Campus Security: Pick-up and Drop-off Procedures
Please take note of these important procedures for picking-up and dropping-off during the school day.

If you need to pick-up or drop-off an item for your son during the school day, please do so on Jacob Lane through the Dean’s Office, and not from the Fair Oaks entrance near the Gym/Harris Center area. Our Campus Security Team works hard to identify people who are coming onto campus during the course of the school day and your attention to this drop-off/pick-up procedure will help them to maintain the safety of everyone on campus. If you would like to have your son come out to the car to pick-up an item so that you do not have to get out of the car, please have him check

Closed Campus
Jesuit High School remains a closed campus during the course of the school day

It is our expectation that students will not switch from on-campus learning to distance learning (or vice versa) during the course of the day without a parent notifying the Dean’s Office. Any student who needs to leave campus early or arrive on campus late for any reason should have a parent/guardian leave a message for the Dean’s Office through the attendance line. This communication is critical for the Dean’s Office to maintain accurate attendance records for all students that are present on campus.

7 Principles of Constructive Dialogue
Framework for respectful conversations for our community

Taken from the updated Faculty Handbook (Appendix E-7 Principles of Constructive Dialogue)

To guide our conversations, all members of our community will commit to following the 7 Principles of Constructive Dialogue. These Principles will provide the framework for respectful conversations so we may all learn and grow from each other’s insights and perspectives.

  1. Presume good intentions
    If someone says something you disagree with or which you don’t understand, assume that the person has good intent. Ask questions and seek first to clarify, not to disregard the comment. St. Ignatius of Loyola reminds us that we should be “more ready to put a good interpretation on another’s statement than to condemn it as false.”
  2. Use “I” statements
    Your experience is true for you, but it may not be universal. Speak about your experiences and things that are true for you. Use statements that begin with “I think that…,” “I feel….,” or “It seems to me….” Avoid statements that begin with “You know how you…..,” “We all believe….,” or “Everyone knows…..” 
  3. Understand that the speaker’s experience is valid for him/her
    Although an individual’s experience may be different than yours, that doesn’t make it any less

A Parent’s Prayer

I pray that I may let my child live his own life and not the one I wish I had lived.  Therefore, guard me against burdening him with doing what I failed to do. 

Help me to see his missteps today in perspective against the long road he must travel, and grant me the grace to be patient with his sometimes slow pace. 

Give me the wisdom to know when to smile at the small mischiefs of his age and when to show firmness against the impulses he fears and cannot handle.
