Policies & Procedures
Snow/Calamity Day Make-up
Please watch local news for school delays and closings. Nonpublic schools are not required to report calamity day data to ODE. State law does not specifically state that nonpublic schools may waive days due to calamites such as hazardous road conditions; therefore, the law is subject to interpretation.” (www.ode.state.oh.us)
As we must follow the Ohio Department of Education standards and regulations at a minimum ,which we exceed by far in many areas, every decision that has to do with our students is thought-out and decided with great concern and under the guidance of the ODE rules and regulations.
Please take an extra look at what your child is wearing, including the light jackets, before they leave in the morning.
Please help us eliminate the extra time spent on calling home and clothing changes so your child can focus on learning. Thank you in advance for understanding how much extra effort and time this takes.
The students wear uniform clothing to give them a sense that school is a very important place to be. A special place where we dress to focus on learning and not on clothing.
PLEASE no Nike or other logos or students will have to wear the shirt inside out. **Keep ALL girls hair clips, beads, and rubber bands school colors. Nothing fancy or showy. School color shoes as well. Must be school colors.
Dress code will be enforced. If the child comes to school not in uniform we will send a note home as a reminder.

The school facilities do not include a licensed commercial kitchen in daily operation. We do have a license to serve food on the premise for special events & restaurant deliveries. Daily students are required to bring a snack and lunch with them to school. We are not allowed to heat food. Accordingly we do not serve breakfast so please have your child eat before coming to school. Any food delivered to school after 8:10am cannot be given to the student until lunch or during a scheduled snack time.
