Parent Pick procedures
All people authorized to pick up any student MUST be listed on the registration form for security and safety of the
children. You MUST Bring in your Car tag and ID for pick up. NO EXCEPTIONS!!! Late Pick Up Like yours, our time is valuable,
and our families are waiting for us at the end of the day too! We understand that sometimes things happen and cannot
be avoided so we will afford each family one grace of 10 minutes per year of tardiness with the hopes that you do not
need to use it. After that a $5 per minute will be assessed for excessive tardiness.
We thank you for allowing us to share a bit of adventure with your children each day!
