School Handbook

Our handbook is in the process of being revised, so it is not available for download at this time. Below are some areas that aren't expected to change much and are of immediate interest for prospective students.

LUNCHES

A student’s diet has a direct effect on his/her ability to perform well in school. Choose foods with good nutrition that are as close to their natural state as possible.

Lunches are not to contain unclean meats (as defined in Leviticus 11) or caffeinated beverages.

All silverware, plates, bowls, etc., must be provided by the student. Each student is responsible for cleaning up after themselves when they use the classroom microwave and/or the school refrigerator.
