"Having children who require medication during the day, it’s been a huge comfort knowing the nurse at Socrates Academy is both attentive to my children’s needs and excellent at communicating with me as a parent, as well as the teachers and staff. I feel comfortable knowing my children are in great hands every day."

- Rebecca P., Socrates Parent

How does Kindergarten staggered entry work?

Our staggered entry runs over two days helps our new Kindergarten students get acclimated to a new routine and allows our teachers to observe and test each student to determine classroom placement.  Generally there is a morning session and afternoon session.  The morning session will runs from 8:15 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and the afternoon session will runs from 12:00 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. each day.  Parents may walk scholars in for their session but we will run a mini-carpool at the end of each session so parents will come through the "kindergarten only" carpool line these two days and we will walk you through the process.  We appreciate your patience as it tends to move a little slow the first time around.   

 

  • If your child's last name is A - Di your staggered entry day will be Day 1 from 8:15am - 11:00am (Date will be posted on website calendar)

  • If your child's last name is Do-Mc your staggered entry day is Wednesday, August 24th from 12:00 p.m. - 2:45 p.m. (Date will be posted on website calendar)

  • If your child's last name Me-Re your staggered entry day will be Day 2 from 8:15 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. (Date will be posted on website calendar)

  • If your child's last name is Ri-Z your staggered entry day will be Day 2 from 12:00 p.m. - 2:45 p.m. (Date will be posted on website calendar)

When will I know who my child's teacher is?

Elementary scholars should receive a phone call from their homeroom teacher before Open House, and middle school scholars will receive their schedule in the Middle School the day of Open House.

Can I walk in to drop off my child?

Kindergarten parents only may walk their child in the first three days of school. After that time, we request that parents use carpool. We will have additional staff and volunteers the first weeks of school so that Kindergarten students are able to find their way to their classrooms.

Can I walk in to pick up my child?

All students must be picked up through carpool line. Parents are not permitted to walk in and remove students.

Is there snack?

Yes. All students are permitted to have snack at different times. Snack times are based on the child's grade and schedule.
