We encourage parents to visit our school and have lunch with their child. These visits should be
arranged in advance with the child’s teacher. When you visit our school, please make sure you
have scheduled an appointment with your child’s teacher. We protect our instructional time and
want to provide the best for your child.
When you visit, please report to the front office, always have your ID with you and be prepared
to sign into our computer system. We have a system that is in place in every CMS school that
requires visitors to present their ID and register each time they visit. It is required to wear the
name badge that is printed out during your visit at our school.
Our school hours are 7:15-3:15 Class begins promptly at 7:45 and dismissal begins at 2:45.
Please know that students cannot be dropped off before 7:15 AM in the morning. There is not
an adult to receive your child.
Students cannot be released before 1:30 for early dismissal
Any person picking up a student must be on the student’s emergency card and must be
prepared to show a picture ID.
We will not release children to any person not on the authorized pick up list.
Whitewater Academy is part of a program called Community Eligibility Provision Program. All
students can eat breakfast and lunch each day with NO CHARGE. Parents are not required to
complete any forms for this. Students are welcome to bring their own lunch; however, if they do
not have their lunch, they must receive a school lunch.
If your child has allergies or special dietary needs, please complete the approriate paperwork
with our Cafeteria Manager, Mr. Holman.
