Arrival and Dismissal

CHA would like to highly encourage all students and family members to use the crosswalks during drop-off and dismissal for safety concerns. There have been several students and family members crossing Hulen Street and Sycamore School Road at random locations.

We are currently working with the City of Fort Worth and our Neighborhood Police Officer to improve the traffic management patterns of our school location.

We also would like to remind families that during drop off we have students who are walking in and to please drive slow and keep an eye out for students.

Thank you for keeping everyone safe.

Youth Resilience Wraparound Program and Opportunity for Success Program

Two programs are available to the children and families of Chapel Hill Academy through Lena Pope.

Youth Resilience Wraparound Program:

Lena Pope’s Wraparound Program was created to involve the whole family in creating stronger family relationships and to reduce unwanted behaviors like truancy, risk-taking, or substance use. Our team takes a broad view to see the needs of every family and then creates an individual plan to help families reach their goals. We want youth to have positive relationships with their family and community, to feel supported, and to have the skills needed to handle difficult situations they will encounter in life. Services are offered in-home at no cost to the family.

The Opportunity for Success Program:

The Opportunity for Success Program focuses on building youth social skills, decision making, self-esteem, and parenting skills to assist families in decreasing negative behaviors at home, in the school, and in the community using short-term, family-focused services. Through separate structured classes, both you and your child participate in 90-minute classes on a weekly basis for seven weeks. Three home visits and/or school visits by program staff are required to participate in the program. Currently visits are conducted over the phone during COVID. There is no charge to you.
