Library Policies

Frontier Academy maintains two libraries, one for elementary students and the other at the secondary school. Kindergarten students may check out two books per visit; all other students may check out three items per visit. Books check out for two weeks, magazines check out for one week. Students with overdue books are not allowed to check out additional books until all items have been returned. Lost books must be paid in full before report cards are issued each quarter.

Staying Informed

Each Monday (or whatever day is the first day of the school week), your elementary child(ren) will bring home a folder containing their recent school work, notes from the teachers and general school information or other announcements. This is the best method for keeping in touch with both your child’s progress and events at the elementary school. The secondary school does not have “Monday folders” but instead rely more on notifying students, email notifications to parents (sign up at our website today), the school website, newsletters (comes out every other Monday), and fliers which can be found on the counter in the front office.

OPT

The Organization of Parents and Teachers. All Frontier parents belong to this group. Both the elementary & secondary O.P.T.'s hold monthly, Tuesday evening meetings. Watch the newsletter for date and time reminders or check out the school calendar. Attending O.P.T. meetings not only counts toward your 4 hour a month per family volunteer commitment, it's also a great way to stay informed and to get involved.

Booster Club

The Frontier Wolverine Booster Club meets the first Monday evening of each month at 6:30 PM. This action-oriented group of parents, staff, and community members support all high school and middle school interscholastic athletics and activities including the performing arts. Get involved in the Booster Club by purchasing a membership, volunteering to help, or attending a meeting. Watch newsletter and calendar for dates and times.

School Directory

A comprehensive school directory is published every October for the current school year. A directory form will be sent home at the beginning of the school year for families wishing to be included in the directory. The directory includes a business section for Frontier families who own businesses. If you'd like to advertise in the directory, please indicate so on the directory form or call Laura Chafin, Director of Development, at 330-1780 x 2007.

Snow Days & Late Start Days

If District 6 calls for a "late start" day during the school year Frontier Academy will also start late (9:30 am secondary and 10:00 am elementary).
