Parents we are very thankful that you all help us by opening the door when the bell rings. We ask that you only allow parents that you recognize into the Preschool. Please do not open the door to people you don’t recognize. Notify the teachers if the bell rings and it’s someone you do not recognize.

Please remember that it is the school policy that you bring your child all the way in to the preschool when you drop them off. Please NEVER drop your child in the Foyer area, or FRONT DOOR. Also, you must always sign your child in when dropping them off. I will have to call you to come back and sign your child in if your child is not signed in for the day. Thank you in advance.

Have a great March, and may the light of God be with you during this time of Easter preparation…
