Drop Off/Pick Up – Guardians will enter the building using their supplied key fob/code. The Director will monitor who enters the building as well as cameras that are in use. Only authorized guardians who are in the child’s file are permitted to pick up the child. In case of an emergency, pupils not on the list will only be allowed to pick up the child with the consent of the parent directly to the Director and only once person shows the Director a form of identification.
Please do not attempt to drop off your child prior to 6:30 a.m., even if center staff are in the building. This is a MA state regulation.
Children should arrive at school by 9:00 a.m. unless otherwise discussed with center staff. Late drop offs should be notified to center staff. If your child arrives later than 10:00 a.m. without center staff being notified, we may ask that your child not attend that day due to staffing needs. Also, if your child has not arrived by 10:00 a.m. we may call you to make sure your child is safe.
If parent/guardian fails to pick up child and/or has not contacted the center and/or another authorized person cannot be reached within 30 minutes after closing time, center staff may release child to protective services or other local authorities. (MA state regulation)
Child Cubbies – Please check your child’s cubby daily and take home any forms, announcements, and your child’s work left there for you. Teachers also use the cubbies to post reminders of supplies your child needs and to provide you with your copy of your child’s daily sheet, monthly curriculum plans, etc.
Daily Sheets – The daily sheet is the primary means we use to communicate information about your child’s day to you. Daily sheets include notes about your child’s personal achievements, challenges, and interests over the day as well as about your child’s eating, sleeping, and toileting behaviors. Teachers use the daily sheets also to communicate special announcements or requests. The daily sheet can be extremely useful to you in your efforts to reconnect with your child at the end of each day.
