When you arrive for your parent duty, come to the main entrance on Kensington Street and check in at the Office.
Our Intercessors meet regularly on Wednesdays, 9-10 am, to pray for our children and our community. All parents are welcome to join. Please contact Janey Smith for details.
If you need help logging hours, use the link on our Parents page.
If you’re looking for ways to help, check out the Core Hours sign-ups or ask a teacher.
Be sure to avoid blocking driveways and intersections during afternoon pick-up. This is courteous to our neighbors and required by Arlington County Code.
If you are looking for a carpool, take a look at the map of our families linked on our Parents page. And always, drive carefully in the neighborhood. We want to be good neighbors.
Need to learn or refresh your memory of our school practices and guidelines? Find our Handbook online on our Parents page. Need to know the phone number, address, or email address of a fellow parent? Directory information may be accessed anytime on our FACTS Family Portal.
Because parents are able to drive on field trips, we are able to take many more trips than if we rented buses. However, our insurance requires that each year every parent driver must submit a copy of his or her current DMV record, and a copy of his or her driver’s license and insurance information. Steps for accessing the VA DMV website are posted under “Other Forms” on the Parents page of our website.
Prepare now by collecting the needed items and turning them in to the Office. If you’re driving on a field trip, submit your documents at least 3 days prior to the scheduled field trip.
Please also note that our insurance carrier does not allow parents to drive children (other than their own) on field trips if their driving record does not meet our insurance requirements. If your record does not allow you to drive, you are still welcome to ride along as a chaperone for field trips. We cannot make exceptions for parents to drive if we do not have their up-to-date information, or if their driving record does not meet our insurance carrier’s requirements. Receipts for parking and tolls may be submitted to teachers for reimbursement. Thank you for driving our children as they explore God’s world.
