BEHAVIOR GUIDELINDES & FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Attention Parents:

  • Please be punctual in dropping off your child as we are working under a very tight schedule and we must do our best to adhere to it.
  • Make sure your child dresses according to the weather. The temperature and weather may be a little different than where you live. It is strongly advised that you pay particular attention to the weather reports/projections for the area via The Weather Channel or your local news.
  • Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided at no additional cost.
  • A limited number of snacks such as fruit, chips, drinks, etc., will be provided at no cost to the students between meals.
  • Miscellaneous Items. It is suggested that students bring travelers checks or debit cards in lieu of excess cash for any purchases at the book store, as this reduces the chances of lost or stolen items. Please exercise sound judgment and use personal discretion.
  • With the exception of emergencies only, please refrain from calling my cell phone to ask about or speak to your child.
  • Please read and review the behavior guidelines with your child and be sure they understand the expectations.
