First Day of School - Preschool Program

Greetings Families,

School returns to session on Tuesday, September 5th and we are so excited to see all the little faces, new and returning. To help us make the First Day a success, there are a few things we need from you:

  • Make sure your child arrives at school on time, 8:20 a.m. (Morning care is not in session on the first day.) Breakfast ends promptly at 8:45 a.m.

  • Walk your child to their classroom and check them in with the teaching staff.

  • Make sure your child is in full uniform. Girls should be in yellow tops and navy blue bottoms (skirts, skorts, or pants). Boys should be in light blue tops and navy blue bottoms. Closed-toe shoes only! Crocs, sandals, or other open-toed shoes are prohibited in school.

  • Label all your child's personal items with their full name. Please provide a complete set of changing clothes labeled with their full name as well.

  • Check-in all medications with the Family Support Team. Medications cannot be taken directly to the office. Medications must be in original, sealed packaging, with the pharmacy label visible or they will be returned. If your child is required to receive medication on-site, they will not be permitted into class until the correct medication is received.

  • Arrive on time for dismissal, between 2:30 p.m. and 2:50 p.m. Aftercare will begin on September 11th and ends daily at 5:30 p.m. SHARP. Please make sure all persons picking up have a photo ID. You will receive a separate notification if your child is enrolled in aftercare. We currently have a waiting list for aftercare. Please do not leave your child until enrollment has been confirmed.

  • If you need to update your contact information, stop by the office in Room 120.

In case you missed our Parent Orientation or did not receive a copy of the Parent Handbook, you can access them both here:
