Arrival is a very important time for your child – it helps set the tone for the day and helps to create positive feelings about school. Please remember the following points that will make these transitional times smoother for your child:
As soon as a child is personally handed to a teacher, the school assumes responsibility.
Conversely, as soon as a teacher hands a child to a parent, the parent assumes responsibility.
Children should always be accompanied by an adult before or after school.
All children must walk in with an adult – do not let your child come into the school or classroom alone at anytime.
Please do not leave the classroom without saying goodbye to your child.
Please wait to bring your child into his/her classroom until the designated class start time and please arrive for pick up at the designated times as well.
DO NOT let children run throughout the hallways or into empty rooms before class starts – keep them with you at all times.
Children are only allowed in the classrooms, Rainbow Room, and playground if a teacher is present.
The classroom doors will usually be closed before classes begin and end. This helps both the children and the teachers, as full attention can be given to each child during greetings and good-byes
Arrival and dismissal times are as follows:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday 9:00-11:30
Tuesday, Thursday 9:00-11:30
Monday, Wednesday, Friday 11:45-1:45
Tuesday, Thursday 11:45-1:45

**PUNCTUALITY IS IMPORTANT TO YOUR CHILD**
Sign In/Sign Out Policy
Parents or caregivers are required to sign their initials next to their child’s name whenever bringing their child to school or picking their child up. These initials will be recorded, with the exact arrival and departure times, in a class attendance book for licensing purposes. These books will be located just inside or outside of your child’s room or by the playground gate (depending on whether your child’s class is outside or inside during arrival and/or dismissal). If a child is not picked up on time, he/she is brought to the office where the parent/caregiver must sign him/her out in the school’s late book.
If your child attends Lunch Bunch or Extended Day, you must either sign your child in or sign him/her out in the appropriate attendance book for that session.
