Middle School Scholar Drop-Off Locations
Parents, please drop off all Middle School scholars in the back High School door entrance in the back parking lot area. Elementary scholars will only use the front door entrance.
Drop Off, Pick-Up & Tardies
Drop off begins at 7:30 am. Elementary and MS scholars should be dropped off near the front door area.
Please move up your vehicle carefully but expediently so others can drop off their scholars and head to work.
HS scholars' drop off is in the back parking lot near the big glass area by the gym. Please stay in the car pool line and practice safety and courtesy!
School starts at 8:00 am. All scholars should be in their homerooms before 8 am or tardies will be recorded. We will follow the tardy and absences policy in the handbook.
Dismissal for elementary school is 3:00
Dismissal for middle and high school is 3:15
All scholars should be picked up by 3:30 unless they are in the aftercare program or have practice.
If any students are still on campus at 3:30, they will be sent to wait with a teacher. If they are not picked up by 3:45 and then that teacher is having to stay past their contracted hours and there will be an automatic charge of $20 added to your bill in Renweb. We are allowing a 2 weeks grace period so bills will not start being added until Mon., Aug. 29th
After School Program
We do have an aftercare program available for our elementary scholars through Daystar
Scholars MUST return to school with a NEGATIVE PCR COVID TEST! Rapid Tests are unacceptable.
Masks are optional for all faculty, staff, scholars, volunteers & guests unless they have been exposed or exhibiting covid-19 like symptoms.
It is everyone’s responsibility to provide their own mask. Please purchase a box of Masks for your scholar.
All faculty, staff & scholars returning after prolonged breaks such as, Summer break, Thanksgiving break, Christmas break, and/or Spring break must show proof of a negative covid test to return to campus.
If a person tested positive for covid they must quarantine until they have a negative test result to return to school.
If a person live in a home with a person who has tested positive, they must quarantine for 5 days and have a negative test result to return to school. When they return they must mask for the next 10 days.
If you have been exposed to Covid-19 and you are symptom free you may come to school, but you must mask for 10 days and be responsible for bringing your own mask.
