Possible Tuition Increase-Update

We hear you and we are listening! Several of you have complained over the past few months about the poor customer service provided by Smart Tuition. The late fees, bank fail fees, and follow up calls have become a nuisance to many of you as well.


We will NOT need to increase tuition. We have decided to go with a company currently compatible with our clock in system. The increase in funds is equivalent to the Smart Tuition enrollment fee, so therefore, there is no need to increase your payments!

Mandatory Parent Teacher Conferences

All conference times have been scheduled. If you did not email to make an appointment, one was assigned to you. The teachers will be calling to conduct the conferences over the phone. If you would like to know what time to expect your call, please email academy@cbcarlington.org and Coach Justin or Mrs. Carla will let you know what day and time.

Christmas Break

Just a reminder, we are closed from December 18-January 2nd. The staff returns for inservice on the 2nd and the students return on the 3rd. Enjoy this precious family time!

I haven't been able to tell everyone, so here's my official school announcement... this new little one I've been carrying around is indeed another boy! Lucky me!!!!

  • 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.
