School’s academic performance and school grade:

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the nature of the disabilities of our students, FACE has opted out of the state academic performance and school grade. FACE continues to provide exceptional service to our students on a day to day basis and has either met or superseded all district goals related to our school in the past year.

Information for Parents

  • – Solid color polo shirt.
  • – Solid color slacks, shorts, or skirts worn at the waist, or jumpers. Baggy or tight clothing, overalls, jeans (unless there is a designated casual day), or pants or shorts that sag will not be allowed. Shorts, skirts and jumpers must be of a length that is no more than three (3) inches above the knee.
  • – Closed-toed shoes or sneakers. Shoelaces must be tied and Velcro flaps must be fastened.
  • – No hooded garments. If weather necessitates, jackets or other types of outerwear may be worn to school but must be removed once inside the building.
  • – Jewelry or accessories that distract from the learning process will need to be removed and given to the teacher.
  • – Hats or head coverings are not allowed inside the building.

Morning Care is available for students Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. – 7:45 a.m. Morning care space is limited. It is offered on a first come first serve basis and priority is given to students enrolled in the morning care program from previous years.

There is a 2 week waiting period for new students. After 2 weeks staff will be able to identify students eligible for morning care. Students that engage in high frequency of maladaptive behaviors will not be permitted to attend until the behaviors are infrequent or have met mastery criteria of their behavior intervention plan (BIP).

Fees for 2020-2021 morning care are as follows:

  • – $25 non-refundable registration fee (only to be paid if accepted to attend)
  • – $25 a week
  • – Payment is due monthly on the first Monday of the month, for the entire month.
  • – Fees are not pro-rated for absences, holidays, etc. (this includes missing an entire week)

Registration forms are available upon request in the main office.

In order to volunteer, you MUST contact the main office at (813) 985-3223.
