Carpool Reminder

Please make sure a teacher is unloading before letting your child out of the car in the morning.  School starts at 8:00.  If you need to drop your child off earlier than 8:00, please walk them in to Early Care(look for the light) and sign them in.  We want to make sure every child stays safe.
