  • Teachers welcome informal conferences about the children at drop off and pick up times.  However, please keep drop off conversations to a minimum as teachers are responsible for the supervision of children at this time.

  • Parents may designate up to three other individuals to pick up their child from school.  Each must be listed on the child’s enrollment form.
