All students participating in the Florida Voluntary Pre-K Program must attend school regularly.
All students are required to complete their 540 hours. The law is written that in order to re-ceive funds for the duration of the school year students must complete the last day of school. The VPK program only pays until the last day the child has attended. If your child misses the last day of school you will be billed the tuition that was declined to the school. All fees must be paid in full in order to participate in the graduation ceremony.
Absentee policy: A child must attend 80% of the school year in order to maintain their funding. Absences must not exceed 21 days for all students. Notes are not required, but the law states that there are no extenuating circumstances.
Please have your child to school on time. Classes begin at 8:45 a.m. If a child arrives 15 minutes after class begins they are considered tardy. If your child receives 3 tardies they will be given an absence. Non–compliance of the attendance policy will result in the loss of your VPK funding.
If you should lose your funding or misuse this privilege you will be required to pay a $110 registration fee, a $75 supply fee and the tuition owed to the school in order to remain a student of Wesley Christian Academy.
All VPK Parents/Guardians are required to sign in at the time of arrival. Each month you are required by Florida law to sign a “Student Attendance and Parental Choice Certificate" showing the days attended/absent. Please remember this is your responsibility and part of the requirements for the preschool to receive funds.
WCA reserves the right to dismiss a student that does not follow the guidelines set by the state of Florida and the WCA policies.
The following are make up dates that should be attended by all 3-day VPK students.
September 5th (Tuesday), October 17th (Tuesday) and January 16th (Tuesday).
