Preschool Information

If you have a preschooler attending Culver "Little Cavs" Preschool, PLEASE remember to do the following...
1. Each week has to be paid in advance. For example, the week of August sixth must already be paid prior to the student being picked up on Tuesday. (The Deposit Fee was not the first weeks payment)
2. When your child boards the bus, an adult/parent must be there to buckle them in.
3. If your child is allergic to any of the lunches that we are serving, please let the teacher know, and have your child bring his/her lunch for that day.

Weather Alerts and Notifications/ Notifying the Office when your Child is Sick

As the weather starts to really get chilly and students are beginning to catch the flu bug, there are a few things that we need you to remember:
  • Please make sure that your child leaves the house appropriately dressed for the weather. We still go outside for recess even when it is pretty chilly outside.
  • Do not drop your children off at the front door prior to 7:30. The doors do not get unlocked until the assistant gets there at 7:30.
  • If the weather looks like it may be too treacherous for school, please check WNDU, WSBT, or FOX22 for closings or school delays. WROI and WXVI will also be informed of closings and delays. You may also check Culver Elementary's Facebook Page. (go to the link on this page and "like" our page).
  • If your child is absent please call Yvonne Shepherd at 574-842-3389 or email her at
  • Also remember if your child has a fever, they have to be 24 hours fever free before they come back to school. You never know when that fever may spike back up!
