Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Roots and Wings a homeschool cooperative (co-op)?
In any homeschool co-op, the parents volunteer their time to make things run. We require one parent or caregiver to serve 6 - 50 minute sessions out of the 12 week semester. Each family will have an opportunity to chose the position(s). If you signed up to volunteer and cannot make it for any reason, it is YOUR responsibility to find a sub.
What are the ages of the students Roots and Wings serves?
Roots and Wings serves ages PreK - 12th grade.
*All PreK students are required to be 4 years of age and potty trained.
Do I have to register for all five hours?
No! Your kid(s) can register for one hour or all five. It is entirely up to you. Please note, however, that the study hall is only open to children over the age of 8. However, once here, all students MUST either be enrolled in a class, enrolled in a study hall OR with a parent or an appointed adult. No student will be allowed to be left unsupervised.
Can I drop off my kids if I'm not required to be there to volunteer?
Depends on their age. Children need to be 6 and over to be dropped off. However, once on campus and checked in, all students MUST either be enrolled in a class, enrolled in a study hall OR with a parent or an appointed adult. No student will be allowed to be left unsupervised.
