Virtue of the Month- Perseverance

Big picture

Virtue of the month May- Perseverance

Refusing to give up when life gets hard.

Confucius said, “It doesn’t matter how slowly you go, as long as you don’t stop.” So when you are getting tired of something and feel like you should quit, remember that you can slow down and pace yourself, but keep going! Perseverance is refusing to give up when life gets hard.

Mastering Dismissal Procedures


  • Families Remain In Vehicles- We are mastering our arrival/dismissal procedures... We ask that parents do not exit vehicles during drop-off or dismissal. We will service families from their vehicles first.
  • Parking on Taft Street Side of Building Prohibited during Dismissal- We ask that ALL car-riders are picked up on the Cleveland Street Side of the Building.

Your Scholar is A Car-Rider: If and When These Conditions Apply

If at anytime your scholar is exiting campus and entering a vehicle, your scholar is a Car-Rider. It does not matter that this not your scholar's normal way of getting home. If at any point you are picking up your scholar, please report to the Cleveland Street Side of the building for pick-up. If your scholar is caught by an adult walking and entering a car, he/she will be located with car-riders for their safety and the safety of all walkers exiting campus.

Entry Into The Building For Scholars

Car-Riders- Cleveland Street Side of Building

  • Parents remain in car-rider line until temperate checks are cleared.
  • Masks will be available. Let the team member know if your scholar needs one.
  • 8:00 AM - Gym doors close/ Morning announcements start: Only at that time will car-riders report in the front of the building

Walkers- Taft Street Side ( Front of Building)

  • Parents may remain in the vestibule until temperature checks are completed.
  • Vestibule is a designated Hug Zone for families.

Bus-Riders-

  • Bus-Rider Zone on Taft side of building
  • Mask are available. If your scholar needs a mask, please let them know to ask

Picking Up Scholars Early

  • Closed Campus @ 2:30 PM - Doors lock at that time to prepare for a safe dismissal

We humbly ask that you allow your scholar to attend school for the entire day as our goal is to increase academics and exceed the district and state. In order for the team to make sure we meet our goal, we need our families. We understand emergencies, but we ask that you would honor our SOAR. Leave our scholars with us for the duration of the school day.
