Extended hours (and healthy snacks) are ALWAYS included in your original program fee.

Entrances: For drop off, enter through the main building front door closest to the JK/SK Pen / main parking lot.

For pick up, enter THROUGH the JK/SK Pen. (The doors you entered for the morning drop off will be locked.) Please do not use the school’s main entrance. Children may not be dropped off for entrance on their own.

Check-in / check-out: All children must be checked in and out by their parent/guardian or a pre-authorized caregiver (recorded in your registration or by written consent). All caregivers picking up will be asked to show us picture ID to confirm identity until staff are familiar.

Parking: Please use one of the school’s parking lots, or on the street if permitted. Do not park, stop or idle beside the school or in the bus / fire lanes as this is not permitted and creates a safety concern.
