Is PCA nut-restricted?
- PCA is a peanut- and tree nut-restricted school. This means children may not bring nuts, nut-butters, or foods containing nuts to school. We understand that this is a bit of an inconvenience, but on behalf of the children with allergies, we appreciate your assistance. Please contact the Director with any questions regarding this policy. In addition, PCA encourages that lunches and snacks follow the fasting guidelines of the Parish.

- All children are required to wear white, collared or turtleneck shirts, or white or blue sweaters. Boys may wear blue pants or shorts. Girls may wear blue pants, shorts, skirts, or jumpers. On church days, girls must wear a jumper or skirt. Once a month the school has a “casual day” when students may come to school out of uniform.
