We currently operate two schools: One City Preschool (OCP) and One City Expeditionary Elementary School (OCEES).

ONE CITY Preschool

One City Preschool is not a Day Care. We are a Preschool. We focus on your child’s learning and development that leads to success in grade school and beyond, from the minute your child enrolls in our school.

ONE CITY  Elementary School

In our Expeditionary Elementary School, One City will maintain its commitment to offering a play-based learning program for our children in our 4K and Kindergarten classrooms. At the same time, our children will engage in two-types of project-based learning: teacher-led and child-led.

School Policies

Now that we are an official public charter school, attendance must be taken. Attendance is the first important key to your child’s school success and directly impacts our school’s public funding.

Attendance

  • The official school day begins at 8:15 am and ends at 5:00 pm.
  • Students will be marked tardy up to 8:45 am.
  • Any student who arrives after 8:45 am, without a legitimate doctor’s note, will be recorded as absent for the morning, but may remain for the rest of the day.
  • At 12:00 pm, attendance will be taken again.
  • Any student arriving after noon, up until 12:30 pm, will be marked tardy.
  • Students arriving after 12:30 pm will be marked absent for the afternoon but may remain for the rest of the day.
  • A pre-approved extended absence may be approved by the principal if the absence will be for more than 3 days. The form must be submitted before 4 weeks of the absence (birthday, family vacation, visa, passport, college visit.)
  • Other approved absences include illness, significant family emergencies (accidents, funerals, etc.), medical appointments (with a doctor’s note), extended illnesses (with a doctor’s note) religious holiday (with parent note), official severe weather warning.
  • Unexcused absences include car trouble or slow traffic, sleeping late, late parents.
  • All absences must be called into our main line (until our attendance line is established), 608.268.2004.
  • 4 or more unexcused absences in each trimester will require an investigation into truancy, pursuant to our truancy policy.
  • All students who arrive late must check-in at the front desk with Ms. Angelique, our Administrative Manager.

Drop-off/Pick-up

  • Students arrive between 8:00 am – 8:15 am.
  • Before and after school care is available; $25 for before school care and $50 for after school care. Any child arriving before drop-off time, 8:00 am, will be automatically assessed early care fees for that day.  Any child staying after 5:00 pm will be automatically assessed a fee for after school.
  • 4K: Parents escort their children to their classrooms where teachers will meet them.
  • 5K: Parents escort their children to the rear entrance and to the outside stairwell doors on the south side of the building. Please enter from the rear of the school.

  • We will have staff to guide you on where to enter the building on your child’s first day.

Parking

  • The loading zone in the front of the school must remain open. Parked cars will be warned and ticketed.
