SMHS Student Handbook
The rules and policies for St. Michael High School outlined in this handbook are the material condition of a contractual agreement between the school and the student and his/her parents/guardians. St Michael High School is owned and operated by the Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge and as such, abides by and is governed by all rules and regulations in the Administrative Manual of the Catholic Schools Office. The administrative team of St. Michael High School has tried to be as explicit as possible in its design, but during the academic year new and unusual circumstances may arise.
The principal has the authority to use discretion in making decisions regarding unforeseen circumstances, thereby, amending the student handbook for just cause. Parents and students will be given notice when such changes are made. Failure to abide by the regulations and policies of the school handbook by either the student or his/her parent/guardian may result in the student’s removal from the school.
Currently enrolled families are requested to read the Student Handbook carefully to insure a thorough understanding of its contents. Both the student and his/her parents must sign the contract, acknowledging that they have read and do understand this handbook, and agree to be accountable for and supportive of the rules and regulations contained herein. That contract, along with the Acceptable Use of the Internet Agreement, the Buckley Amendment permission form, Drug/Alcohol Safe Environment Pledge, Permission to use a student’s name and/or likeness on the Internet, e-mail information, and the Medical Information sheets must be filled out, signed, and returned to the school prior to the new school year. The handbook is on the school website and may be downloaded if desired.
