Important Info

Welcome to The Home School Connection! 

We are excited to offer your child a variety of fun and educational classes. In order to help you gain more information about the classes and teachers we have added the teacher’s biographies to our website, if you have any questions, they have provided you with contact information; I know they would love to hear from you.

Below you will find nearly all of the information you will need to make your year at HSC great! Should you need anything, please feel free to call or email!

Drop Off Procedure
  • Doors will open 10 minutes before classes begin so children can get items put away and be ready when class begins.
  • Students will put their lunch in the buckets located in or near the lunch room
  • Children are expected to be in class by the start time (8:40 – Lakewood 8:30 – Westminster 9:15 – Evergreen) so teachers can begin on time.
  • Parents can walk students to their first period class.
  • Parents can drop off without coming in (please do not let your child cross the parking lot by themselves).
  • First period teachers will sign them in.

USE EXTREME CAUTION IN THE PARKING LOT – WE ALL HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER TO KEEP EVERY CHILD AND EVERY FAMILY SAFE!!! 

Pick Up Procedure
  • We offer both a walk-up and a drive-through option for afternoon pickup. We encourage families to do whatever works best for them.  
  • Pickup times vary by day/location. Lakewood Mondays – 3:20, Westminster Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 2:50, Evergreen Thursdays, 3:20, and Lakewood Fridays, 2:50. 
  • Parents should pick up within 10 minutes of dismissal time. Please be prompt as we only rent the churches for a small amount of time after dismissal, and keep in mind too that the teachers and directors have kids and families that they are excited to get home to after a wonderful day with your kiddos!  
  • Children will be dismissed to parents or others the parent has authorized by their enrollment paperwork or an email to the director. 
  • If the teacher does not know the person who is picking up, they may ask for ID (so please warn those on your pick up list).
Pick up procedures by location:   Lakewood          Westminster          Evergreen
We love to see the community building that happens after school on the playground so after you pick them up, feel free to let your kids hang out and play for a while after school so you can meet and visit with other homeschooling parents!

Medical
Students requiring medication (including Tylenol, inhalers, Benadryl, & Epi Pens) will need a completed form prior to medication being allowed at school. This form must be completed by your doctor and is available from Ms. Bobbi or Ms. Kelly. The Home School Connection cannot give any medication without a completed medication form. Students are not allowed to carry medication unless such an agreement has been made between the student, parents, doctor, our Nurse, and the director. If you need a medication form, talk to Ms. Kelly prior to the first day of school so we’re all set when school begins! Asthma          Allergies

All Medications (including over the counter – read more here)

What should my child bring to HSC each week? 

Before you send anything to HSC, please make sure all items are labeled with your child’s (or family) name, Lost & Found is donated every 4 weeks!

  • Snack (Kindergartners should bring 2 snacks) * **
  • Lunch * **
  • Water Bottle – Help protect property & make sure the water bottle does not leak! Water Bottles should be filled with WATER! Please no juice, milk (oh, those get gross!), or any other beverages.
  • Weather appropriate clothes (we will play outside for recess as often as possible so please help your child dress appropriately!)
  • Tennis Shoes if required by one of your child’s classes.
  • Other class-specific required items (instruments, cameras, etc.)

*Microwaves, silverware, plates, napkins, etc. are NOT available for student use so please make sure your child’s lunch and snack are ready to eat!

**Our Evergreen campus is a nut-free facility. Please be respectful of this policy and refrain from sending your child with items that contain nuts.

All other schools supplies will be provided by The Home School Connection.

From time to time, teachers may request materials (usually recycled) for a project – make sure you check out the newsletter each month to find out what they need!

Toys, Mp3 Players, Cell Phones, Etc.

Leave them at home! 

Over the years at HSC & in classrooms, I have seen many of these very special items disappear, I don’t want this to happen to your child so they are not allowed at The Home School Connection. If a HSC staff member becomes aware of a student having one of these items, Ms. Bobbi will hold on to (to ensure safe-keeping) it until the end of the day. Students are welcome to use the HSC phone if they need to call a parent during the day. There may be times during the semester when a teacher requests these items for an activity in their classroom. Students who would like to participate in that activity must follow the guidelines given by the teacher.

Absences

If your child will be absent, please call or email the director no later than 9:45 on the day of the absence. While we know that HSC is supplemental to the education you are providing your children at home, many of our classes require steady attendance to be successful. If your child misses 3 (three) or more weeks in a semester without notification of the HSC Director, they will be unregistered from the program. If they would like to return to HSC, they will have to be reregistered at the next semester if there is space available. 

Expectations at The Home School Connection

Each year, students & teachers work together to design expectations for each class. All students will be included in & expected to follow these guidelines. Each teacher will let you know what their student’s created in their first newsletter. When students struggle to follow the expectations we will utilize the Recovery Process:

  1.    A kind reminder of the expectations
  2.    Recovery break (student is removed from the activity – in or outside of the classroom)
  3.    A visit to the director who will decide what actions need to be taken in order to ensure the individual’s success for the remainder of the day.
The Home School Connection expects everyone to “Respect the PONY: Property, Others, Nature, Yourself”
