Gaarde Christian School is a closed campus and students are expected to remain on the Gaarde Christian campus, from their time of arrival until the end of the day. Students leaving during the school day for any reason require parent permission in advance of leaving, and must be signed out by the parent at the front office. Any exceptions to this policy require administrative approval. Failure to sign out when leaving constitutes an unexcused absence. Any student leaving and then returning to school during the school day must be signed back in by the parent at the front office upon returning to school.
