    Parents are asked to enter campus from Kessler Blvd., turn south on Crittenden Ave., left on Northgate, and enter the parking lot to drop off their student at Door 10 (Athletic entrance in parking lot). We encourage parents to drop off their student on this first day, if possible. This welcome tradition at Bishop Chatard is something you won’t want to miss!

    • iPads will be issued to students who have not yet received their device.
    • Orientation will conclude at approximately 11:30 a.m. for students who have already received their iPad. A 30-minute session will be held for students receiving iPads on orientation day, and those students will be released at noon.
    • Students may be picked up at Door 10 or on Crittenden Ave.
