Students who eat breakfast at school may arrive at 7:40 a.m. Students who do not eat breakfast may arrive at school at 7:55 a.m. With that said, Taylor Hicks offers a before-school club to Taylor Hicks parents, called “Buck Club.”
Buck Club runs Monday through Friday. A Taylor Hicks staff member supervises students as early as 7:00 a.m. The club is held in the library (room 7). Students are able to work on homework, play board games, read quietly, draw, etc.
In order to participate in this club, a parent needs to fill out the permission form and return it to the office, or give it to the club supervisor the first day you use the club.
When you need to drop off your child early, park your car on the street or in a parking spot, walk your child to the library, sign your child into the club, and pay a dollar. Payment must be exactly a dollar, as the supervisor will not have change. You may not pay ahead of time. The dollar will directly pay the staff member’s club wage and provide money to buy games for students to play during Buck Club. It doesn’t matter what time you drop off your child—e.g., 7:00, 7:15, 7:20, etc.—the cost is a dollar per day. Students not eating breakfast will be released at 8:00 a.m. At this time, we have supervision on the playground. Students eating breakfast at Taylor Hicks will be released at 7:40 a.m. and go directly to the cafeteria.
Please note: A child’s positive behavior is a requisite for continued participation. We hope this opportunity will help parents who need child care prior to school. Thank you for your continued support and entrusting your child’s education at Taylor Hicks.
