    Dear Parents,

     We are so excited about having your child in our preschool program.Having your child in our preschool is important to us. Here are some procedures that we will follow to keep your child safe:

     Arrival to School: Please help us keep your child safe by bringing your child no earlier than the parent drop-off time. Teachers are not required to be on duty before that time.

     Picking up your child: Please bring an I.D (driver’s license) for verification and the safety of your child when picking your child up from school.

     Transportation: Transportation is not provided for preschool children unless the child has an Individual Education Plan (IEP). Students with an IEP riding the bus must have an adult get the child on and off the bus each day, unless the school has written permission for a student 12 or older to do so. The student will be brought back to school if there is no adult to meet the bus. If transportation changes, please call 346-9242.

     Student Absences: We are a highly structured preschool program. Being on time and at school is important. Please help support our preschool classrooms by having your child be consistent and in a routine of being at school. If your child is absent, please call the building your child attends. If a student without an IEP does not attend school for 8 days without an excuse, their place at preschool may be filled by someone else.

     Address /Telephone Changes:Please inform the child’s teacher or call the building your child attends when you have a change of telephone numbers or address.

     Lunch or Breakfast:All preschool students will eat breakfast or lunch at school with the class. Parents have the option of packing a breakfast or lunch, or participating in the school breakfast or lunch program.

     Early Dismissal:If school is dismissed early or cancelled due to weather or other reason, parents will be notified through School Reach.

     Preschool Rules:Preschool rules in the classrooms are: Be Responsible, Be Respectful, Be Safe, and Be Honest.

     Starting Preschool:In order to start preschool, the child’s birth certificate and immunization records must be on file.
