discuss something with the head of staff, then, after you drop off your child/ren, you will be
directed to a special parking area.
After 9:40 AM, counselors will not be waiting outside to escort your child/ren. For late arrivals please
park your car and then bring your child/ren to the main office where you will need to
sign them in.
Pick-up time is 3:15PM - 3:30PM. Drive slowly into the parking lot, and pull up to the door.
Please inform the office in advance of your intention to pick-up your child/ren early. All
