Circle of Grace (Child Protection)
It is a requirement that the Circle of Grace program be taught each year. Individual, age appropriate, lessons are provided for each grade level. The classes will be held during our regular scheduled class times, and parents will be notified ahead of time, with the option to have their child "opt out" if they so choose. 2022-2023 Dates TBA
Student Drop off and Pick Up Instructions (K and 8th)
CARPOOL DROP OFF/PICK UP FOR KINDERGARTEN AND 8TH GRADE: PARENTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO DROP OFF AND PICK UP THEIR CHILDREN UNDER THE NEW PORTE COCHERE AT THE ACTIVITY CENTER. Kindergarten parents please make sure your child is unbuckled and ready to exit the vehicle when the door is opened by either myself or Ms. Jayne. 8th grade youth will exit on their own and proceed to the main door of the activity center to enter and have their temperature checked. Make sure you enter through the north side of the church and then proceed to the activity center under the new porte cochere and circle back to the church parking lot. Please leave a space between cars when dropping off so others can exit. We appreciate your patience as we begin a new drop off and pick up procedure.
If someone other than the parent/guardian is picking up the child, that person must be listed on your child’s registration information. If that person is not listed on the card, we will contact the parent/guardian for verbal permission.
Kindergarten will be dropped off at 5:25 pm and will be picked up at 6:30 pm. 8th grade will be dropped off at 6:55 pm and picked up at 8:15 pm. Rainy day will be the same procedure as above.
