ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Safety-First-scaled

As we drop off and pick up scholars at school, we need to respect our neighbors.  They have been reporting to law enforcement the speeding in the neighborhood, blocking driveways and blowing through stop signs.  All traffic laws should be obeyed on and off campus.

Arrive-Early

Plan to leave home sooner in the morning to get your scholars to school on time.  The closer you arrive to the start of school, the more traffic there will be.  Scholars can be dropped off as early as 7:20.  We do have a strict tardy policy and know that traffic can slow down starting at 7:40.  Please plan accordingly.  

REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR LUNCH!! 
NO OUTSIDE FOOD IS ALLOWED

No-Outside-Food

We have a large number of forgotten lunches that are being dropped off at campus.  Please limit this as much as possible and remind your scholars before they leave the house, to grab their lunch.  NO OUTSIDE FOOD (fast food or delivery) is allowed.  The school does not provide a lunch if your scholar forgets.

Friday-Appointments
All appointments including dentist, doctor, orthodontist, etc. should be scheduled on Fridays or after school.  Fridays are the perfect day since we have it off and your scholar(s) will not miss class time.

PHOTO ID REQUIRED

TO SIGN-OUT YOUR SCHOLAR

PHOTO-IDIf you need to sign-out your scholar, you will be required to show your ID and we will make a copy of it for our records.

COVID19-1

  • If scholars are not feeling well, please keep them home.  Please do a daily check before sending them to school.

  • Scholars who are sick (not with Covid) may return back to school when they have been symptom free for 24 hours. 

  • If scholars test positive for Covid, they should quarantine for 10 days.

  • If scholars are exposed to Covid and remain symptom free, they may attend school.  In the case of exposure from an immediate family member, we ask scholars to quarantine for 10 days.

My-Hot-Lunchbox

DID YOU ORDER LUNCH? 

HERE ARE A FEW REMINDERS:  

  1. Communicate with your scholar if you ordered lunch for them so they know to pick it up.
  2. If a lunch is ordered and not picked up, it will be donated.
  3. If your scholar is absent, cancel the order or contact the school if you want it saved, otherwise it will be donated.
