Questions?


Safety First

Dismissal time is hectic for students and staff. To help the staff assure your child gets to the right place, parents please be aware of the following:

  1. You must send a note to your child's teacher to dismiss your child to the after school activity. Be sure to include the name of the activity and day of the week it meets.
  2. Kindergarten students typically need time to adjust to the school and new routines. Kindergarten students may NOT sign up for after school activities until the Winter session.
