Frequently Asked Questions

  • * What do I need to register my child?

    You will need to bring your child's original birth certificate and 2 proofs of residency (one proof must be a lease, mortgage or contract papers, the second, a current utility bill, voter registration card or auto registration). A physical and shot record is required before any child can begin school.

    For your child's safety, please do not drop off students prior to 8:20 a.m. when supervision begins.

    Student dismissal begins at 3:25 pm. Any dismissal prior to 3:20 will be marked on attendance.

    * What is the policy regarding birthday celebrations?

    Parents are allowed to bring in a treat for students. Food items must be nut-safe and checked by the school nurse prior to distribution. Please make arrangements with your child's teacher prior to bringing in treats. Birthday party invitations cannot be distributed in the classroom.
