Dear Union Christian Academy Parents:

 

With the rise of Covid cases in our area, the school board has made the decision to cancel Parent Orientation.  This letter should cover the items that would have been discussed. 

 

School office hours for August 2 – 13 are 9:00 – 1:00.  Our first day of school is August 16. 

 

School hours are 7:30 – 3:00.  A student is considered tardy at 7:35 or after the tardy bell in 7th – 12th grades.  Make sure your student is on-time.  Tardies affect learning for all students in the class.

 

Please refer to the enclosed 2021-2022 Student Handbook for the following changes or items that would have been discussed at Parent Orientation:

At this time, we will not have an after-school care program.  It may be reinstated if the need increases.  If you need after-care, contact Kay Hicks.

Page 16 - 19    Discipline and Conduct

The root of a Christian walk resides in the discipline of the individual.  Administering discipline should be rooted in love.  Our past discipline policy was confusing for students, teachers, and parents.  We believe this new policy will be more effective.

The discipline policies in the handbook cover 7th-12th grades. 

PreK-6th will be handled by the teacher, administration, and parents.
