The school has a dress code. Having children in similar dress fosters a sense of community, provides an ease to families in school preparedness, and allows students to focus on their learning and not on material things. The School’s dress code for the 2017-2018 school year requires students to wear a solid colored red, white or blue collared shirt with short or long sleeves. Students may wear navy blue, black or khaki pants and skirts throughout the year. Children may wear shorts to school through November 1 and again after March 15. Standard attire is available at numerous retail stores, including Target, Walmart, and Land’s End.
Yes, the Episcopal School is committed to being accessible to working families and provides after-care each school day to any child enrolled at the school. Aftercare hours will be 3:15 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. There is a one time enrollment fee of $30. The fee for after care is $15 a day per child and $65 per week per child. Families receiving financial aid will pay a proportional rate to their tuition.
It is our hope that Episcopal will at some point be able to provide transportation to designated locations. For now, families are responsible for getting their children to and from school.
Absolutely. It is the school’s belief that a dynamic arts program is essential for full expression. Led by an experienced faculty, Episcopal offers its students a balanced curriculum in the performing, musical and visual arts.
Episcopal will not offer a lunch program for the 2017-18 school year. Families are asked to send students to school with lunch. Families who cannot provide lunch for their child regularly are encouraged to be in contact with the school to establish a lunch program.
Yes. The school will offer field trips throughout the year to enrich each child’s learning experience. Families will be notified by the child’s teacher of any planned travel, and a permission form will be sent home with each student.
Yes! We do not want Episcopal to be cost prohibitive for any family. Need-based financial aid is available for families that qualify on a first-come, first-serve basis. All requests go through a third party agency, and all details of the process are confidential. We encourage any family who might be in need of financial assistance to apply by visiting www.sssbynais.org/parents. We are happy to work with families who would like guidance in filling out the proper paperwork.
