MEET YOUR TEACHER
Meet Your Teacher is on Wednesday, August 11th. The following schedule will allow our families to meet the teacher and see their classroom. We have set up a schedule so there is less crowding when coming and going. Please stick to your time so everyone remains safe. The schedule by last name is:
A-G 9-9:45 am
H-M 10-10:45 am
N-Z 11-11:45 am
This will be an opportunity to say a quick HELLO and walk through the school. There will be a paperwork table set up in the Narthex. Please stop by after visiting your classroom(s) to hand in your lunch form, Birthday Marquis and Medication Administration forms. Students will also receive their car tags and spirit shirts in their classrooms. Size exchanges can be made at the school office. Also, visit our clothes closet (free uniforms).
Classroom Orientation will be held for Kindergarten parents (Parents Only) on Tuesday, August 17th @ 6 pm. Classroom Orientation will be held for 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade parents (Parents Only) on Wednesday, September 1st at 6 pm. Classroom Orientation will be held for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade parents (Parents Only) on Thursday, September 2 @ 6 pm. Classroom Orientation will give the teacher the opportunity for the teacher to answer or address any questions that have arisen in the process of school starting for your family.
Middle School students (grades 6th-8th) are in session from 8:10 am - 3 pm and may arrive between 7:55 - 8:05 am. Middle school start time is 8:10 am. Elementary School students (grades K-5th) are in session from 8:30 am - 3 pm and may arrive between 8:10-8:30 am. Coming early holds up the Middle School students getting to class on time as younger students take a lot longer to leaving their cars. Students should be in their classrooms when the bell rings, not getting out of their car.
*Please note: Families with elementary students who have a middle school student (grades 6th-8th may arrive between 7:55-8:10 am but the child must go directly to their classroom and cannot walk around campus.
Since Middle School students must get to class by 8:10 am we ask that elementary parents not hold up the drop off car line in the morning. Please arrive after 8:10 am and let Safety Patrol assist your child out of the car.
Families will get their car tags at Meet The Teacher. Extra tags are available in the school office. If you have a grandparent picking up at dismissal or need another tag just email Ms. Patti (Pharmon@familyofchristtampa.com) and she will send one home with your child that day.
During the first two days of school, only kindergarten and new parents may park in the parking lot and then walk their child to their classroom. Returning families, please be understanding to our new families who are coming into school for the first time walking their child inside. Starting the first full week of school, students are then dropped off in car line. Parents will not be allowed to enter the building.
Pick up is at 3 pm. Please pull up and wait in the pick up line to the side of the building. Teachers and Patrols will guide your child to your car as you pull up. Therefore your child's car seat or booster should be located on the right side of the back seat. For your child's safety, children will not be allowed to cross traffic alone. Parents please do not cross traffic to pick up your child.
BEFORE/AFTER CARE PROGRAM
You must have completed Before/ After Care paperwork and enrolled before the first day of school (This paperwork will be sent home electronically at the end of July, will be available at "Meet The Teacher", and then be available at the School Office). Make sure to let your child's teacher know what days your child will attend the Before/ After Care program.
If your child is dropped off before 7:55 am or not picked up by 3:15 pm, they will be checked into this program and you will be charged accordingly.
