Upper School Technology BYOD

Upper School BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Program

Beginning September 2018, in the Upper School only, students may use laptops and other tablets. The iPad continues to be a recommended device in the Upper School as many students have found it to be very useful. The iPad will remain the only device approved for use in the Middle School. As our students get closer to college, we are excited to offer technology options to make the transition easier and allow what works best for each individual student.

Volunteer Drivers

Volunteer parent drivers are needed in the Lower School

Throughout the school year each grade level will schedule off-campus trips that may require parent drivers. It is a policy of our Business Office and insurer that parents complete an application form and be approved to drive students other than their own child to off campus trips. A new application must be submitted each school year. Without sufficient drivers, some trips may not take place. Volunteering does not obligate you to drive unless your schedule allows. All applications must be submitted and approved by the end of September. Please consider becoming part of this important volunteer parent pool!

Join us for an afternoon of good food, games and fun for the whole family, as the entire Stuart community gathers to celebrate the start of the school year. In conjunction with StuartFest, this year we are celebrating a special bicentennial anniversary of Sacred Heart education in the United States. Our afternoon of service will honor Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne, a pioneer missionary of the Society of the Sacred Heart, who came to St. Charles, Missouri, from France and founded the first free school west of the Mississippi in September 1818. We will join together as the international family of the Sacred Heart to honor St. Philippine with a day of service in her name. Volunteers are needed to help plan and organize service and special children's activities including face painting, arts and crafts, balloons and more! Please sign up to volunteer here.
