Family Service Hours Policy:
Our school depends on the time provided by our volunteers. The participation of each family is critical to the success and continued growth of our school community. Service hours are required of each family with children in grades K -8 at the school. Each family must contribute a minimum of 15 hours per school year. Parents, guardians or adult family members may contribute service hours.
A list of service opportunities will be available at the end of August for the school year. Service hours for a school year are completed between July 1 and June 30 of the following calendar year. It will be the responsibility of each family to record their service hours on the Family Service Hours form (digital form submitted online) or Paper Family Service Hours form (PDF to download and print) and turn it into the Service Hours Coordinator by the last school day of each month. If a family is unable to complete the total number of service hours by June 30, they are required to pay $25 to the school for each hour not served. Our preference, however, is for each family to contribute in service to the school. Your child/children will be placed on a waiting list if service hours are not completed by June 30, or if outstanding fees have not been paid by July 1. The principal may use his discretion to excuse a family from service hours. This policy will be reviewed annually.
