Among the changes around campus this new school year, parking has been one of the most noticed.
St. Francis Xavier Elementary began an expansion process that has required more parking, shrinking Brophy’s north lot.
One of the several changes is that students cannot enter the north and south lots via 1st Avenue between 7 and 8 a.m. Any student who enters through 1st Avenue will only be permitted to park in the auxiliary parking area.
School also institutes new attendance policy, parking restrictions in north lot
As a new school year rolls around, many rules and policies remain the same, but several regulations in the Brophy Handbook, dealing with student parking, attendance and dress code, have changed.
For starters, the administration decided to do away with buck-a-jeans and buck-a-jersey days. In addition, the “only approved game day attire” for athletes now is Mass dress or their jersey worn over a collared shirt, according to an e-mail from Dean of Students Mr. Jim Bopp.
