Review our Policies & Guidelines
Children MUST BE supervised by an adult at ALL TIMES while at Archway Campus if they are under the age of 8. Anytime children are on campus at Archway, they should have a parent or other designated adult on-site. Parents do not attend classes with their children. Should a parent need to run a quick errand during their child's class time, another trusted adult should be designated as a point of contact for the interim in case of emergency (all students). Please inform your child of the adult contact before they attend class. Do not leave children unattended after or between classes if they are under the age of 9. Parents should maintain visual contact with children (ages 0-8) under their supervision when not in class and should do their best to maintain a quiet and calm atmosphere in the common area. If parents stay on-site with a child who is not enrolled in class, please bring something quiet for him/her to work on (this can be a great time for quiet family reading or worksheets). Outdoor play is permitted, under parental supervision only. Hall monitors are on-site between classes to help students 9 or older transfer from class to class. All students should be met by a parent or designated adult after their final class.
Bottoms: shorts and skirts should be fingertip length or longer when arms are down in a relaxed manner.
Undergarments should not be visible.
Shoes should be worn at all times.
Hats, hoods and sunglasses should not be worn indoors.
Flushing toilets, turning off faucets completely, and alerting staff of any issues with facilities
Avoid bringing any food or beverages into carpeted areas or the gym (only eat in the designated common room)
We expect students to be respectful of their teachers, peers, facility, and other families. For many children, this will be their first time in a classroom setting. Please review appropriate classroom behavior with children before the first day of classes, including staying in your seat, raising your hand/not talking out of turn, never touching others in an inappropriate manner, and avoiding noises, comments or movements that may be disruptive or disrespectful to others. We expect all behavior to be honoring to God.
Consequences for inappropriate behavior by a parent/caregiver
(see student consequences above):
1. The first time a problem arises there will be a verbal reminder of the policies. If the inappropriate behavior persists, a meeting may be held with two or more members of the Archway Board.
2. If there continues to be a problem with regards to the discussed problem or any other policy infraction, the board maintains the right to ask that family to leave Archway Classes for any reason. Board decisions are final. All actions of students and parents should be in accordance with Archway's policies and beliefs.
Conversations by parents, caregivers and students should not include language (profanity) or topics that are inappropriate in a family environment. We expect adults in the community to be good role models for the children. We expect older children to be good role models for the younger children. We ask that all in the Archway community respect each other and respect Archway's policies and beliefs on campus both in letter and in spirit.
Weapons of any sort (including pocket knives) are prohibited on campus, as are matches/lighters, tobacco, alcohol products, and illegal or unauthorized drugs. If any of these items are found, they will be confiscated and the student will be expelled from the program without refund.
We typically follow the Alamance-Burlington School System schedule for inclement weather. In the case of a delay being announced, we will make a decision that morning and email families by 8:00 am with our final decision.
If you bring a guest one week, please have them stay with the parent in the Common Room and let a Board member know in advance. If you would like to bring a guest to class, you must receive approval from the Board and Teacher in advance.
Please leave all wheeled items (bicycles, scooters, roller-blades/skates, skateboards, and 'Heely' shoes) at home.
Please leave all electronic devices at home or in your vehicle unless they are being used for educational purposes.
Your child’s safety and well-being is our primary concern. If a child is hurt, we will notify you immediately. See above that all parents should remain onsite or have an emergency contact onsite if you child is over age 9.
If you have a problem with your child’s teacher or another individual associated with Archway, you are encouraged to speak directly to them about it either in person, by phone, or by email. If the issue cannot be resolved, please contact the Board for mediation. All decisions by the Board are final.
Payments & Dropping Classes
We have some very dedicated teachers at Archway who put an extraordinary amount of planning and effort into their classes. The board works hard to place students in their preferred classes, budget for the semester, and prepare rosters in the weeks before classes begin. It is important that families seriously consider whether or not they are going to be able classes prior Registration. Archway has no refund policy.
Note that supply fees are paid directly to teachers on the first day of class to cover supplies and are non-refundable. Please be sure to remit supply fees promptly, as teachers use their own money to purchase materials in advance for each student before the beginning of each semester. It is helpful to bring exact change to the teacher on the first day of class in a sealed envelope with your child's name on it.
