The Flag of the United States of America shall be appropriately displayed at all schools in keeping with customary and accepted practices. Students shall show proper respect for their country's emblem.
The Pledge of Allegiance to the flag shall be recited at the beginning of each day in each public school classroom, led by a student in the classroom as assigned by the classroom teacher on a rotating basis.
At least once per year, students shall be instructed that participation in the Pledge is voluntary and not compulsory, and students should show respect for any student who chooses not to participate. A student may be excused from reciting the Pledge upon written request from the student’s parent or legal guardian. Discourteous treatment of the flag or other national symbols shall be cause for disciplinary action.
A message from the Food Service Director:
September 10, 2020
Gateway Preparatory Academy would like to inform you that the USDA has approved free meals for students through the 2020-2021 school year.
Due to COVID-19 getting food deliveries have been a concern, so we will be serving free breakfast and lunch every day for only the students that are enrolled at Gateway Preparatory Academy, which includes our online and home school students. Online and home school students can still pick up their breakfast at 8:30-8:45 and their lunch at 12:45-1:00 by coming in the side gym doors after all the students have ate and gone to class.
Enrolled students are highly encouraged to still fill out a free/reduced application, so that when the funding runs out or December 31, 2020, you will be all set up. If you do have a negative balance before September 8, 2020 you will need to pay that amount.
If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call at 435-867-5558.
