Dear Acorn Parents:  If you have already made your first payment, thank you. If not, this is a reminder that your first payment is due by July 11th. Please see the tuition page for the amounts due. If your child is enrolled in the new Thursday afternoon Adventure Club, please add $100/month to your amount.

We will be in the office this Wednesday and Friday, July 6 & 8, 11:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. to receive credit card payments. Other times may be arranged if this is not convenient.  If you prefer, you can mail payment by check, and receive a cash/check discount.

Please mail or deliver your first payment, due by July 11th, to The Acorn, 3501 Broadway, SATX 78209. Please remember that once paid, your July payments are non-refundable, no exceptions. If circumstances have changed and you are not able to send your child to The Acorn, please let us know immediately.

If you prefer to pay the entire 1st Semester (annual fees, Sept. - Dec. tuition) pay this amt. by July 11th

A download of the Health Form is available on our website – “print out your forms”. Requirements have changed our procedure for collecting health forms. For those who had a complete health form on file at the school during the 2015-16 school year, you will not need one at the beginning of this coming school year in September; but you will need to complete an updated one if your child had a summer birthday, or during the month of his/her next birthday during the school year. Children new to The Acorn will need a health form completed before school starts. Please make an appointment with your child’s pediatrician and make sure that your child’s immunization and hearing/vision screening requirements are met. State law requires that all children 4 years of age or older have proof of an ANNUAL vision & Hearing screening. Texas Childcare Licensing and the State Health Department audit our records, and the state requires that a child have their completed Health Form on file with the school in order to participate in the program.

Head Teachers will be calling in early August to set a date for your home visit. If you will be traveling during this time, please call the school office and let us know, so the teachers can get in touch with you at a convenient time.

We will email you when the remaining paperwork to complete your child’s file is available on our website for you to download and print out. Please complete all these forms, along with the health form, before your child’s home visit, and have them ready to give to your child’s teacher.

Thanks! We look forward to a great 16-17 school year! Classes start Tuesday, September 6th. Rich, Jo, and Wendy
