At Grande Innovation Academy, every instructional minute counts. Our teachers have a specific plan from the first greeting at Morning Meeting until the final bell of the day. The last half an hour of the school day is considered protected time on campus. No scholars may be picked up during this time. If at all possible, scholar dentist and doctor appointments should be scheduled for Fridays, and should never be scheduled during protected time. Parents should wait outside the gates until 4:00 to pick up their scholars from school.
