ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL PROCEDURES
Please read this notice very carefully and share it with any and all persons who may drop off and/or pick-up your child. This includes grandparents, nannies, sitters and any persons designated on your pick-up list.
For the safety of our preschoolers, your child must be dropped off and picked up by an adult at their scheduled arrival/dismissal time.
PLEASE use the parking lot in front of the gym (The Family Center) to park and use the appropriate walk way to cross. You will enter through the black gates in between Kohl’s Hall and the Gym and then proceed into the Main Entrance of Assumption ECLC building to drop off/pick-up your child.
We cannot stress enough the importance of:
- Holding your child’s hand when coming from or going to your car.
- Keeping social conversations to a minimum so that children are safely in your care.
- Greeting your child upon drop off/pick-up, whether in car or walking – CELL PHONES SHOULD NOT TO BE USED AT THIS TIME!
Children who are registered for Preschool Full Day may be dropped off beginning at 7:00 am. They must be walked in with a parent or adult.
Children who are registered for the VPK and Preschool with Extended Day may drop off beginning at 7:30am. VPK begins promptly at 8:00am.
Parents may drop off Preschool children at the doors of the classrooms between 7:00am-8:30am (Infants may be dropped off at the classroom at any time). After 8:30am, the hallway door will close and a staff member will be required to escort you child down to the classroom. This will help prevent interruptions to circle and lessons once class instruction begins. Please keep conversations during drop off to a minimum. Teachers must have their attention on the children in their care.
It is crucial that your child arrive on time. When our children arrive late, the routine or whole trajectory of the day is affected. If being late is a pattern, it damages a child’s motivation towards learning and school in general.
