An important part of an effective education requires a partnership between the home and the school. This environment must be safe and free from unnecessary disruption. Loveland Classical Schools establishes and maintains many positive opportunities for parents to get and stay involved. The list of opportunities for support varies from everyday activities and responsibilities to which are annual and semi-annual.

Code of Conduct
Failure to adhere to the following standards undermines the partnership between home and school. In support of Loveland Classical Schools, LCS students and parents hereby commit to the following standards:
By enrolling your student in Loveland Classical Schools, you agreed to the partnership between home and school. Please find the necessary energy, time and resources to devote to your student’s education. Loveland Classical Schools has established three involvement standards toward the successful parent/school partnership.
First: The Parent(s)/Guardian(s) will attend a minimum of one Parent/Teacher Conference per student annually.
Second: The Parent(s)/Guardian(s) will attend a minimum of one Parent Informational Meeting.
Third: Families are encouraged to participate in school-wide activities.
Volunteers are an integral part of Loveland Classical Schools. Parents/Guardians are strongly encouraged to participate on school committees and to provide other volunteer services as they are able within the parameters defined in the LCS Handbook. All Volunteers are welcome to review our Parent Involvement, Observation and Volunteering Policy
Students are expected to be honest in word and actions. Students choosing to cheat will face the consequences defined in the Loveland Classical Schools Handbook.
Students and parents will learn and uphold, in their words and actions, the LCS Core Virtues of Loveland Classical Schools.
Basic standards for dress and personal appearance are cleanliness and neatness. Students will adhere to the dress code standards outlined in the Loveland Classical Schools Handbook. Students arriving out of dress code will not be permitted to attend class.
Homework is a fundamental part of our academic program. Students are responsible for turning in homework on time.
Students will be in their assigned classrooms promptly at the beginning of each school day and at the beginning of each class period. Upon tardy arrival the driver/parent will enter the school and sign in the students.
Drivers and students will abide by traffic policies set forth in the Loveland Classical Schools Handbook. Failure to do so not only compromises the safety of the students but also undermines in a direct and visible way the values we are teaching to the students including respect and responsibility. Drivers will set the example of obedience to the rules.
