  • Student Check-in and Out

    All students must be signed in and out by an adult. No child should be signed in or left in a classroom, until the teacher is present and acknowledges your arrival. It is the policy of the school that all children be escorted, and supervised by an adult staff member during all hours of operation. 

    Each teacher will keep a roster and maintain a count throughout the day of the students present and in their care. At the end of the day all rosters will be verified and checked by the classroom teacher(s), the teacher will circulate their classroom, halls, and bathrooms to verify that all children are accounted for and/or in their age appropriate classroom. Before closing for the day, the final staff member(s) will verify that all children have been accounted for and signed out by a parent or guardian. The staff member(s) will also walk through each classroom to verify that all persons have left the building.

    If you are carpooling, please make sure that the driver signs in and out all children in the carpool. Unknown persons picking up your child will be required to show identification, which needs to coincide with the parental permission given to the   director.  If an unknown, unauthorized person attempts to pick up your child you will be notified immediately, and if necessary the sheriff will be called.
