Important Back To School Notices for a smooth day and first week of school.

#1 - Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 7th, All students must wear a mask while in the building and on the bus.  All students must be tagged with his/her name, room number and phone number.  PARENTS, VISITORS OR GUESTS are not permitted to enter the school except for dropping off student prescription medication to the nurse. 

#2 - If your child is riding the bus, please be patient and be at the bus stop at 7:45 am. in the morning and at 3:05 pm. in the evening or at 12 noon to pick up 3 yo students.  If you have put in a BUS CHANGE REQUEST, transportation is working on them so be patient and bring your child to school until you hear from us.

#3 - Parents - morning drop-off will be at 8:05 am on
the Douglas Ave. side of the building (NOT THE MAIN/FRONT ENTRANCE).  I am asking that you get in the drop off line on the Douglas Ave side of the building and proceed into the empty parking lot where staff will direct and assist you getting your child out of the car and into the building safely.  We will do this until 9:00 am. 
ARRIVAL AFTER 9am - drop your child off at the main entrance in the front of the building.  Beginning the 2nd week of school, your child will be marked tardy. 

#4 - Dismissal will follow the same procedures in the same location as drop-off; however, parents must show an ID and sign that you have picked up your child. 
3 yo students pick up will be at 12 noon, please be on time. 
4 yo students' parent pick up will be at 2:45 pm.  Please be on time. 

#5 - The school will provide all school supplies.  Your student will need a backpack, a change of clothes, a towel or blanket for naptime.  

Lastly, parents, please make sure your child's teacher has your current phone number and email address because this is how we will communicate for the year.  

The staff and I will work diligently to keep up informed and updated with current events and information.
