Fall sports – Soccer and Volleyball for grades 5 – 8 will begin soon. Please be aware your child will need to have a sports physical completed prior to the first game. The doctor’s office will provide you the form you will need to submit to Zion. A Sports Contract is also required for participation in sports. Forms are available in the school lobby or are attached to this email. As soon as schedules for practices and games are ready they will be passed out to players and posted online.

All students who are not picked up by 3:15 pm each day will be sent to daycare and charged accordingly. If a student is attending a before or after school program (band, Science Matters, and sports) any of their siblings not picked up by 3:15 pm will be sent to daycare and charged accordingly.

Please note that once the 8:00 am bell rings all parents/visitors must exit the building. Parents/others who are scheduled to volunteer must check in at the front office prior to volunteering. We do not allow parents/visitors to simply hang out on campus during school hours. (8am-3pm) Following these policies ensures that Zion is able to provide a safe, secure place for our students and staff.

Again, welcome back to school!
