Your children are precious
Your children are a great treasure, and we would be honored to partner with you in educating them—for both now and eternity. Here you can find information about our admission policies. These are intended to help you better understand how we can best serve our community of students and their families.
Admission: Meadow Glade is part of the world-wide Adventist Educational system. It is the policy of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in all church-operated schools to admit students of any race, color, sex, or national origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at its school, and makes no discrimination on basis of race in administration of education, policies, application for admission, scholarship, and athletic or extracurricular activities.
Qualifications for Admission: Meadow Glade Adventist Elementary School welcomes any young person (K-8) who desires a character-building education. As a Seventh-day Adventist Christian school, high moral principles and respect for God and others are expected from all who attend. Students should realize that when they present themselves for admission to Meadow Glade Adventist Elementary School they, thereby, willingly pledge to observe the regulations and uphold the Christian principles upon which the school is founded. Behavior contrary to this will forfeit a student’s privilege to attend.
Age of Admission: A student may enter kindergarten if he/she reaches the age of five (5) on or before August 31 of the current school year. To enter first grade the child must be six (6) years of age on or before August 31. We encourage parents, however, to wait until their child is at least seven years of age to enter first grade. A birth certificate is required of all first-year students and must be shown at registration. The school may require readiness screening for kindergarten and first grade students.
Health Policies: The state of Washington requires that all students have their immunizations recorded on the Washington State Immunization Form. All students need to have specific immunizations that can be found on the Health Policies Information Sheet. All new students are required to undergo a basic physical exam. Students entering grades four and seven are also required to have a physical exam. Staff and faculty may not provide medication of any type to a student unless we have the required authorization. Permission is also needed for students to self-medicate.
Financial Policies: Meadow Glade Adventist Elementary School derives its income from three primary sources. Each of the nine constituent churches combine to contribute 22% while the Oregon Conference provides a subsidy of 24%. The remaining 54% of income for the school’s operating budget is derived from tuition. The school operates on a very tight budget in order to keep tuition costs as low as possible. In order to do this, it is important that tuition payments be received on a timely basis. Families that have an outstanding tuition bill will not be allowed to enroll unless special arrangements have been made. For a more complete list of financial policies, please see the financial information pages 12 & 13 in the school handbook.
