We do not require a list of supplies to be brought in during August. Instead, each month students will be assisgned either snack duty or a needed classroom item (paper towels, cups, disinfectant, liquid soap, etc.).
How does drop-off/pick-up work?Preschool students begin their day at 9am on the playground (8am for kindergarten). Parents are responsible for signing their child in and out daily. Parents may not leave their child on the playground until a teacher arrives. Classes are dismissed at noon and each class has a designated pick-up area. We ask that parents park in the parking spots on the westend of the parking lot and avoid parking in spots designated as "Pastor" and "Church Employee." Children should not be left unattended in vehicles. Arizona Dept of Child Safety will be notified of all children left in an unattended vehicle as per State Regulations.

Please bring enough snacks for 19.

A maximum of 24 students may be signed up per day. The teachers reserve the right to cancel extended day if a minimum of 8 students are not signed-up. The cost is $4 per student and the money should placed in the child's lunchbox. Students must be picked up by 2pm. Morning Extended Day is available Monday-Friday. Students can be dropped off inside starting at 8:30am. Parents will sign the student in and leave $1 in the basket. Students must also be signed in on their classroom cart.
What if my child is ill?We ask that you keep your child home if he shows signs of any illness that may be spread to other children. If you're child will not be attending class due to illness, it is courteous to let his teacher know. If your child displays signs of illness at school (fever, vomiting, excessive coughing, constant nasal drainage, etc.), the child will be removed from his peers and a parent will be contacted to come pick him up.
How do I contact my child's teacher?All teachers use the Remind app to communicate with parents regarding reminders and updates. Parents may contact teachers through the app with questions and to request a meeting. If you have any concerns about your child's progress, please refrain from discussing the matter with your teacher on the playground or at pick-up when other parents are present. Scheduling a meeting will allow your teacher to prepare and provide you with a space to discuss your child's progress in confidential space. Parents can always contact the school with immediate concerns by phone, 928-344-2519 or with general questions by email, email@example.com.
How do I withdraw my child?If you need to withdraw your child, you are required to notify the director in email or letter at least 30 days from the desired date of withdrawal. If you notify the director after the 1st of the month, you will be required to pay the following month's tuition. Director's email: firstname.lastname@example.org
