Below are a few “need-to-know” procedures for the school year.
In the event that a child must leave school due to an illness, we request that an authorized adult pick up the child from the premises. Children who have headaches, fever, rashes, stomach aches, or sore throats are encouraged to stay home.
New Jersey law requires that a parent send in a written and signed note from the parent indicating the reason why the child missed school, for example, had a cold, strep throat, stomach virus etc.
At the end of the day, children are dismissed to the authorized individuals designated for pickup. Children who live within walking distance leave through the front door. Students being picked up by school bus or by car are picked up from the parking lot area under the supervision of the school’s teachers. If your child will be leaving with another school parent, you must leave written instructions with the school on the day of pickup designating who will be picking up your child.
After Care is available on an as-needed basis for all K-8 children for a nominal daily fee. Our After Care program runs every school day from 2:40 p.m. to 6 p.m. Should you decide to place your child in After Care for the day, you must either leave a written note with the School Secretary at the front desk or send one in with your child to their homeroom teacher.
For Pre-K Drop-off and Dismissal information, please refer to the Pre-K Student Handbook.
