Dress Down Day- REMINDER

Occasionally, students may be permitted to wear clothes other than their uniforms to school. Students must wear clothing appropriate for an educational setting which instills the Christian values of MODESTY and SELF RESPECT. Shoulders, backs, and midriffs are to be completely covered. Jeans and shirts with slogans must be school appropriate. When a student is considered to be in violation of this policy, parental/guardian contact will be made. This means that a parent/guardian may have to come to school to provide appropriate attire. Please remember: Students MUST adhere to the above Dress Code Conduct. Decisions made by the school under the Dress Code Conduct are final and binding. Shoulders, backs, and midriffs are to be completely covered. Jeans and shirts with slogans must be school appropriate.

Cell phone policy

AM Arrival

AS A REMINDER:  In an ongoing effort to keep your children safe, please be advised, that your child is not permitted to wait by the school entrance doors before 8:05; there is no supervision before this time.  Please note temperature drops with winter season and other weather concerns.

Also, documentation of names of students will be taken, that are waiting outside prior to 8:05.  Parents will be receiving the necessary contacts home as warnings.  

After School Concerns

  1. Please note that after our 3:00 pm dismissal, all car/walker students are under their parent's supervision.  Any child left without a parent is to report back into the building. These students will report to Aftercare, and the normal fees will apply.  Any student that remains in the parking lot must be under parent supervision. The school will not be held liable for students unattended.

  2. Students/Parents must use the CROSSWALK.  We were notified that students/parents are crossing throughout the streets, and must be using the designated crosswalks.
