What’s the daily schedule?
Morning Circle is at 9:30am. This is our outside classroom that begins our learning each day. Parents are welcome to join us! Most classrooms have morning snack around 11:00.

Where do I drop off my child?
From 7:30-9:15am, drop off is at the Before School Program in the cafeteria. From 9:15am until the end of Morning Circle, drop-off is on the yard. (On rainy days, Morning Circle is in the cafeteria.) After Morning Circle, your child can go directly to their classroom. After 9:30am, you must stop by the main office for a tardy pass.
At 3:35pm, you can pick up your child in the school yard. Between 3:35-6:30pm, please enter through the school’s front double doors and pick up your child from the YMCA program.
Do I need to sign my child in and out every day?
You don’t need to sign your child in or out of the regular school program. You do need to sign your child out of the After School Program, every day. Children in 4th grade and above may leave on their own at dismissal time, with parent permission, and may also sign their younger siblings out.
How do I pick up my child early?
Go to the main office and sign them out, and your child will be called from their classroom to come to the office to meet you.
What do I do if I’m going to be in the school during the day?
Go to the main office, sign in on the clipboard by the door, and get a visitor pass.
