Weekly Meetings

We meet on a weekly basis on Mondays during the school year.  To fill the need of accommodating more homeschool families in the Texas Panhandle area, we now offer two sessions. The Morning Session will be from 8:45 AM - 11:50 AM and will be geared toward elementary aged kids through 5th Grade, and the Afternoon Session will be from 12:45 PM - 3:50 PM and will be geared toward middle school and high school kids.

MORNING SESSION: 8:45 AM - 11:50 AM

  • Starts at 8:45 AM with everyone together for announcements, and then everyone breaks into their different classes, which start at 9:00 AM

    • Note: at some time during the semester all morning families are required to rotate being on set up, which begins at 8:15 AM, in addition to the two required jobs normally assigned

  • ​There are three different 50-minute class periods:

    • Nursery and Preschool: only available for children who have older siblings in the co-op

    • Pick up will be at 3:50 PM when the last class is dismissed - your family will be considered late if your students are not picked up by 4:00 PM​

    • After more than one late pickup, your family will lose the privilege of leaving your older children and will be required to stay on campus the entire session for the remainder of the semester
