ADMISSION

Scholars are expected to arrive to school by 8:00AM Each Day


BREAKFAST

Scholars who wish to eat breakfast at GLASW must arrive by 7:55AM.


LATENESS

Our morning routines are critical for scholar achievement. Scholars are expected to be in school by 8am in order to fully participate in Harambee. Please ensure that your scholar is on time each day. After 8:15AM scholars will be marked late. This year we are closely monitoring lateness and attendance and will be setting up truancy meetings with parents whose children consistently arrive to school late.


DISMISSAL

Kindergarten dismissal is at 3:45pm and 1st-8th Grade dismissal is at 4:00pm. All scholars must be picked up promptly.


LATE PICKUPS

Late pickups of scholars is a chronic concern for GLASW. A fee of $10.00 every 15 minutes will be assessed after 4:15PM for any scholar picked up late. On early dismissal days the fee will start after 1:15PM. Fees are due upon pickup. School trips, incentives, and scholar records may be affected by outstanding fees owed.


FULL UNIFORM

All scholars are expected to dress in full GLASW uniform daily. This includes black school shoes. Every Friday is fitness Friday at GLASW and all scholars are expected to be in full GLASW gym uniform. Gym uniforms must be worn with black sneakers - no exceptions!

PARENT GOAL #1 ATTENDANCE MATTERS

ALL SCHOLARS ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEND SCHOOL AT LEAST 95% OF THE TIME. POOR ATTENDANCE PATTERNS LEAD TO LOST INSTRUCTIONAL TIME AND SIGNIFICANT LEARNING GAPS.
