Next thing you should know about Golden Door Charter School is their uniform policy. At Golden Door they are very strict with uniforms. Each child is to come to school in their uniform daily. This means your child shall attend school in their proper uniform (varies from class grades) from head to toe. If your child is out of uniform, the school will contact you so that you can bring in the proper uniform for your child.
Food time! At Golden Door they provide breakfast and lunch for each child. Some may be eligible for free or reduced fare meals depending on the income eligibility guidelines provided on the Federal income chart. If you do not think you will qualify I would like to tell you the pricing for each meal. For a student that has to pay the full fare, breakfast will cost $1.35 and lunch will cost $2.50 daily. For a reduced fare student, breakfast will cost $.30 and lunch will cost $.40 daily. Students are not required to bring their lunch money with them. The school has a FSS PositiveID system in place; which is a system where your child’s finger will be recognized to uncover their account that you the parent sets up in the way of your choosing. This way, your child will be the only one who has access to their own meals, which in my opinion is great to hear.
The Golden Door Charter School has plenty more to offer, like their aftercare program and their anti-bullying policy. From what I can see, there’s something here to love for everyone.
