*CALL US IF YOUR CHILD WILL BE ABSENT! LEAVE A MESSAGE.
*You MUST walk your child in EVERY morning and sign them in and out each day! NO exceptions or excuses! It is a requirement by the Health Department and JCPRD that the children are timed in and out by the parents every AM & PM. It is also a requirement that they are never unsupervised so you must walk them in and we can not send them to you at pick up.
