Parent Update: August 24

Mrs. Hinton’s second grade class on the first day of school.

Thank you all for helping us have a great first day of school! We’ve said it over and over throughout the last few months, and here we are saying it again…thank you for your support! Thank you for entrusting us with your children. Thank you for your patience as we work through the snags of the first week of school.

We are so excited about the unprecedented growth taking place on our campus! We are starting this school year with 129 new students and 16 new faculty and staff members. With this growth comes normal growing pains, and we are doing our best to work them all out.

Middle School and High School Schedules

Mrs. Ford and Mrs. Anderson are working to correct schedules for students whose schedules still need tweaking. Students who would like to request a change to their schedule should see Mrs. Anderson.


Arrival went pretty smoothly this morning. Thank you for working together to make this process work. Make sure you are dropping your child off in the designated location:

  • Middle School and High School: back driveway by the upper school buildings
    • Form two lines as you pull around the loop.
    • Make sure you pull completely around the curve and are even with sidewalk before letting your children out of the car. 
  • 4th and 5th grade: end door of the elementary building (door nearest the gym)
    • Pull up near the canopy on the sidewalk before letting students out of the car.
    • When merging back into the drive-line, be aware of cars merging into the 2nd-3rd grade drop-off line.
  • 2nd and 3rd grade: front door of the elementary building
    • Merge into the drop-off line after the drop-off point for 4th-5th grade.
  • Kindergarten and 1st grade: end door of the elementary building nearest the administrative building
    • Form two lines as you pull around the corner to the end door.

I’ve attached a campus map showing the path for each drop-off point to help you learn where to go. Follow the directions of the staff members posted at various points directing traffic. We also have multiple staff members posted at each drop-off point to assist students in getting into the building.


We are making some adjustments to how we handle dismissal based on feedback from today. Make sure you have your car tag hanging from the rearview mirror with the student’s name showing. Elementary parents who do not have a car tag need to contact Amy Gady at Middle school and high school parents who need a car tag should contact Pam Reason at

  • Middle school and high school
    • In the loop by the upper school buildings, in the same location as morning drop-off 
    • Pull all the way up to the stop sign and the staff will call your student to come out. 
    • You can help speed up the pickup process by encouraging your child to head outside quickly after being called.
  • Elementary 
    • At the front entrance of the elementary building
    • Two lines form using the parking spots in front of the elementary building and the gym and the right-hand drive lane. 
    • Leave the left-hand drive lane open for traffic to drive through campus to the daycare or the exit.
