St. John the Baptist School is located at 116 Pleasant Street in Plymouth, Wisconsin. Take Highway 23 to the Highway 67 exit. Go south on Highway 67 to Mill Street. Turn right (west) on to Mill Street. Take Mill Street two blocks to the top of the hill, turn right on to Pleasant Street. (top)
School begins at 7:35 am. Dismissal is at 2:35 pm. School supervision of the playground begins at 7:20 am. Please do not drop your child off at school prior to this time. The playground is supervised by school staff members for a short time after school. Safety of the children is the parent/caregivers responsibility and students are expected to leave for home with their parent/caregiver immediately following dismissal. For the safety of our students, children whose parent/caregiver are not on the playground with them when the final bell rings (approximately 7 minutes after the dismissal bell) will be expected to come in to the school building and wait to be picked up inside the building.

There are 269 students enrolled at St. John the Baptist for the 2009/2010 school year with classes from 3 and 4 year-old Early Childhood through 8th Grade. (top)
The attire of our students should, at all times, reflect the Christian values being taught at St. John the Baptist.
1. Clothing should always be neat, clean, and free of holes, frays, or tears. Wind pants, tear-aways, jogging pants/suits, sweats, or warm-ups shall not be worn in the classroom.
2. Any items of clothing that directly or indirectly advocate a style of living that is contrary to our Christian values should not be worn. Therefore, clothing that appears to promote sexual freedom, suggestive language, the use of alcohol or drugs, and rock groups or personalities may not be worn. This would include any clothing that is form-fitting, low-cut, too short, or exposes the mid-riff.
3. Allowances for weather may be made by the administration but under normal circumstances, neither outerwear nor shorts are to be worn in the classroom. The exception to this is from May 1 to October 1, split skirts and shorts may be worn at the discretion of the parents. All skirts, shorts, and skorts must be to the mid-thigh or longer.
4. Jeans may not be worn on liturgy days. Headwear is not to be worn by students in the school building. Sandals may be worn as long as the sandal has an ankle strap.
Cooperation of the parents and students is necessary in observing the dress code. The administration and/or faculty will make the final determination on appropriateness and reserves the right to approve or disapprove any items not addressed in the dress code. (top)
St. John the Baptist follows the decision of the Plymouth School District in regard to school closings due to severe weather. Please visit the Plymouth Joint School District website, or listen to local radio and television broadcasts for school closing information. (top)
In case of an illness or an injury, the child will be cared for temporarily in the Health Room by a volunteer or staff member. Parents will be contacted to come and pick up the child. An updated emergency card must be on file in the school office. If a parent is unreachable and hospitalization is required, school officials will take needed action based on the authority of the parent signature/authorization on the student’s emergency card. (top)
If your child is ill, please contact the school office (920) 893-5961 prior to 9:30 am. When returning to school after an illness, a note must be brought from home, signed by the parent/guardian, stating the reason for the absence. (top)
Yes, parents are welcome to visit the school. Please sign in at the office upon entering the school. We do, however, ask that you do not interrupt the teaching going on in the classroom. If you are interested in discussing a matter with your child’s teacher or need to take your child out of the classroom, please contact the teacher or the school office to make the necessary arrangements.
