BRINGING YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL…….
School hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The children may not arrive before 9:00 a.m. Teachers are working in their classrooms and may not attend to children at this time. If you arrive early, please take your child to the playground so the teachers may continue their morning setup. Licensing requires specific hours and we are licensed for 9:00 to 1:00.
* Drop-off and Pick-up:
When you bring your child to school, please bring them into the building, wash hands with handwipes, have your child sign in at the child station and be sure one of the teachers is aware of their presence. Do not allow your child to walk into the building alone. Inside the building, please do not take your children upstairs. We do not use that area and we do not allow any of the children in this area or on the stairway. Plan to pick up your child between 11:55 am and 12:00 pm, or 12:55pm-1:00pm. Again, make sure the teachers are aware you are taking your child. If you need to speak to a teacher during release time, please wait until all the children in her care are released to a parent. It is difficult to make sure all the children are safe, if the teacher is distracted.
* Sign-in & Sign-out:
When you bring your child and pick up your child, remember to SIGN IN AND SIGN OUT. If your child is picked up by a person not listed on your release sheet, we are now required to copy their drivers license and have them sign a pick-up sheet. Please try to make sure that most pick up persons are on your list. You may add to your list at any time during the school year.
* Late Pick up:
If your child remains at school past 12:05 p.m., he or she will be included in our lunch count for the day and there will be a $5.00 charge for the day; however, we do not have provisions for lunch. The lunch program hour is from 12:00 p.m. to 12:55 p.m. Remember, there is a late charge of $2.00 per every five minutes for pick-up after 1:00 p.m.
If you are going to be delayed picking up your child or there is any problem that will affect your child while at school, please call as soon as possible. The school number is 512-444-6783. This gives the teachers an opportunity to reassure your child of the situation. Unfortunately, we will still need to charge if your child is picked up late.
Please stop your car and park in a designated parking space. Do not pull up to the orange cones as you will be blocking the fire lane. Vehicles are not allowed to drive through the fire lane, so please do not remove the cones and drive through the lane. Please do not leave children or valuables inside your car while you are inside the school building. As always, keep your children with you at all times when traveling to and from your car.
