The majority of Holy Family Catholic High School classes do not require special supplies; therefore, we do not provide supply lists. Students may usually choose the tools best for them. We recommend students arrive prepared for the first day of school with notebooks, pens, and pencils.
Please see the following list of frequently asked questions for details regarding special supplies.
Do ninth-grade students need a planner?
All ninth-grade students will receive a school issued planner on orientation day.
How do I purchase the required vocabulary book?
Students in 9-11 grade will need to purchase a vocabulary book from the school store for $15. The books will be sold in the school store during orientation week, the school year, and at the outdoor back-to-school sale on August 28, 2020 from 10am to 2pm. For students in grade 12, the need for a vocabulary book will be determined by the English course of choice. Information will be shared with 12th-grade students during orientation.
The school store stocks enough vocabulary books to begin the school year with a few additional for those who may lose their book. It is strongly recommended that students write their names in the front and back covers.

What kind of safety equipment is required for Chemistry classes?
Safety goggles (along with your COVID face mask protection) are required for all Chemistry classes. They may be purchased through the school store.
What kind of lock do I need for my locker?
A combination can be purchased for $5 in the school store. We prefer students use these locks so we may provide assistance if they forget their combination. A student with a lock purchased from the school store may bring the code on the back to the school office to receive their combination information. The same lock may be used all four years.
If a student prefers to use a lock purchased elsewhere, that is fine. However, we will not be able to provide them with their combinations. It may be helpful to keep the combination as a note on their phones.
