Update on School Closing 3/17/2021

When it comes to making decisions on closing, we try to weigh everything in making a decision for the safety of our families.  While we try to avoid such a late notice of closing school, we also realize it is never too late to make that decision in the interest of safety.


Early Dismissal on 3/17

Looking at the weather forecast for tomorrow, we have decided to dismiss at 2:00pm so everyone can get ahead of any issues and prepare accordingly.  Early dismissals can be a little busier since we are dismissing Childcare and After-School Care at the same time, so we wanted to send as much detailed information as possible to help you prepare.

Elementary Students

The car pickup line for Elementary will remain largely the same, with Elementary parents in the first two lines and High School parents in the third line.  However, we will be dismissing Elementary students from the side door of the Gym rather than the Sanctuary.  We will begin that process at 1:45pm.

High School Students

The car pickup line for High School will remain largely the same, with Elementary parents in the first two lines and High School parents in the third line.  High School students will be dismissed on a staggered schedule like a normal dismissal day, so parents can proceed through the line as they normally would.

After-School Care/Childcare

Kindergarten students in After-School Care with older siblings in Elementary will also dismiss from the side door of the Gym.  We will pair up these K3-K5 students with their siblings in the Gym before we begin pickup, and they can load together in the pickup line.  This will keep these parents from having to park and enter the building for the younger child.

For Kindergarten students in After-School Care without older siblings, parents will need to proceed through the car pickup line to the parking lot beside the Gym.  Be sure to enter the first lane (closest to the church) so you can easily turn into the parking lot, park, and enter the building to pick up your child.  We will have a faculty/staff member there to help you re-enter the flow of traffic afterwards.

Likewise, parents of our infants and toddlers will also need to proceed through the car pickup line to the parking lot beside the Gym.  Be sure to enter the first lane (closest to the church) so you can easily turn into the parking lot, park, and enter the building to pick up your child.  We will have a faculty/staff member there to help you re-enter the flow of traffic afterwards.

There is a chance that this parking lot beside the Gym becomes full during the heavier traffic times.  If it does, please be patient with us as we move you back through the line to re-enter when space becomes available.  We will avoid this if at all possible, but we may need to ask you to circle back through in order to keep the pickup line from getting blocked for everyone else.

To help with this potential issue, parents of an infant, toddler, or Kindergarten student in After-School Care can pick up their child before the 2:00pm dismissal.  If that is possible for you, we appreciate you working with us to safely and quickly dismiss.

Finally, as always, please be mindful of the parking lot during these pick up times.  Please do not park on the street or behind the building to pick up students.  While this can seem faster, our staff will be busy in keeping the flow of traffic moving, and stopping to dismiss students outside of that flow slows down the process for everyone.

All after-school activities/practices will be cancelled as well.

Re-Enrollment for 2021-2022

In the past, Re-enrollment has been in March, with Open Enrollment for new students beginning April 1st. In order to help our prospective parents make decisions earlier for next year, we will move up Re-Enrollment this year.
 
The Re-enrollment period will begin February 1st. Parents will have the full month of February to re-enroll online via FACTS to secure their seat next year. You will receive information on how to re-enroll via email on that day, and there will remain a discounted registration fee for re-enrolling by February 15th. Any changes to tuitions or fees will be posted before February 1st for you to review.
 
Open Enrollment will begin March 1st for new students. We have already begun receiving applications for next year, and we have far more than we normally have at this point in the year. While this is a tremendous opportunity for us to minister to more families in our community, it also means that re-enrolling before the end of February will be imperative to secure a seat next year for our current families. Once we begin enrolling new students on March 1st, we cannot guarantee spots after that time.
