DHA SCHOOL DAY BASICS


Attendance: To get the most out of the program, students should plan on attending each school day.

Dress: 

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.

Please follow these guidelines when choosing school dress / attire:

  1. Clothing should be modest.  
    • Refrain from wearing clothing with inappropriate skin exposure including shirts with low necklines or shirts showing the midriff.
    • Shorts / skirts must be finger-tip length.
    • Girls may wear tank tops with straps at least two finger tips in width.
    • Tights and leggings may be worn, but only with dresses, shorts, or shirts long enough to cover to mid-thigh. 
    • Undergarments must not show.
    • The following is not permitted: clothes with holes, and any cut, ripped, unhemmed, or cut-off clothing that results in inappropriate skin or undergarment exposure.
  2. Clothing must be honoring to God.  Clothing that advertises products dealing with or having references to profanity, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, sex, violence, or representing weapons or gangs or slogans that are suggestive or have double meanings will not be permitted.
  3. Hats may not be worn inside the building during the school day or at after-school activities.  This includes stocking caps, scarves, bandanas, hoods, and other headwear, unless approved by staff.  Hair styles and hair color, which are distracting to the learning environment, are at the director’s discretion. 

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.

Check out us out on Facebook! Have fun connecting and communicating with other DHA families.
