Updated January 2023
School closings or delays will be available on the following local T.V. stations: Channel 4 (CBS),
Channel 6 (ABC), Channel 8 (CW), Channel 13 (NBC) and Channel 59 (FOX). School closings
will also be posted on our website (www.bishopchatard.org) and sent via phone, text and email
using the phone numbers and email addresses available. We will also announce school closings
via various twitter accounts including @BishopChatardHS and @BCHS_Principal.
When it comes to two-hour delays or cancellations, stakeholders will most likely be informed by 6:00 a.m. and no later than 6:30 a.m.
In the event of cancellation due to unexpected and unusual weather situations or unexpected events, the campus will be closed. Per IDOE directives, we are limited to utilize an e-learning day three times in a school year.
Students are required to utilize their iPad or other electronic device and complete course content in Canvas. The courses regularly scheduled for the in-person school day will still be conducted, only in a virtual format. Students will work through their school day in an asynchronous manner at their own pace and schedule, while meeting due dates established by the teacher. View the day to day schedule of classes here.
Students only need to complete course work for classes that fall on the date of cancellation.
What should a student do on a Snow-Asynchronous eLearning Day?
- Students will utilize Canvas for class instructional material. Students are expected to check every course in Canvas by 10:00 a.m., complete an attendance form for each class, and work through the course material at their own pace.
- Each teacher will post the attendance form via a Google form or Canvas Quiz on their Canvas page. Failure to complete the attendance form by 10:00 a.m. will result in a student being marked unexcused for that particular class and work submitted may not receive credit.
- Students are required to complete and submit all coursework as defined by the teacher.
- Student work will be graded and recorded in Powerschool. Work is due at the date/time defined by the teacher.
- All teachers will be available for questions between 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. via email or Canvas discussion board. Teachers will respond to student questions within one hour.
If your child is ill, please follow normal attendance protocol. Information can be found on the Bishop Chatard website:

Updated June 2022View Indiana Immunization Requirements from in.gov
Incoming Seniors – Class of 2023
Timely attention to senior vaccines is important, especially the Meningococcal vaccines.
There are 2 different meningococcal vaccines (MCV4 and Meningococcal B).
- Seniors are REQUIRED to have 2 MCV4 vaccines prior to the start of his/her Senior year. Note: individuals who receive dose 1 on or after the 16th birthday only need 1 dose of MCV4, per the Indiana State guidelines.
- Meningococcal B vaccinations are “recommended” for Senior year, however most colleges and universities require the 2 shot series prior to admission.
If your senior has not received the above, please make arrangements to get these vaccines and forward proof of immunization to BCHS. County Health Departments can assist with these vaccinations.
Submitting Records to BCHS
Your student may bring immunization documentation to the Nursing office, or email documents to email@example.com. Documents can also be faxed to 317-251-3648. Questions? Contact the School Nursing Office (Jeanne Agostino and Monica Meyer) at 317-251-1451 ext. 2245, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: COVID positive test results should be sent to email@example.com, not firstname.lastname@example.org
Timeframe for Immunizations
“Indiana Code 20-34-4-5 states that each school shall require parents to provide proof of student immunization status no later than the first day of school attendance. The same code also states that schools may grant one waiver for up to 20 days to allow students time to obtain the required school vaccines. Students who fail to comply with required school immunizations at the conclusion of this waiver period and who do not have a medical or religious exemption on file or other documentation indicating the immunizations are in progress are not in compliance with state law.”
To help prevent such issues, IDOH will be sending notices to parents of children who are missing one or more vaccines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. In addition, more information about summer vaccination clinics will be available in the coming weeks.
The Bishop Chatard High School school building is known to have asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) in various locations that are maintained in a safe condition with ongoing surveillance, re-inspections, and an ongoing operations and maintenance program according to law.
The INPEA is anticipating a somewhat contentious 2019 Indiana legislative session that may include challenges to programs important to Catholic schools. Visit www.inpea.org for more information.
