2022-23 Early Childhood Handbook
Dear EC Families,
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Norwalk Catholic, Early Childhood (EC). We are looking forward to having your smiling faces back on campus. I pray that you were able to enjoy some rest and relaxation over the summer. As we prepare for this year, we want to pass on some important information to help you prepare your child for their first day of school. We are preparing for a more traditional start of the school year but we will keep your child's health and safety our utmost priority.
Preschool students should arrive at the back doors off of Baker St. from 8:50am - 9:00am for AM and 12:25pm - 12:35pm for PM class. The only dress code requirement for preschool is that students have fully enclosed shoes.
Kindergarten students should arrive at the main front doors off of State St. from 8:50am - 9:00am. Kindergarten students wear uniforms everyday unless otherwise stated. Uniform information can be found in our handbook on page 31. You can find a copy of our handbook on our school website.
Parents will be allowed to bring students in the first week of school. After that we ask that you allow them to be greeted by our staff and get to their class on their own.
You should have received an email from our Technology Director, Ron Forrest explaining how to access your child's email account. Information throughout the school year will be available on your child's email. If you haven’t received an email please call the school office for assistance.
Attached today you will find the remainder of paperwork that is required for your child to attend school at the EC. You can view our supply list on our school website. Our teachers are looking forward to meeting your family.
Please drop off paperwork and any supplies prior to the start of school or bring it with you to our
