Student Morning Drop-Off Procedures:

Arrival Times:

The entrance doors will be opened each morning at 8:15 AM.  Students may enter at the below entrances until 8:30 AM.  Once the doors are closed, all students will have to enter at the main entrance on Cayuga Street.

In order to allow proper distancing this year, HPCA will utilize four entrances for entrance in the morning.  Please see below for the appropriate entrance:

  • Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and 8th Grade:  Enter through the door by the kindergarten classroom (on Cayuga Street).

  • 1st, 3rd, 4th Grades: Enter through the courtyard (on Cayuga Street). 

  • 2nd and 5th Grades:  Enter through the door on the 6th Street side of the main building.

  • 6th and 7th Grades: Enter through the office door (under the "Hunting Park Christian Academy" sign on Cayuga Street).

Students must maintain proper distance while waiting to enter the building.  Before entrance, students will have their temperature checked with a non-contact, infrared thermometer.  Students must wear a face mask to enter the building.  Parents should wait until their child has been cleared to enter the building before leaving.
