What should my child wear?
T-shirts will be distributed the first day of the academy. We encourage the children to wear them all week (please launder as needed) as a way to identify the academy participants. Depending on the class, proper footwear is encouraged – especially for the outdoor class selections.
What is the schedule for the day? 8:00 am: Doors open for Academy Students (please report to the cafeteria) DO NOT DROP OFF STUDENTS PRIOR TO 8:00 AM! 8:20 am: Students will be released to go to their classrooms 9:20-11:00 am: Each class will have a 20-minute assigned snack/break-time. Healthy snacks/drinks can be purchased for $1.00 each, or you are welcome to pack a snack and water bottle each day. Nut free tables will be monitored. 11:50 am: Students riding busses will be released from class to line up and board busses. 12:00: Car riders will be released to line up and be dismissed by class from the front of the building.
My child isn’t riding a bus – how and where do I drop them off and pick them up? Drop off instructions: Parents please park and walk your child into the front of the building, or drop off in the lane nearest to the school building. Busses are scheduled to arrive at 8:15 am and will park in back. Academy helpers will be outside to assist students in crossing and direct traffic.
Pick Up Instructions: Parents can park and exit their cars to pick up students, or drive through the lane closest to the front of school please pick-up according to class. Please stay to the left until you have reached your child’s stop. Students with younger siblings at Summer Honors Academy should line up with the younger child’s class. If your child is being picked up instead of riding the bus, or going home with someone other than a parent a written note must be sent in for the child’s teacher that day!
My child is riding a bus, where will they be picked up?
Please refer to the Transportation Schedule link. Each location where children are dropped off or picked up has specifics about where to do so.
Can my child have a different pick up and drop off location (i.e. ride two different buses)
YES! Please note this when you register the child. We will then notify the drivers of BOTH buses for you, so they know when to expect your child(ren)
