Drop Off/Pick-Up Procedures

Thank you parents for cooperating with our new procedures this week! We know the adjustment might still take some time, but we will continue working on this until it is as efficient as can be!


Reminders:

Students need to arrive at school between 8:00 - 8:15 in the morning. You may park your car in the parking lot, but please make sure your child is in the building, and that you have completed the daily health screening, before driving off. Students are not allowed in the building before 8:00 AM. Dismissal is at 3:00 PM. Students need to be picked up by 3:15. It is important that you stay in your car in the line, and do not skip or drive to the front until it is your turn. Please follow the arrows in the parking lot for the pick up line. If you need child care before or after school, please contact the Foundations Learning Academy at (804) 231-2149.

Outdoor school for 6th-8th Graders

6th-8th grade parents, the conference is organizing a wonderful outdoor learning opportunity for our middle school students. This will take place October 18-20 at Mt. Aetna Retreat Center in Maryland. Please click the link below for more information. If you are interested in your child attending, please contact Mr. Thomas or Ms. Nugent. We are still working with the conference on details, and will update you as soon as we can.

Uniforms

Please remember to follow the uniform schedules as outlined below. If you have ordered uniforms, and are still waiting on them to arrive, please be sure to write your child's teacher a note so they can be excused.


Monday - Regular Uniform

Tuesday & Thursday - Gym Uniform

Wednesday - Full Dress Uniform

Friday - Dress Down Uniform

Tuition Payments

A reminder that tuition is due the 15th of each month. You will be receiving an updated statement of your account. For now, all payments to the school should be made through CashApp ($Ejapay). Please make the necessary payments so that we can continue to provide for the needs of our school. For questions regarding tuition payments, please contact Mr. Paul (treasurer@ephesusjracademy.org).

Registration Forms

We are almost there! All forms need to be completed by Tuesday, so that the conference has our most updated list of enrolled students. If you need any assistance, please contact the office during office hours.

Water Bottles

Our water bottle filling station is working with a brand new filter! As a safety precaution, students are not allowed to drink from our water fountains. They may bring a water bottle to refill with water throughout the day. We are trying to eliminate waste in our building, so please encourage students to bring reusable water bottles, instead of plastic ones that will end up in the trash.
