New Covenant Christian School
A student’s consistent presence at school is an important part of the learning process, and a student must attend school a certain number of days each year in order to be considered a full-time enrollee. However, we understand that due to illness, family emergencies, or for other reasons, a student may need to miss school occasionally. Please click here to view our Attendance Policy for more information about this topic.
New Covenant Christian School offers healthy meals every school day. All students are eligible for free lunch because of the school’s participation in the NYSED CEP program.
At our school students are taught healthy eating and physical activity knowledge, skills, and values. We are committed to creating a healthy school environment that supports student achievement. Learn more about our school food practices and policies here.
Our school offers breakfast, lunch, and snack to all students free of charge.
