Frequently Asked Questions
How can I find out what's going on at the school?
We use a number of tools to communicate with our families. Our website is a valuable source of a variety of information. The ELCA News page has information about current events updated weekly. It also includes the Morning Announcements made by Administration each morning to keep parents up-to-date on a daily basis. A Calendar of events is located on our Home page that allows you to search by month. Monthly enewsletters are emailed to families at the beginning of each month (if you are not receiving these and would like to subscribe, please email firstname.lastname@example.org). Finally, school-specific emails are sent to families to provide important details for events pertaining to certain grades.
Does the school have any specific events whose purpose is to connect families with administration?
Communicating with our families is a top priority for our academy. We start the year off with a Back to School Day, which is a time to fellowship with our families, participate in an All School Worship service and dedicate the school year in prayer. Mid-year, we schedule a State of School Address, which is a time to celebrate accomplishments of the school year, and inform families of upcoming plans, including re-enrollment information for the next school year. Quarterly, the PTF hosts Parent Coffees which allow families to join with administration in informational gatherings and Q&A sessions. Dates for these events may be found on the Calendar.
Where do I go to drop off and pick up my child?
To minimize traffic congestion in the mornings and afternoons, we have designated drop off and pick up areas for the different schools. To learn more about your child's school car pool plan, please view our car pool videos. If you have multiple children in different schools, please contact the specific school's secretary to work out the best plan for your family.
What are the uniform requirements for different grades?
Uniform requirements vary between the different schools. Uniform information and guidelines are listed on the school store's webpage. As a convenience to our families, all uniform needs may be purchased at the ELCA School Store.
My child lost his hoodie - how can I find it?
Misplaced items are bound to happen in all environments. To aid in recovering lost items, we encourage families to label all items of clothing and supplies. When found, the items can promptly be returned to students. Non-labeled items are taken to school secretaries where they are kept for a short period of time. Please contact your school secretary if your child has misplaced a belonging.
Can I see my child's grades online?
Netclassroom, provided as a quicklink on our website home page, allows parents to see their child's average as well as specific grades on assignments. Additionally, parents may view their child's class schedule, attendance, conduct history and billing statement.
What if I'm having problems logging into Netclassroom?
If you can't log into Netclassroom, email email@example.com detailing your problem and you will receive an email in response with the solution.
What if I have questions regarding my statement?
Questions regarding your statement or financial account should be directed to the Business Office.
My child mentioned that I need to complete a form for an event - where can I find it?
Although forms specific to a particular class may have to be received from the teacher, a Forms page is located under the Parent tab of our website to assist parents in finding the forms they may need.
How can I get in touch with a specific teacher, staff or administrator?
Administrator and staff phone numbers are listed on the Contact Info page of our website. If you need to contact a teacher, email them for a quick response. Email addresses may be found on the teacher's web page. Inquiries that need immediate attention may be addressed by calling your school's secretary.
Can I eat lunch with my child?
Parents are more than welcome to join their child for lunch. Although we ask that no outside food be brought into the Eagle Cafe, parents may purchase lunch on campus and enjoy the food buffet bars we offer. If you are planning on dining with us, please call Ms. Vicki Martin at 770-957-2927 to allow us to prepare accordingly.
How can I get up-to-date information on athletic events that have been re-scheduled?
To get the latest game times and directions to athletic events, visit the individual team pages under our Athletics tab.
What opportunities are there for me to get involved at the school?
Our parents are a huge part of what makes ELCA different than other schools. Involved parents not only provide invaluable assistance in enriching our programs, but more importantly, support their child's sense of self-worth by showing that they care about the child's experience. We welcome our Early Learning and Elementary parents to assist in the classrooms. Parents at all grade levels are encouraged to join our auxiliary organizations - PTF, Fine Arts Patrons, and Athletic Booster Club. Other individual opportunities are available as well. If there is a specific area you are interested in serving, please contact that area's administrator to get "plugged in."
If you have a question that is not addressed above, email firstname.lastname@example.org - we look forward to assisting you!
