Arrival

Students should arrive at school between 7:45 AM and 8:05 AM. Please be aware that there is no general supervision before 7:45 AM.

Attendance will be taken before morning prayer and assembly, which begins at 8:05 AM. On the first day of school, as well as on Wednesdays, all students should report to their classrooms. The rest of the year students should proceed to the gym for morning prayer and assembly.

Parents are encouraged to utilize the live drop off lane (see below) in front of the elementary building. Students enter the gymnasium and are under teacher supervision until the start of the morning prayer and assembly.

Early Drop Off

Students who arrive before 7:45 AM must be escorted by a parent to the early drop off program--which takes place in the second floor kindergarten classroom--and will be charged accordingly. Early drop off is available beginning at 7:00 AM.

The fee for early drop off is determined at the beginning of each academic year.

Dismissal

Students must be picked up by a parent or parent-designated adult at dismissal. If someone other than a parent is to pick up a child and that person’s name is not on the student’s consent form, the parent must provide written notification to the school office. Under no circumstances will students be allowed to leave the school premises without adult supervision. Parents assume full responsibility for their children upon pick up. In order to maintain a safe environment, parents should depart the school building immediately upon pick up.

After 3:15 PM students will automatically be escorted to the Late Stay program and will be charged accordingly.

Excused Dismissal

If a child is to be dismissed during the school day, written parental notification is required. Parents are asked to try to schedule doctors and other appointments after school hours so that students do not miss valuable learning time.

Late Stay

SSAES operates a Late Stay program until 5:30 PM Monday – Friday. Students who are not picked up by 3:15 PM will be escorted to the Late Stay program and will be charged accordingly. Late Stay is held in the elementary building for students in grades 1-5 and will provide students an environment to complete homework in a quiet, structured, and supervised setting. Late Stay begins with a snack and recess (students should bring a snack from home). Students will then proceed with their homework. This is NOT a tutoring or extra help period, but rather a quiet supervised study hall. Once homework is complete students are free to engage in quiet games or reading within the classroom. Late Stay students should bring a book from home. Kindergarten students will be escorted to the Preschool building for Late Stay. The fee and hours for late stay are determined at the beginning of each academic year.
