Address/Telephone Changes

Please notify the program if there are any changes in your telephone number, address, or employment. This information is critical in cases of emergencies and should given to the program as soon as possible.

Absences

Students are expected to be on time every day.  Parents need to call the program to inform office of their child’s absence.

Parents will be notified in writing when their child has an excessive amount of tardies or absences, which could result in an attendance contract.

Bus Regulations

Proper behavior is required on the school bus. Bus transportation is a privilege. Students who misbehave on the bus may lose their privilege to ride. If a student loses his/her privilege to ride the bus, it is the parents’ responsibility to transport the child to school. Parents are also responsible for their child’s behavior at the bus stop.

Discipline

In our program, students are working not only on academics but also on social/emotional behavior and building self-control. These are vital behaviors to ensure that they are getting the most out of each instructional day. Students are expected to follow the Henry County Code of Conduct in addition to building and classroom rules. We use a token economy program to help our students reach their academic and social/behavior goals. In the event of misbehavior, students may receive consequences such as: verbal warning, teacher conference, parent contact, and in-school or out-of-school suspension.

Inclement Weather

We follow the schedule of Henry County Public Schools during the event of inclement weather.

Meals

Student breakfast, lunch, and snack are free.

School Spirit

Our school colors are navy blue, gold, and white.

Our school mascot is the Owl.
