Does the School Office have your current email address?
In order to ensure that you receive our bi-weekly informational emails, we must have a current email address entered in Eagle Access for our families.
What do I do if I forget my User ID or Password for Eagle Access?
Contact Nick Jones at ext. 136, or a school secretary, and we can provide that information to you.
What are the school hours?
School is in session from 8:00am– 2:50pm. There is supervision before school beginning at 7:30am and after school until 3:15pm. Lower school students are to arrive to school before 8:00 and are considered tardy after 8:05. Students that are using car pool transportation are to be picked up by 3:15pm. If your child is not picked up by 3:15 they will be sent to After-Care. Note: If your child is picked up after 3:15, a late pick-up charge will be accessed to your tuition account. To assist parents with child care, our After-Care Program is available (for a fee) on campus from 3:00pm– 6:00pm. Contact the Lower School Office for more information.
Where do I drop off my child for school?
Lower school students may be dropped off at Entrances A & B (sidewalk and entrance overhang). Students as per grade and arrival time are to report to the following locations:

Preschool & PreK

  • Report to the classroom.

Grades K – 5

  • Between 7:30 – 8:00 report to the cafeteria.

  • After 8:04 report to the office for a tardy pass.
