Important Information


For rainy day drop off and pick up, parents are welcome to pull up under the driveway. We do ask that some guidelines are followed. Please pull in from the street, not from the parking lot. Two cars can fit side by side, please pull as far as you can to one side or the other so as to not block the driveway for other parents. Please remember to be patient. We are all in the same boat on rainy days.

With the constant changing of the weather it is very important to send your children dressed appropriately. Remember coats and shoes when needed. We will still go outside if it is cold.

Afterschool parents, if your child will not ride the bus notify the Academy by 1:30pm. This will save us a lot of time locating your child.

Please notify us if your child has been diagnosed with a contagious illness. We will send a letter to the class and this will help us control outbreaks. Please read the Parent Handbook for our sick child policy.

Bring medication to school. It must be in its original box with your child’s name, age, and dose on it. We will not give adult medicine to children or toddler medicine to infants.

Extra clothes are a must! If your child has a potty accident and does not have a change of clothes you will have to leave work and bring clothes immediately. The Academy does not provide extra clothes.

“Wee” Facts, Tips and Advice

A Sign of the Times
As a little girl climbed onto Santa’s lap, Santa asked the usual, “And what would you like for Christmas?”

The child stared at him open mouthed and horrified for a minute, then gasped: “Didn’t you get my E-mail?”

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
