Parent/Student Handbook

On behalf of the Somerset Academy South Homestead School staff, welcome to SoHo and the 2017-18 school year!  Whether new to the SoHo family or a returning Panther, we look forward to building a partnership between you and the school which will last for many years.  We are committed to making your child’s first years in school filled with positive and enriching experiences. Our staff is excited about working with your child and being, like you, an important advocate for your child and his/her learning.  We seek to make SoHo a joyful place for our children and their families.

The parent-student handbook has been written to provide important information concerning specific rules, policies, and procedures related to the safety and operation of our school. In order for SoHo to operate safely and efficiently, you and your child(ren) must be familiar with and abide by the expectations, procedures and rules outlined in this handbook.

Please refer to this handbook throughout the school year as a reference. It should provide the answers to most questions, but feel free to telephone us or stop by the school office should you need more information.  If you feel that there is information that needs to be included in this online handbook, please let us know.

We believe that your child’s success in school is dependent upon good communication between school and home. We encourage your participation and invite you to express your suggestions or concerns.
