Frequently Asked Questions
Can I take my grandchild/special friend home at 12:30 p.m.?
The celebration of Grandparents and Special Friends concludes at 12:30 p.m., and the rest of the day will be regularly scheduled classes and instruction for the kids. We encourage families to have their children attend the full day of school, picking up at our regular dismissal of 3:15 p.m. If you wish to take a student home early, please notify receptionist Geraldine Soriano at 703-960-3431 in advance.
Who can be considered a special friend?
Any person who plays an important role in a child’s life — family friend, aunts, uncles, godparents, an older brother or sister, even parents can serve as special friends. It is an opportunity for our students to showcase their love of Burgundy to the people they care about most!
Burgundy has a large campus - will there be assistance getting around if needed? Is the campus accessible?
Yes. The campus is nearly fully accessible, with handicap accessible bathrooms. There is some rougher terrain around the more pastoral parts of the farm campus. We will have golf carts that will help those in need of assistance get from place to place. For those who do not need assistance, we encourage you to wear comfortable walking shoes, and appropriate clothing for the weather, as some time will be spent outside transitioning from building to building.
