School Year Calendars

Parish Information


In previous years we have encouraged students to read through our RDCRS READS Summer Reading Program. While reading is an important activity to do in the summer to help prevent summer reading loss, we have decided to make this program a year-round one instead of just for the summer. 

We are pleased to know that many of our schools are continuing to encourage students to read throughout July and August 2019. Some schools will open their Learning Commons throughout the summer!

Please note

  • Bell schedules and school supply lists can be found on school websites
  • Messages left on school social media accounts will be answered when schools open in late August
