DROP OFF & PICK UP POLICY/PROCEDURE

PARENTS, PLEASE REMEMBER: There is no stopping or dropping off in the street in front of the school or at the walk-way to the front door! For your safety and the safety of our other families, please pull around to the South side of the building where we have three lanes for drop-off and pick-up. If you would like your student to enter through the front, please park before dropping them off. You can use our lot, the Akdar Shriners lot, or the church lot (Vision Family Ministry) next door and have your students walk to the front door. We will have a student worker posted to direct traffic in the mornings as a reminder. We open our doors at 7:15 a.m. If you arrive prior to 7:15, please remain with your student until the doors are unlocked. A 15-minute “Parent Parking Only” space will be provided in the coming days for your convenience. We truly appreciate your cooperation with this policy.

ELECTRICAL HELP STILL NEEDED

For those “Electric Personalities” who were able to help us last Saturday, THANK YOU!  We accomplished a lot, but there is still a great deal of work to be done. PSO has approved ACA for a large rebate, but only after we complete the process of converting our lighting over to High Efficiency ballasts and bulbs. The materials are in and the process is now under way. To maximize our financial benefit, we are keeping the installation labor in-house. If you are adept at working with simple wiring and can commit the odd hour or two to assisting, please contact Mr. Ahrens at [email protected]   This is an ongoing, daily project, so you are welcome to schedule a time to assist on any day. Let us know if you can help.

“OKLAHOMA!” DVD’S

The dvd’s of the fall performance of “Oklahoma!” should be ready the first week of February.  If you would like to order one or more of these dvd’s, please contact the school office.  We need to know how many dvd’s to produce!  They will cost $20 each.  Those who pre-order and pre-pay will receive their dvd’s first!



WINTER WEATHER POLICY

The Inclement Weather/Snow Day policy we will adopt for the season is as follows: ACA will be focused on the ability of our families to safely navigate the roads and our parking lot.  ACA will remain openunless specifically noted on the school closings list on Channels 2, 6 and 23 and their websites. We will close the school when warranted if snow or ice would cause unsafe traveling conditions for our families. Low temperatures alone may not result in our closing the school. We recognize that this is a deviation from years past when we were tied specifically to the Tulsa Public Schools winter weather closing decisions.

We know that we will not be able to please everyone when these hard decisions need to be made and we appreciate your understanding.  Because snow & ice accumulation often differs north of Tulsa & south of Tulsa, if you have a student driver, please use your own discretion as to whether or not you feel they should be out on the roads.



“SCHOOL HOUSE ROCK” DVD’S

DVD’s of the ACA production of “School House Rock” are now available for purchase in the school office.  The dvd costs $20.00 and checks should be made payable to Kenneth Jones.
