DHA SCHOOL DAY BASICS
Attendance: To get the most out of the program, students should plan on attending each school day.
Lunch: Students bring their lunch, clear drink, and utensils from home (please label). A note in the lunch box from parents and siblings is welcome and fun!
Backpacks: Students bring a backpack to collect and protect their items through the day.
Parent Communication: Communication is important to us. DHA communicates weekly by e-mail to enrolled families. We make every effort to share the exciting DHA activities, events and photos from your child’s school day with families. Teachers utilize our private parent Facebook pages by sharing photos and videos of activities, lessons, and experiments taking place in the classroom. Each enrolled family will receive a handbook outlining details and policies of our program.
Dress Code and Appearance:
Students should wear clothing that is conservative, modest, clean, and comfortable. Shoes appropriate for PE are still required as students will be participating in PE each school day. The determination of appropriate clothing is at the discretion of school administration. If we determine a student is in clothing not to our dress code standards, we will call the parents to bring a change of clothes.
Our desire is to honor God in all aspects of our lives, including our appearance. Students should be well-groomed and modestly dressed. Please follow these guidelines when choosing school dress / attire.
