St. Mary's Handbook is intended to serve as a guide to help our students and their families come to know St. Mary’s programs and opportunities as well as to set forth basic expectations and agreements. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with the contents of the document, available at right. We are hopeful that the handbook will answer many questions you may have about academics, security, discipline, school rules, safety, athletics and other topics.

Students must fill out the following form to acknowledgement receipt and review of the Handbook, given out in homeroom on the first day of school.

Please note that no set of rules or guidelines can cover every conceivable situation that might arise at a school. The rules, policies and procedures set forth in this handbook are intended to apply under normal circumstances. However, from time to time, there may be situations that require immediate or nonstandard responses. This handbook does not limit the authority of St. Mary’s to deviate from the normal rules and procedures set forth in this handbook, and/or to deal with individual circumstances as they arise in the manner deemed most appropriate by St. Mary’s taking into consideration the best interests of the students, the school, its faculty, employees, and/or overall school community.

These policies, rules and guidelines may also be revised or updated periodically, even during the school year. You will be advised of any changes as they are made either electronically via email or by mail. Any student or parent with a question about any handbook policy or statement should feel free to speak with the Assistant Principal for Academics and Student Life or the Principal. The most up-to-date version of the Handbook will always be available within your mySMH class portal. Events that are postponed or canceled will be reflected at stmaryslynn.com/calendar.

This Handbook supersedes any other manuals or guidelines that have been previously published and any other prior practices related to the policies in this Handbook. All such prior manuals, guidelines, and practices are hereby revoked.
