Important Reminders – 08/09/2014

Dear Parents,

Below are important reminders for you as we begin school.

The Student/Parent Handbook is on our website and can be found at the following link:

Since morning devotion begins promptly at 8:00, students arriving to school after 8:00 will not be allowed to go to class until morning devotion ends. Parents must remain at school with their child until morning devotion ends and late arrivals are permitted to go to class.

During drop-off and pick-up, use the Miller Road gate entrance only to eliminate traffic back-up during these times.

If you have not already picked up your carpool numbers, please do so by Monday evening before pickup. Carpool numbers must be displayed clearly in the upper right-hand corner of the passenger-side front windshield in order for a driver to pick up students using the carpool lane. Parents without properly displayed carpool numbers must park and come inside the school building to pick up their children.

If someone else is picking up your child, their information must be in our system and you must notify us they will be picking up you child on a particular day.

Afternoon announcements begin at 2:40. Dismissal will begin after announcements end.

If you will be picking up your child after 3:30, your child will automatically enter After-Care and you will be subject to our After-Care rates.

Most students were able to get all items in their Fall uniform package; however, there were some students needing very small sizes who could not get their uniform. As a result, initially, all students are allowed to wear shirts of their choice (no character shirts) with the khaki bottoms. We expect the smaller size shirts to arrive late next week.   In addition, students may wear any color tennis shoes until the required school tennis shoes are distributed with the Winter package. We will notify you when all students must be in their Academy of Scholars uniform.

We are looking forward to an exciting year and we are happy you have chosen to be a part of The Academy of Scholars Family. It is our privilege to serve you.
