Parents Club

Next meeting:

The Parents Club is an organization of parents of Holy Cross High School students.  The mission of the Parents Club is to help the students, faculty, staff and families of Holy Cross High School where ever possible.

At the beginning of the school year, the Parents Club along with the Holy Cross Ambassadors hosted the Welcome Back picnic for HC families.

On the days of Parent Teacher Conferences, the Parents Club provides a meal after school and before the conferences so that the faculty and staff can relax and enjoy each others company prior to Parent Teacher Conferences.

In December the Parents Club decorates the Holy Cross properties for Christmas and organizes  the annual “Christmas Project.”   Through the generosity of the Holy Cross community, the Parents Club was able to help four Holy Cross families who are experiencing some hard times.  Through additional gift certificates and clothes donations, the Parent Club also assisted in meeting the needs of additional HC families.

The Parent Club helps with registration for the Flying Pig Marathon.  Volunteers are needed for this 3-hour service opportunity that takes place a the Convention Center in Cincinnati, OH.  Please contact Donna or Katie (below) to volunteer.

Many, many parents contributed snacks, homemade cookies, fruit and various other treats for the Holy Cross students, faculty and staff on exam days.  The students truly appreciate the snacks that are provided for them before heading back to the final exam of the day.

Parent Club meetings are posted on the website and announced in the Parent Connection.  

It is never too early to start thinking about next year.  Pass the word about our Open House for students who might be considering coming to Holy Cross and their parents.   Open House evenings are scheduled in early November and mid-January.   You are our very best ambassadors please help spread the word about the great things that are happening at Holy Cross High School.

Parent Connection

The Parent Connections is emailed to Holy Cross Parents who have signed up to regularly receive communications from Holy Cross High School.  This is a means of communication from the principal to the parents that serves to keep the parents in the loop of what is happening at the high school.  Click on the various links below to see the latest editions.

Absentee Notes

School policy states that a parent must call the office (859-431-1335) on any day that your son or daughter is absent. For the safety of our students, it is also a school regulation that parents must send in a written note stating the reason for their child’s absence on the day they return.  Even though the parent may have spoken to someone in the office on the day of the absence, it is still necessary to send the note on the day of his/her return.

  1. Unexcused absences and unnecessary tardiness will be penalized.
  2. Detentions will be issued for excessive tardiness.

Please check the Schools Policy in the Student Handbook for further Clarification.

Lunch Box Information

Checks/cash can still be sent in with your student(s) to school as before, we ask that they take the checks/cash to the cafeteria first thing in the morning and not wait until going through the lunch line.

You have the option of depositing money into your student(s) account online by using your credit card. Remember that there is a $2 fee for each transaction; therefore I would suggest using this option when adding larger amounts of money to the account(s). Click here: “K12 Payment Center

Now you can apply online for your children to receive free or reduced-price school meals. Your application will be sent from a secure website directly to your school district, so you don’t need to worry about filling out a paper form that could be lost or misplaced. Click here: “Free/Reduced Lunch Application

We ask that as many students as possible place money in their account and as few as possible pay with cash. This will speed up the lunch line for all.

Finally, (high school) students can pay for A La Carte items with money in their lunchbox account or cash. Students will not be able to charge A La Carte items. If you do not want them to us lunchbox account money for A La Carte items please contact the cafeteria and let them know and they can make the notes in the lunch box system. If you have any other questions please let us know and we will help to get them answered.
