We will be modifying out pick up process this year to make it easier on you and the children during pick up time.

We will be “staging” the students near the exit door with them already packed up and shoes changed.  The staff and students will finish up snack and start the packing up process. 

 

Starting at 2:50, there will be a teacher stationed at the door looking for parents arriving.  Please wait at the bottom of the steps for the teacher to send your child out to you.  If there is a person in front of you, please wait your turn.  Your child will come out with their tote bag/lunch box and personal belongings.

 

If you need to speak to a staff member about any details, please call ahead or email to let the staff know that you need a little “chat time.”  And be forewarned that it will be the staff’s priority to dismiss the other students in a timely manner.  If you need to speak to the staff at the need of the day, please try to arrive by 2:30 to give ample time to talk.

DROP OFF
Parents/caregivers are not permitted inside the building unless absolutely necessary and if they must enter, they must be wearing a face covering and wash/sanitize their hands upon entering. Drop off will be done completely outside as we have done in years past.  We will start each day outside on the playground. We will have a drop-off car line each morning beginning at 8:50am.  At drop-off, per MSDE licensing requirements, parents must wear a face covering and take their child's temperature (with their own thermometer) in front of a staff member so that it can be recorded by a staff member each day. To avoid temperature mis-readings due to weather, the child should remain in the car for their temperature taking. Any child with a temperature of 99.9 or higher or any sick symptoms will not be permitted into preschool that day. Children may return when they are fever and symptom free without medication for 72 hours. In certain cases, a child may be able to return sooner than 72 hours if they can provide satisfactory medical evidence that they have no risk of being contagious.  Upon arrival, children will place their lunch in the cooler, place their bucket on the bucket rack and wash their hands.   They will then go to the playground with other staff members and students.
