This page outlines general information about school operations and frequently asked questions.

After-School Supervision

After-school supervision is offered for registered students who do not have available transportation. Teacher supervision for a limited number of students will be available from 3:30-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday on regular school days. Families must register their students for a full semester or full school year of after-school supervision at a cost of $200 per student per semester. Drop-in students who are not registered will not be accommodated. After-school supervision will be in a classroom and treated similarly to a study hall. Students may bring appropriate materials and devices to accomplish school work during this time. Email or call the school office at 573-635-6139 to inquire about registration.


Helias Catholic should be notified of all student absences in writing. If a student is unable to attend school, the parent must send an email to no later than 8:15 a.m. Any student who is ill at school should report to the school nurse.

Students who do not drive themselves to school can be dropped off and picked up in the front parking lot facing Swifts Highway. Please enter the front parking lot at the entrance closest to the Myrtle Avenue side lots and exit the front parking lot at the exit closest to Carter Street.
