Parent Nights are held on the third Tuesday of the month from 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM. The goal of the Parent Night is to provide encouragement and support to the parent community through lively discussions about child rearing and Christian education best practices. Some of the Parent Nights are dedicated to the recognition and celebration of the students’ progress. The evening ends with a potluck supper. Child care is provided during the discussion part of the program. The children join their parents for the potluck supper.
Report Card Conferences
Report cards are prepared four times in the academic year: November, January, April and June. Individual parent conferences are scheduled to take place in the first three marking periods soon after report cards are distributed. These conferences take the place of the parent meeting in that month. It is expected parents will sign up and attend all parent conferences.
Semi-Annual Parent Surveys
Parents are always welcome to communicate with the directors about any suggestions for improving the operation of the Academy. In addition, parents are given the opportunity to complete written surveys covering every aspect of school life. These surveys are completed in conjunction with report card conferences in November and April.
Emergency Closing and Inclement Weather
In the event of closure due to inclement weather or unforeseen emergency, parents will be notified of the closing by checking listings on News 8 WTNH for New Haven Public School closings and delays. Our school does not close in the middle of the day. If a storm develops after the school day has begun, parents are permitted to pick up their children at their own discretion. If the NHPS close early, bus transportation will also be canceled for All Nations, and our students will need to be picked up by their parents. An effort will be made by the Academy to communicate with parents any changes regarding bus transportation.
Confidential and sensitive information will be shared only with employees of the Academy who have a “need to know” in order to most appropriately and safely care for your child. Confidential and sensitive information about faculty, other parents and/or children will not be shared with parents as the Academy strives to protect everyone’s right of privacy. Confidential information includes, but is not limited to: names, contact information, disability information, and HIV/AIDS status or other health related information of anyone associated with the Academy.
Outside of the Academy, confidential and sensitive information about a child will only be shared when the parent of the child has given express written consent, except where otherwise provided for by law. Parents will be provided with a document detailing the information that is to be shared outside of the Academy, persons with whom the information will be shared, and the reason(s) for sharing the information.
