Please enter the building only through the front school entrance, where you have key card access. We have given every ELC household key cards to help keep our building, and everyone inside it, secure. Your key cards give you access to the front school doors, the ELC entrance doors, and the main school hallway entrance doors. They will not work on any other entrances in the building. Your key cards will only give you access to the building during drop-off, which is 7:30-8:45am, and pick-up, which is 3:15-5:30pm. These are coded in a way that they will not work outside of those times.
Preschool and Pre-K families, please do not use the side gate to enter the playground. This gate is for Extended Care families only. The Extended Care staff does not know who you are, so they should not be letting you in through the gate. We are trying to keep the building, and everyone inside, secure. Even if your child is outside on the Preschool/Pre-K playground, please still enter through the main school entrance to pick up your child. This will help our Extended Care team feel more comfortable being out on the playground in the afternoon.
Additionally, when you come to pick your child up from the Preschool/Pre-K playground, make sure you are always shutting the playground gate, after you walk through it. Too often the gate is being left open, allowing students to run freely out of the playground. We want our kids to stay safely in the playground, until they are safely walking out of the playground with you, and one of the best ways to do that is to keep the gate shut.
Thank you for your help with keeping your children and our teachers safe!
