The study center is normally open and available to all students (including PASCAL students) on Thursdays and Fridays as well as other online days who would like to study independently, need some extra help, need a break from home or a variety of other reasons. Normal school behaviors are expected, and students who are on campus over lunchtime should bring their own lunches. Parents/guardians must sign in their student and pick them up by 3:30 pm when the center closes. The study center however is not usually an adequate long term solution. Enlisting the help of extended family members, coops with other families and flexible work solutions are some other approaches that CVA families have used in the past.
When the study center is occasionally not available, families will be notified in the weekly electronic newsletter, News from the Village.
