Homeschool Bridge Program Participation Policies
As a service to our homeschool community, South Lancaster Academy offers a hybrid program allowing students in grades K-12 to enroll in music and physical education courses. In addition to enrollment, “Bridge” program students would also be eligible for participation in school sports programs, music concerts and weeks of prayer. We are happy to have your child participating in our program. Please note the following policies to make the experience enjoyable for everyone.
Attendance students need to sign-in at the front desk upon arrival for class and sign-out as they leave at the close of class. Attendance will be taken for each period. If your student will not be able to come to class, please notify the office as a courtesy. We ask that you take your child off campus between periods. We are not equipped with staffing to supervise your child, nor do we wish to disturb other classrooms in session.
Drop-Off and Pick-Up Students may be dropped off at the door no sooner than five minutes before class begins and must be picked up no later than five minutes after the close of class.
Grading Policy Teachers will be placing your child’s grade for the class into the RenWeb system, a location you will have access to online. We recognize the parent as the main teacher for the homeschooled child. Therefore, this grade is a suggestion based on the guidelines the class’s teacher sets up at the beginning of the course. If you choose to record a different grade in your own gradebook at home, that is your choice, but we ask that you respect the teacher’s guidelines.
School Policies Participating students will be expected to follow the dress code, behavior, and general guidelines as outlined in the South Lancaster School Handbook.
