Dismissal Times and Sibling Care
Scholars, not attending an afterschool provider, must be picked up within 30 minutes of their dismissal time.
Scholars not picked up by their scheduled dismissal time will proceed to Global Tech Academy. Parents will need to park and pick up scholars from GTA and pay appropriate fees.
Sibling care, for the half hour between the lower school dismissal time and the upper school dismissal time, is offered for free as a courtesy for families with multiple scholars with different dismissal times. This allows for families to come at one dismissal time to pick up all of their scholars. Sibling care is only for siblings.
