ST. AUGUSTINE SCHOOL RULES (1786)

1. The school shall be open from 7AM to sunset with a two hour break at noon for

lunch and siesta.

2. Each student shall greet with proper courtesy first his teacher and then his

classmates.

3. The students shall come to school with all possible cleanliness, hair combed and

faces, hands, and feet washed.

4. The teacher shall take roll each morning and afternoon. If a student fails to

answer, the teacher shall send one or two boys to see why he is absent or bring

him back to school.

5. The school room is to be swept at least weekly by the students.

6. No student may leave the classroom without the teacher's permission. When

excused, the student shall take a ruler from the teacher's desk and return it to the

desk when he returns. A pendulum will be started when the student leaves and he

must return before it stops swinging.

7. Every month, each student will take a general test administered by the priest to

check their progress in writing, reading, math, and Christian doctrine.

8. The students must memorize the math tables at night and recite them in the

morning to the teacher. They must also read a portion of the historical catechism.

This is to prevent them from being idle at home.

9. The students are to go directly home from school and avoid shouting, loitering, or

pranks.
