Open House Today!

Please see the schedule below for open house times; your family only needs to attend one session, please enter from the big gates next to the office and not the office door. This is a time for families to meet your student’s teachers and administrative team, learn about the San Tan Way, drop off classroom supplies, and to see your child’s classroom. There will be additional parking during these times at the Gateway Fellowship Church just North of the school, we ask that you please use this area as overflow, if you need to park in the community, please park only on the North or East sides of the road.

Morning Drop-Off
Gates will be opened at 8:20 a.m. Students are able to enter at this time and should walk to their classrooms during the first week of school. Students dropped off at school without parental supervision before 8:20 a.m. will be signed in for the before school program offered each morning from 7:20 a.m. – 8:20 a.m. for a fee of $15 per day. Forms for prescheduling before school care are available in the front office. Please do not park in the drive-lane at any time, parents should pull all the way forward and pull out immediately after students have exited the vehicle on the right hand side.

Afternoon Pick –Up
All families will be given a pick-up card on Open House night. This card should be placed on the right hand side of the vehicle window, in a location easily visible to San Tan staff. As parents pull through the drive lane for dismissal, anyone coming early will be asked to drive through the lane again at their assigned time. Students will only be allowed to get into vehicles that have the pick-up card. Picking up students without a pick-up card requires the adult picking up the student to park and go into the front office to provide identification. Students will meet the adult picking them up in the office. The students will be ready for pick-up in the drive lane at the following times:

½ Kinder – noon

Montessori Kinder and Elementary – 3:15

K-1 – 3:15

2-3 – 3:25

We have even more ways to get updates and reminders;

For cell phone text message updates: Text STLC to 411247 for school updates and information.

For Facebook users: The San Tan Charter School Family Connection page was created as a way for families to connect with other families, keep up to date about upcoming events and promotions, learn about passive giving opportunities, and keep up to date with the activities our FEC (Family Engagement Committees) are currently working on. Families will have the opportunity to communicate and connect through this page. For example, if you are in need of a carpool you can post on the Family Connection Page asking if anyone would be willing to carpool from your area. The school and FEC committees will be able to post about upcoming events or contests that could bring free money to the school. We look forward to having the STCS Family Connection Page be a positive and fun way for families to connect with one another.
