A hot lunch program is offered to the students through the services of District 6. Lunch can be purchased on a monthly basis. The monthly lunch menu is sent directly to current families.
However, this service is only available to preschoolers enrolled in the Full-Day Preschool, as they are the only ones who stay for lunch.
No, parents are responsible for the transportation of their students to and from school. Our families often join carpools to share the responsibility of getting to and from school during the week when coming from a distance. However, we suggest contacting St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Johnstown as they offer transportation services for certain routes. For Fort Lupton families, please contact St. William Catholic Church regarding their school bus route.
St. Mary welcomes students of all backgrounds, both religious and non-religious upbringings.
