What happens if my child gets sick during a school day?

There will always be a nurse or a trained health aide available for students at Country Place. If your child becomes ill during the day, he or she should report to the school office. The health office staff will notify parents of students who become ill at school to pick up their children as soon as possible. We do not allow students to leave the campus without school permission, so we ask that you make arrangements to pick up your ill or injured child as promptly as possible.

How much homework is required for Country Place students?

We believe homework can be a valuable learning activity that can help your child reinforce skills, develop self-discipline and responsibility, and learn how to use time wisely. It is also a great opportunity for parents to become involved in and aware of what their children are learning.

So that students are not overburdened with excessive amounts of homework, we suggest the following guidelines:

  • K–3: Twenty minutes, four (4) days a week
  • 4–6: Forty-five minutes, four (4) days a week
  • 7–8: Sixty minutes, four (4) days a week

Is it okay to bring treats to my child’s class on special occasions?

Our policy at Country Place is that any food brought into the classroom for snacks and parties must come from a commercial source and cannot be homemade. All items should be individually wrapped, but items such as cookies or cupcakes from a bakery can be served by an adult wearing disposable gloves. We ask that you contact your student’s teacher before the occasion to schedule arrangements.
