Just a Few Friendly Reminders:

Every child must be registered in the After School Program (even if you never use it) so that if an emergency should arise and you are not able to arrive by 3:30 PM or if you have to drop your children off before 8 AM they will have a place to go. 

If you need forms please contact Ms. Chilton or the office.

Please use the car pool line when picking up or dropping off students.  If you need to go to office, park in the parking lot. 


If your student is absent, please call the office by 9:30AM. 

Children are asked to wear white or red tops and blue bottoms on Fridays.

Socks are to be worn by all students.


Visitors on Campus!

Parents, friends, family, and visitors, if you are coming on campus, please make sure you sign in at the office! Do not go to the classroom without checking in at the office.

This will help keep classroom disruptions to a minimum and insure campus safety!

Thank you for your cooperation!
