Your child’s safety is very important to us. Please be sure to keep our school records current on changes with phone numbers as well as emergency contacts. This is crucial in the event we need to get in touch with you. Also, please note that our student drop-off time begins at 8:50 AM in the west parking lot. If there is a need to drop your child off earlier, please contact the Champions Childcare Program by calling 609-851-9543.
In closing, we would like to wish all of our students and their families a Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends!
