arrival dismissal and absences
Arrival; Dismissal; and Absences
  • If you arrive prior to 8:10 your child will wait with Mrs. Sanchez by the library until it is time to go to the classroom. We understand you wanting to walk your child to the classroom, but after the first 2-3 days we ask that you let your child walk him or herself to class.
  • Drop for the A.M. class may begin at 7:45 a.m. and and for the P.M. class at 12:30 p.m.
  • After 8:20 and 12:40 your child will be considered tardy and you will need to stop by the office to sign them in for the day.
  • Please be prompt when picking up your child after school. Class is over at 11:20 a.m. and 3:40 p.m.
  • If your child’s method of transportation is changing please send a note in their daily folder. Phone calls and emails are not acceptable when changing a child’s mode of transportation.
  • If your child is absent – please send a note upon his/her return or the absence will be considered unexcused.
early release days
Early Release Days
  • There are 6 early dismissal days this year and Pre-K will meet on those days.
  • Early dismissal days are as follows:

  • Please do not send snack on these days.
blue tote bags
Blue Tote Bags
  • Tote Bags – Are the only back packs used in prekindergarten.
  • They are just large enough to hold the daily folder, snack, and extra clothes in case of an accident. This is very important. Each child needs an extra change of clothes because, as they say, accidents happen.
  • Please help your child to remember to leave their toys at home not in their tote.
  • They can be purchased at the front office, registration, orientation, or meet the teacher and are $5.00 for the 2013-2014 school year.
