Don't Leave Children Alone!
Also, as a reminder, being late should be a very occasional situation. If you are late by a few minutes quite often, please do your best to make changes so that you can arrive on time every morning. This means that children are in their classrooms by 8 am. Packing things up the night before can help speed things up in the morning. It is disruptive to your child's start to the day, as well as the rest of the class when they are late. As an example, a family of 3 children who is late, impacts those three children and three classrooms full of students. Thank you for your efforts on this and to all who routinely make it to school on time. It is much appreciated! As always, if there is an issue relating to this that we can assist with or need to be aware of, please do not hesitate to let us know.
- $10 for the entertainment, a plate of 1 or 2 tacos with rice and beans, a drink, and a dessert
- $5 for entertainment only (no food)
