Uniform Policy
We believe that properly wearing the uniform will display unity, modesty, neatness, and dignity.  It demonstrates respect for self, education, teachers and fellow students.  Wearing the uniform will facilitate focus on learning and service, rather than on clothing and accessories and will remind students of their commitment to live by the White House Academy Honor Code.

STUDENT PICK UP AND DROP OFF   

Please do not park in front of the front school doors, not even for a moment.

Drop Off

Students should not be dropped off before 8:15. When dropping your students off in the morning, please come to the "U"-shaped parking lot near the front doors (south side of building). Vehicles need to drive through the lot on the right hand side so that if anyone needs to pull out they can do so on the left. Students will proceed to the assembly room and wait for classes to begin.

Pick Up

Students in grades 1-8 must be picked up before 3:15 pm.

Pre-K pick up for morning and afternoon sessions will be at the front doors. Parents will come to the "U"-shaped parking lot near the front doors (south side of building). Mrs. Batty will meet you there with your children. Vehicles need to drive through the lot on the right hand side so that if anyone needs to pull out they can do so on the left. Having students enter the right side of vehicles would keep them safer so that they don't have to pass between cars.

 

Kindergarten pick up will be at 11:30. All parents will come to the "U"-shaped parking lot near the front doors (south side of building). Mrs. Brough will meet you there with your children. Vehicles need to drive through the lot on the right hand side so that if anyone needs to pull out they can do so on the left. Having students enter the right side of vehicles would keep them safer so that they don't have to pass between cars.

Grades 1-8 will be released at 3:00. All students will be picked up at the back door (west side of building). Enter and exit the lot according to the diagram below.
