Here at Mission, no two days are the same. Students, who love what we offer, first experience it with our Spend a Day at Mission visits. But before they become fully immersed into Mission life, they need to learn the basics. Here is a glimpse of how to navigate a day in the life as a Mission student.
A: Uniform issues may arise from time to time. If it is an ordering or product issue please handle it directly with CKW. If a student happens to forget a piece of their uniform (or any other uniform issue) please see the Dean of Students, Ms. Padilla before school for an out of uniform pass.
Q: What is the school schedule?
A: We work on a block schedule; students attend each class for 85 minutes twice a week and 42 minutes once a week. Periods 1, 2, and 3 are on “Green” days usually Mondays and Wednesday. Period 4, 5, and 6 are on “White” days usually Tuesdays and Thursday. All classes meet for 42 minutes on “Plaid Days” usually Fridays.
Schedules may vary or change to accommodate liturgies, guest speakers, and other all school events. Please check the calendar for the most current changes to the weekly schedule. Click here to view the schedule
Q: How late can I stay on campus?
A: Unless it is a special schedule, Plaid days end at 1:30 pm while White and Green Days are a 2:15 pm dismissal. Depending on the day, after school time is utilized for teacher meetings, tutoring, extra-curricular activities like sports/clubs, and zero period classes. Teachers are on campus until 3:30 pm and the front office closes at 3:30 pm while athletic practices/games on campus end most weekdays by 6:30 pm at which time the campus is locked. Students are welcome to stay and take advantage of tutoring with teachers or study/work on group project at the lunch benches, computer lab, or in the library until 3:30 pm most days.
Q. What are the cafeteria hours?
A: Students can bring their own snacks and lunch or they can buy food downstairs in our cafeteria before school, break, and lunchtime. The cafeteria is open by 7:15 am for breakfast, break time with breakfast and snack options, and at lunch with a set meal as well as other items. There are no food sales after school. Prices range from $1 - $5.
Please see the weekly announcements for the featured lunch plate.
Q: What do I do if I am late to school?
A: The late bell rings at 8 am. Any student who arrives after 8 am must enter through the front doors of the school and report immediately to the front office for a tardy slip. The student will not be admitted to class without presenting a tardy slip.
A: Students who need to leave school early must bring a note from a parent to the attendance office by 8:00 AM describing when the parent or designated person will be picking her up and state the reason.
Q: What do I do if I am absent due to illness?
A: Your parent or guardian must notify the attendance office by 9:00 AM on the day of absence. Messages may be left on the voice mail of the attendance office. If you are ill for three consecutive days or longer, a doctor’s note is required.
