Arriving and Departing
The security of your child is important to our entire staff. To ensure the safety of your child, we will dismiss only to parents, guardians, or designated persons noted on your emergency card. In the event it is necessary for someone other than those noted to pick up your child, a phone call or a note from the parent / legal guardian is required. Please let the designated person know that they will be required to provide a picture ID before your child will be released to him/her. No child will be dropped off at the door. Parents are responsible for assisting their child/children to their classroom and into the care of a staff person.
