updated for school year 2023-24

The Parent & Student Handbook may be revised from year to year, but the basic substance remains pretty much the same.  In addition to our Statement of Faith and General Information about Fourth Baptist Christian School, inside the Handbook you will find our school’s policies governing areas such as:  Absences, Academics, After School Care, Attendance & Tardies, Athletics, Cell Phone Usage, Conduct, Student Discipline, Dress Code, Extra-Curricular Activities, Family Emergencies, Field Trips, Financial Information, Illness Policies, International Students, Medical Appointments and Medications, Parent-Teacher Conferences, Special events, Textbooks, etc.

The Dress Code is typically updated from year to year to reflect the changing styles. We strive for a “business casual” dress appearance, especially for our 7 – 12 grades. Please read that section of our handbook carefully before purchasing school clothing.

Please read through the handbook with your child to make sure you understand and agree with our policies before you sign the Parent Partnership Agreement.  Signing the Parent Partnership Agreement indicates that you and your students have read and agree to abide by the policies and regulations stated therein.

Notice of Nondiscriminatory Policy as to Students – “Fourth Baptist Christian School admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.”
