FROM OUR DIRECTOR

New this year, the school board has mandated that all parents meet with the director, myself, within the first few weeks of school. I have compiled the highlights of what is needed for this school year in a packet entitled "2017-2018 School Overview" and will discuss those topics with you.


If you missed the meetings on Friday or Tuesday please contact Mrs. Carla (csmith@cbcarlington.org) to schedule for a specific time.

Morning Breakfast (6:45 AM - 7:45 AM)

Students are no longer allowed to eat breakfast in the office. If your child arrives after 7:45 AM with food, they must sit with their parents in the cafeteria in order to eat. All students will receive a snack during their 10:00 AM rotation.
  • FIRST ROUND OF ASSESSMENTS WILL BE COMPLETED NEXT WEEK AND PROGRESS REPORTS WILL BE SENT HOME NEXT FRIDAY.
  • PLEASE REMEMBER TO TAKE HOME YOUR CHILD'S BINDER DAILY AND DO NOT LEAVE IT AT THE SCHOOL. MAKE SURE THEIR BACKPACK IS LARGE ENOUGH FOR THE BINDER TO FIT INSIDE.
  • RETURNING PARENTS, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SIGN AND RETURN THE NEW TUITION/FEES POLICY AND YOUR ENROLLMENT CONFIRMATION FORMS. THESE ITEMS WERE EMAILED TO YOU. IF YOU NEED AN ADDITIONAL COPY PLEASE LET COACH JUSTIN KNOW (jalexander@cbcarlington.org)

  • UNIFORMS CAN BE DROPPED OFF IN THE OFFICE ANYTIME TO BE EMBROIDERED. THE COST IS $8 PER ITEM.
  • VISION AND HEARING SCREENINGS WILL TAKE PLACE SEPTEMBER 21ST. ALL CHILDREN BETWEEN THE AGES OF 3-5 MUST HAVE THIS INFORMATION ON FILE. PLEASE EMAIL ACADEMY@CBCARLINGTON.ORG AND INFORM US IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN HAVING THIS DONE ON CAMPUS.
  • Boys are not allowed to wear earrings to school. All students are forbidden to wear hair beads of any kind.
  • Did you know that when a child has a stomach bug, they should stay home from school or daycare for 24 hours after the last bout of vomiting to decrease the spread of the illness to others? If your child has to miss school because of a sickness please call or email by 10 am, and also let us know if anything is contagious. Your child must stay home if they have a fever exceeding 100 degrees or if they are showing any signs of illness.
  • Please do not give your door code to anyone other than the person it was assigned to for building access. This is to ensure the safety of all children and staff. Also, if you are suspicious about someone wanting to get in the door and you realize they do not have a code, wait in your car and do not allow them to enter behind you.
  • Clock your child in and out daily. We must keep accurate attendance records to maintain DFPS compliance
  • Bring extra clothes daily!!
  • Bring a blanket and fitted sheet on Monday, take home on Friday.
  • Food Program: Students bringing snacks from home will be given an additional snack time at 5pm to eat those foods.
