For learning to occur, attendance is necessary; therefore, all children enrolled in school are expected to be present when school is in session. The school day begins promptly at 8:15 a.m. each day, Monday through Friday. Students may not arrive before 7:45 a.m.
Worship is the keystone of the school day, setting the tone for a Christ-centered atmosphere in the classroom. We ask that worship time not be interrupted as this distracts from the spiritual atmosphere. In the event that a student arrives late, the parent or driver is asked to stay outside with the student(s) until worship is over at approximately 8:30 a.m. The student may then knock on the library door for admittance. The door will not be answered during worship.
School is dismissed at 3:15 p.m. (Mon. - Thur.) and 12:15 p.m. (Fri.), and students are to be picked up no later than 15 minutes after dismissal time. In the event that a student’s ride is late picking him/her up from school, a telephone call will be made to the parent/guardian or other person designated on the emergency call list for the student. A specific time must be made clear to the teacher when someone will pick-up the child. If an emergency or unforeseen circumstance arises, please call the teacher.
