Drop-off points are usually Lakenheath Village, Lakenheath Base, Mildenhall Base, Mildenhall Village, Red Lodge, Newmarket, Brandon, and Thetford housing.

Books and Materials

In most classes, textbooks will be issued without charge. Each student is responsible for all books, supplies, and equipment received. If a book or other school material is lost, please look in the lost and found area. If the item is not found, it becomes the responsibility of the student/sponsor to buy a replacement book/material in place of any lost items. Sponsor must replace item before school records can be released.

Dress Code

Inappropriate clothing included: clothes with holes, tops with spaghetti or racer straps, T-shirts bearing inappropriate and/or suggestive words/pictures or profanity. For the full list of inappropriate clothing and consequences for infractions please download the full version of our Student Handbook located on the right sidebar of this page.

Electronic Devices

Using portable communications devices contrary to school policy (e.g., cell phones, personal computers, Blackberry's, iPhone&#’;s. Please make every effort to have your child at school on time. Parents transporting students to school must come to the front office to sign their student in. If parents do not follow these procedures, the students will be marked with an unexcused tardy.


Only in emergency situations will messages be given to students. Parents should make all necessary arrangements with their child prior to the school day. Only in the most unusual circumstance will messages from parents be delivered to a student if there is additional coverage in the office.

Nurse/Medications at School

Students should not carry/bring any medications to school. If it is necessary for medications to be dispensed during school hours, a parent must bring the medications to the school nurse and sign the appropriate forms.

Signing In/Out

If students are late arriving at school, they must be signed in by a parent in the front office. Students who depart school early with sponsor and school permission must be signed out by the sponsor at the attendance window.




Parents who wish to visit the school MUST sign in at the main office. If parents wish to see a teacher, principal or counselor, it is necessary to make an appointment in order to avoid interrupting a class, meeting or another appointment.
