The following is a statement from James Goodness, Vice Chancellor and Director of Communications for the Archdiocese of Newark.
Parents and guardians of every student at St. Theresa School receive a Parent and Student Handbook at the beginning of each school year. The Handbook specifically states:
“If a parent implicates St. Theresa School in a legal matter, or names St. Theresa School as a defendant in a civil matter, the parent/guardian will be requested to remove their children immediately from the school.”
Mr. Phillips agreed in writing to the terms of the Handbook on August 30, 2016.
