SAINT CATHERINE OF SIENA SCHOOL HOURS Many of our students commute from towns other than Norwood and we understand that delays may occasionally occur where a child may be tardy for school. We do encourage children to be to school on time so they can settle in and start the day on a positive note. Although the school day begins at 7:50 a.m., the children begin to assemble for morning prayer at 7:45 a.m. It is best to get your children to school by the 7:40 a.m. bell.
