We will pick up and drop off the children on the west side of the school where our preschool buses park.
Please stay behind the bus parking
and watch for children!
We ask that the children stay with
the class as we walk out and
not run to you after school.
We need to be sure that
every child gets picked up
by the appropriate adult safely.
If you arrive late to school, you can bring your child to the playground on the west corner under the shade screen if we're still outside, or sign in and walk them to our room.
