Reminder: drive-through pick-up/drop-off time changes

This year we have been working hard to improve and streamline our pick-up and drop-off system as well as our before and after school care. We have made some important changes that will help us in doing this.  Please take note of the changes listed below, which will take effect on December 1st.

1.  Morning childcare will still start at 7:30, however between 7:30 and 7:45 am you will need to park and walk your child to the appropriate before-care room. Morning curb-side drop-off service will take place from 7:45-8:15 (previously 7:30-8:00) During this time a teacher's assistant (TA) is available to escort your child from the car to before school care or, if it is after 8 am, to his/her classroom. This allows you to remain in your car, and helps to alleviate parking congestion.  Please do not leave children at school before 7:30am.

2. Afternoon curb-side pick-up service will take place from 3:15-3:45 (previously 3:00-3:30) During this time a TA is available to escort your child from his/her classroom or the waiting room to your car.  As in the past, please have on hand one of the "Drive Through Student Pick-Up Cards," available from the front desks, to help our TAs locate your children in a timely manner.

3. After Care Room Changes. In the small modular above the playground: Room 21 will host children from all Low K classes, Room 22 will host the kindergarten classes, and Room 23 will host all students from grades 1-5 that have classes in the modulars. All students from Stearns Hall will remain in the music room for after care.

4. After 3:45 you will need to park and come inside to pick up your child. Extended Care will take place from 3:45-4:00 in Room 22 in the small modular above the playground. At 3:45 all children will be brought to room 22 for extended care with a teacher's aid. Between 3:45 and 4:00, there will not be an assistant on hand to escort children to the cars, so please park and report directly to Room 22 for pick-up.

5. Parents who pick up their children after 4pm will continue to be charged a fee.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
