Parents

At Wilberforce, parent involvement is an integral part of the school community. Throughout the year, Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) serves to support the school, hosting events that build lasting friendships, create memories, and foster a sense of fellowship. We hope that parents and caregivers will consider attending PTF events, such as the Parent Book Study (first Monday of the month), Parent Prayer (8:30am every Monday), PTF meetings (first Thursday of the month), and more. We desire to support our school through spiritual enrichment, community building, and service.

PTF meetings occur on the first Thursday of each month. This is a great way to meet other parents, hear from our head master and others about what is happening at Wilberforce, and learn how you can get involved. We also co-host many special events, such as Coffee & Conversations. Please watch the calendar for more opportunities!

FAQs

School Logistics

What are school hours?

School hours are 8:10am-3:05pm. Doors open in the morning at 7:45am.

Parents may pick up students before 3:15pm after school. If parents are late, a late fee is applied (for Lower School parents only). After 3:15pm, students are sent to after-school programs.

Do you offer transportation to and from school?

Wilberforce does not offer transportation but actively supports carpooling by guiding parents in similar zip codes to arrange carpool. (Please refer to the Student Handbook.)

Do you offer any after-care?

Wilberforce offers Homework Club and Study Hall for all grades, which concludes at 4:30pm. The Explorers Bridge Program is open to Explorers 1 and 2 students. (Please refer to the Student Handbook.)

How are parents notified of school delays and closures?

We notify parents in four ways: live cell phone call, text message, email, and pop-up notifications on our website. Please ensure that we have your accurate contact information on ParentsWeb.

What is your cell phone policy?

We have a no cell phone policy during school hours. However, if you need to contact your student during the day, please call or email the Front Desk. (Please refer to the student handbook.)

What is your Admissions process?

Please refer to our Admissions FAQs page.

Orientation & School Year Preparation

Who attends Orientation?

For Lower School Orientation, both parents and students can benefit from seeing classrooms, meeting teachers, and hearing about our procedures. Siblings are welcome too.

For Middle and Upper School Orientation
, both new and returning students attend. Parents attend separate information sessions, where they are able to meet or interact with parents and faculty.


Why are there Parent-Teacher Conferences before school begins?

For all Lower School students and Class 6 (E1-C6), conferences enable us to hear about your child, and are for you to learn classroom expectations. Teachers will contact parents to schedule a conference in late August. (Please note: conferences are for parents only; please make alternative arrangements for your children.)


Do I need to purchase school supplies?

LS students do not need any supplies or books; we provide all supplies needed for the school day.

MS students
are expected to have their own writing utensils and filler paper. We supply books, notebooks, a student planner, and a binder with dividers.

US students
are expected to supply their own materials: binders, notebooks, paper, writing utensils, etc. (A recommended list is shared prior to the fall.) We supply all curricular books, a student planner, and lend school laptops for Grades 11 and 12.

School Health, Sickness & Attendance Policies

When should I keep my student home from school?

Students are expected to come to school healthy, well rested, and ready for class. To avoid infecting others, students should not be in school until they are symptom-free. If your student is staying home from school due to illness, please notify the school by calling or emailing the front desk. (Please refer to the student handbook for a list of symptoms.)

How does the school handle nut allergies?

At Wilberforce, we are committed to building a safe environment for all students, particularly for those who have peanut and nut allergies. While we are not a nut-free school, we implement a series of procedures to reduce unnecessary risks. (Please refer to the Peanut and Nut Allergy Safety document in ParentsWeb.)

Volunteer

Many of our events are made possible with the help of our volunteers, such as GrandFriends' Day, Fine Arts Day, and more. Please contact Jee Park to learn more about how to get involved and earn Parent Service Hours.

Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people."
