The Cathedral Prep Ramblers football team plays in the state championship game next Thursday, December 7th beginning at 7:00 PM in Hershey. Because of the importance of this game, the large number of students who have already indicated that they want to attend the game, and the difference that strong student fan support can make, the school wants to provide an opportunity for all of our students to travel to Hershey to cheer our team on to victory.the following schedule changes are being made:
Wednesday, December 6th, will not be an early dismissal but will instead follow a special schedule for a full day of school, with dismissal at the regular 3:05 PM dismissal time.
Thursday, December 7th will follow a special schedule (to be issued soon) with an early dismissal for the entire school for those in attendance that day.
Friday, December 8th: Because of the expected late return of the student fan buses early in the morning on Friday, December 8th, students who go to the game on the bus are not required to attend school on Friday, December 8th. Since it is the feast of the Immaculate Conception, Mass will be held at both campuses. Therefore, December 8th will follow a special schedule (to be issued) for those who attend school that day. Students who plan to go to the game but will not be traveling on the student fan bus (e.g., traveling with their parents) likewise are not required to attend school on Friday, December 8th, BUT they are required to provide a signed parent permission to the school by 9:00 AM on Thursday, December 7th.
Random checks will be made to families to ensure that parent permissions for the game are authentic. Also, attendance will be taken at the football game in Hershey for all students who go to the game, regardless of how they travel to the game.
NOTE: students who do NOT go to the football game on Thursday, December 7th are required to attend a full regular day of school on Friday, December 8th.
We wish the Cathedral Prep Football Team the best of luck and skill as they compete in the state championship game this Thursday.
