Have you ever wondered why we do some of the things that we do?  Some things that we do may seem silly but many of our practices are because our licensing regulations mandate that we operate under certain guidelines.  Here are some reminders that fall into this category!

Snacks-must be healthy.  We can't serve fruit snacks, fruit roll ups, Rice Krispy treats, Doritos and other snack chips, cookies etc.
Masks- All adults MUST wear masks in the building
ID Checks- If we don't recognize you, you will have your ID checked
Sign in/Sign out- We must record attendance in some manner

Thanks for understanding and helping us to comply with rules, regulations and mandates!


Our program is now able to offer free lunches to all students who are enrolled in our full day program though December 31st.  This is retroactive to the beginning of the school year.  Anyone who has ordered lunches and paid for them this year will receive a credit on their account towards tuition or will be issued a refund.  Going forward, there will be no charge for hot lunches ordered
                                             through this calendar year.
October 14th there will be a 2 hour delay.  Doors will open at 9:55 AM.  There will be no extended day and no AM prek.

Halloween Celebrations

We will not be having parties, parades or dress up days for Halloween this year.  The current restrictions due to Covid-19 will not allow for our normal routine Halloween events. Instead we will have a week of fall and Halloween-themed fun.  During the last week of October we host the following days:

10/26 Monday- Crazy hair day or dress in fall colors 
10/27 Tuesday- Movie Day 
10/28 Wednesday- Fall science celebration day-  bring in a colored leaf, gourd, small
                               pumpkin, dried corn, dried sunflower etc. to study in
                               science centers
10/29 Thursday- Dress like a pumpkin day or wear orange
10/30 Friday-Silly socks or Halloween sock day

Oct 27th & Oct 28th 
Mark your calendars! 
Your child picture assignment day is posted outside of each classroom.  Check it out!  No orders will be required before pictures.  Pictures will be taken, proofs will be sent to you and then you can order what you like!

We are a polling location so we will be closed on November 3rd for all students including School Aged Childcare.

Extended Day Hours:   6:30 AM- 7:45 AM
                                       3:00 PM- 6:00 PM
