Parents

Home and school working together is of the utmost importance to the philosophy behind our Catholic school. Many volunteer opportunities are available and parents are always welcome. Parents are informed and updated on school activities through:

E-mail announcements

Because the OCS system spans 4 buildings, daily/weekly e-mail announcements are sent from the individual campuses. These announcements feature upcoming events, reminders, birthdays, lunch information, daily prayers and more. “In the Loop” contains important information from the OCS Central Office.

Chromebook Insurance

Owensboro Catholic Schools is excited to announce a partnership with Seccuranty to offer students/parents the opportunity to purchase insurance for Chromebooks issued to students.  We have been working to establish a relationship with a company that would provide peace of mind for families who worry about the costs associated with any damages to Chromebooks which are the responsibility of their student.  Already, we have had several Chromebooks issued to students that have been returned with broken screens or completely destroyed.  A screen typically costs around $135 to replace while a destroyed or stolen Chromebook costs $250 to replace.  The insurance covers accidental damage, loss, and/or theft with no deductible.  Our negotiation as a school district allows us to offer this insurance for a very discounted price.  But you must act quickly since the offer is available until November 10th with no questions asked, and then from November 11th to the 30th at which time OCS personnel must inspect the device before the Chromebook can be approved for insurance.
