-Changes to Drop-Off and Pick-Up

Beginning Monday, October 1st
We will have a new and required sign in/sign out sheet for every child and every day.  When you arrive on Monday there will be a clip board for your class.  The parent or caregiver bringing your child will need to sign them in. At pick up every child will need to be signed out.  Each person picking up or dropping off your child will need to be listed and authorized by you. We will have extra authorization forms for you on Monday.  We hope to make this as easy as possible. Many thanks in advance for these extra steps.
