will be parked in the designated parking area. Parking in front of the school building is prohibited and subject to a fine from the Yonkers Police Department. 4. Entering and exiting regulations will be followed. 5. Students with parking rights MUST enter the school building through the main entrance.
The signal is the repeated ringing of the fire alarm bell. Quickly, silently, and in an orderly manner, students will leave the building by routes indicated by the teacher. Silence must be maintained at all times.
From time to time the student body assembles to mark special events. Honors/awards assemblies are held after each marking period when students who have achieved first and second honors as well as students who have shown extraordinary effort in their work are recognized. Other educational assemblies are held throughout the school year to help foster student learning. Liturgies and prayer services are coordinated and celebrated by the Sacred Heart community and the school Pastor. The spiritual and religious nurturing of the students is an integral part of their development and ample opportunity is provided for them to participate in the Sacramental life of the Church.
We at Sacred Heart High School take pride in the many special events that are part of our school year. They allow students, parents, and the faculty to meet with one another on an informal basis. The Back to School Barbecue is our traditional year-opener, followed by our Homecoming Football Game, Back to School Night, and the Annual Pep Rally. Our students participate in the Eucharistic Liturgy and Prayer Services at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Lent, and other times deemed appropriate by the administration. The generosity of Sacred Heart students cannot be exceeded! The students participate in the collection of gifts and food for less fortunate people during the holiday seasons. Sacred Heart has been many things to many people. A student who graduated from Sacred Heart High School remarked: “Every building has a spirit, the spirit of people who have lived there and worked there. The spirit of our school is more significant than most - for what happens within a school’s walls is likely to affect many of its students for the rest of their lives.” The sights and faces of SACRED HEART will live on in our generations of alumni.
