EARLY REGISTRATION FEE REMINDER
Early registration for next school year ended on April 30, 2023. All current families processed after April 30th will have to pay a fee of $250 per child as stated in your enrollment packet. Until you pay the enrollment fee your child is not registered for next school year. Please call the School Office if you are not sure if you paid next year’s enrollment fee.
Parents, if for any reason you need to come to school during the day, please remember to check in at the School Office in the gymnasium. No parent or family member should attempt to approach a classroom before first checking in with the School Office. You must sign your name on our register and receive a visitor pass before proceeding to your child’s classroom. This is part of our school security policy and ensures that we have a record of everyone on our campus at all times. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
Please remember that students who are ill or have a fever are not permitted to attend class and should not be brought to school. A child who wakes up with a fever and is given Tylenol is still a sick child. Please do not send your child to school within a 24 hour period of fever, vomiting or diarrhea. No student with a temperature of 100 degrees or above will be allowed to remain in school. Thank you for your cooperation.
