We are looking forward to seeing you at our Meet the Teacher drop-in on Monday, August 8, from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. We will have tons of important information for you that evening. Middle and high students will be able to pick up their schedules. We also have two information sessions you won’t want to miss:

                                              Meet the Teacher

                                       High Point Academy Campus

                                              Monday, August 8

                                               4:30 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Information sessions*

Elementary: 5:00 p.m. (Performing Arts Center)

Middle/High: 5:45 p.m. (Performing Arts Center)

 *The sessions will include essential information about many things including:

  • PARENTSQUARE

All information, including that from teachers and coaches, will be communicated to families using this tool. We will walk you through how to sign-up so you can be-in-the know 24/7.

  • CAR LINE

We have new car line procedures for all drop-offs for the 2022-2023 school year. We will tell you what you need to know to help keep the car line moving smoothly - especially on those first few days. Our elementary school has created a video for elementary dismissal procedures which you will find on our elementary school page, or you can click here to watch it.

Please note that there will be no early drop-off this school year. Doors to the main entrance and drop-off (in the front center of the building behind the front playground) and side drop-off elementary (to the left of the building if you are facing the front) will remain locked until 7:15 a.m. For the safety of your children, please do not drop them off prior to 7:15 a.m. There is no adult supervision prior to this time.

The car line is the only provided means of dismissal each day at 2:45. Please do not try to skip the car line by going to get your child at the front office or parking in the parking lot and having your student come to your vehicle. The front office will not dismiss students after 2:15 unless the office has received prior (and confirmed) notification by note or email for early dismissal (for something such as a doctor's appointment). Students must be picked up no later than 3:15 p.m. unless they are participating in sports, clubs, after-school care or activities.

  • STUDENT PARKING AND PASSES

This year you will be able to obtain your student parking pass during Meet the Teacher. You will find the application here on our website under Parents & Students/Documents & Forms. Printing, filling it out, and bringing it to Meet the Teacher will save you time. 

Parking Pass Applications

o   Parking passes are $20 per vehicle.

o   Students must show a driver’s license and proof of insurance to obtain a parking pass.

  • FREE OR REDUCED-PRICE LUNCHES 

Last year, the federal government provided free lunches for all students. That program has come to an end, so this year we will be resuming normal procedures for breakfast and lunch purchases. Students need healthy meals to learn. Your children may qualify for free meals or reduced-price meals.
