Assumption Regional Catholic School 2017-2018 School Year
Welcome and thank you again for registering your student(s) here at Assumption Regional Catholic School for the 2017-2018 school year. We are looking forward to the new school year and to having you and your student(s) here as new members of our Assumption Family!
Please go to the school website (www.arcsgalloway.org) to find the following additional information:
· Summer work for your student(s)
As the new school year approaches, we wanted to provide you with a few helpful suggestions to make your first few weeks as easy as possible.
Summer Assignment/Supply List: Summer assignments and grade level supply list have been posted on the school website and is also included in this email. All assignments must be completed by the start of school (For grades 1-8).
Lunch Account: The opportunity to purchase lunch is available for students in grades PreK4 – 8 each full day of school. We are excited to announce that ARCS is working with Renweb and updating our lunch program. Once details are finalized parents will have the ability to purchase and pay for lunch online for their students. As soon as this update is complete, we will be in touch!
Transportation: During the first week of school please write your child’s teacher a note indicating what your student(s) usual means of transportation will be (Car Rider, Bus Rider or After Care). If this changes, please contact the front office by calling (609) 652-7134 before 1:45!
Bus Riders – You will be receiving a notification from Atlantic County Special Services prior to school starting. This will indicate your student’s pick-up/drop-off time and the location of the bus stop. For the first two weeks of school make sure your child has their bus slip with them to avoid any confusion. If you have questions please contact Atlantic County Special Services by calling (609) 625-8061 or contact the front office.
School Hours: Before Care begins at 7:00am (this is a flat fee of $3)…The school doors open at 7:35…students grades K – 8 must be in the gym no later than 7:50 or they will be considered late (PreK4 students can be dropped off at this time also). PreK 3 and PreK 4 normal drop off begins at 8:20am – 8:40am…If you arrive after 8:40am please bring your child to the front office and they will be taken to their classroom.
PreK Drop-off times:
· PreK3 and PreK4 can be dropped of at the following times
- 7:00 – 7:35am is a flat fee of $3
- 7:35-7:50am they can be brought to the gymnasium for morning assembly with the school community. There is no charge for this and the students will walk to the classroom with their teachers for free play until the remainder of the students arrive.

Early dismissal – If you need to pick-up your child before the official end of the school day, please make sure to contact the office before 2:00pm. For the safety of our students, students are NOT permitted to be picked-up after 2pm when we begin the dismissal process. This will help avoid any confusion.

Students can purchase a snack in the after care program or bring one from home. During noon dismissal days please make sure to pack a lunch for your child.
Additional Dates to Remember:
