  • DISMISSAL ASSISTANCE: We are blessed at St. Dominic School to have a safe place for our students to be dropped off and picked up that is away from the streets and traffic.   We have a great procedure in place for those picking up students to join a line of cars that will pull up to the dismissal area for their children to load.  If you choose not to join the dismissal line of cars, you may park in designated parking areas on the lot, walk to the dismissal area, and pick up your child.  At no time may any student cross the parking lot area without an adult.  This is for everyone’s safety.  Thanks to those parents who have consistently ...
