Arrival Plans: A friendly reminder to make sure students are not dropped off prior to 8:30. We do not have staff available for supervision. Last, breakfast does not begin service until 8:30.

Dismissal Plans: This is a friendly reminder to ensure to have plans to pick up your students at dismissal. Setting consistent plans before the start of the school day and ensuring an adult is available at 3:45 or 1:50 is appreciated. Please also ensure we have updated contact information in the event we need to contact you for an emergency.

Both Arrival and Dismissal Plans are part of our District policy found in the student handbook. Please refer to the handbook or contact the school if you have any questions.  We do not provide before or after school care through the school; if you should need care you may contact Y’s Kids program at 234-7589 and they will let you know of the availability and cost to provide care. Y’s Kids program holds before and after school care in our school.

Recess: Please make sure students come prepared to go outside for recess each day; hats, gloves, boots, snowpants, etc. If the Real Feel/Air Tempurature is above Zero according to we will send students outside as we like students to be outside as much as possible.
