Inclement Weather

A weather radio is maintained in the school office to alert the staff of any adverse weather conditions in our area. Horizon Christian School will be closed or dismiss early when the Gwinnett County schools do so. There may be occasion for the school to close when the county schools remain open due to power, water, parking or other adverse conditions. Parents will receive a text message or phone call.  Safety drills for tornado and fire will conducted on a regular basis.

Emergency Evacuation

Should it become necessary for students to be dismissed early from our building parents will be automatically dialed by our phone system to advise them of the dismissal and the circumstances for it.  Should a situation occur that requires our building to be “locked down” parents will be notified by our phone system telling them of the circumstances and when we expect children will be dismissed.

Scholastic Reading Club and Book Fairs

When ordering please enter the Horizon Christian School Class Activation Code H792C.

During the school year you will receive from your child's teacher Scholastic Reading Club flyers.  These flyers offer to you exception value and selection of educational and fun reading material and other school related supplies.  You may either order from the flyer or go to Scholastic's Reading Club webpage and directly place your order.

The Horizon School and our teachers receive Bonus Points and rewards for the classroom as soon as you order.  We use these points to obtain new reading material for both our school's library and the individual classrooms.  This is yet another way in which you support both your child's education and provide a greater benefit to the school's children.
