CFK T-Shirts/Cinch Backpacks

CFK is a college experience; parents are encouraged to familiarize their child with the location of their classes and the best route to walk between classes, prior to the start of class. During the sessions, staff wearing CFK VESTS will be centrally located to help direct students at the start of and between classes. With over 200 students per session, it is not possible for the staff to individually walk each student to their second class. The “buddy system” is used for all bathroom breaks during class. If they must, encourage your student to use the bathroom during class time and not between classes. Please call the CFK office if your student will be absent or picked up early. We track all absences.

Student Behavior
It is expected that the students enrolled in the CFK program are respectful of other students, the instructors, staff and the campus facilities.  Student behavior that is disruptive to the learning environment will result in two warnings and parent notification.  Further disruption will result in dismissal. Refunds will not be given.
