Please be sure we have your child's physicals and immunization records. If you have not done so, be sure that you have an appointment scheduled soon.
As a reminder, per state law (105 ILCS 5/27-8.1), documentation of required health-related examinations and immunization requirements for students, or applicable exemptions or appointments allowed by law, is required to be filed with the school by Oct. 15. If a child’s family has not ensured timely compliance with these important health requirements by Oct. 15, then the students must be excluded from school until proof is presented that you have met the requirements.

Before Care begins at 7:00AM until 7:30 AM - If your child arrives before 7:30, you will be charged.
Students can be dropped off anytime after 7:30 AM. Please do not leave your child standing outside if it is before 7:30AM, even if a staff member is present. If this occurs, they will be sent inside and charged for before care.
Aftercare is available until 5:30 PM. Please contact the office for an aftercare registration form if you plan to utilize aftercare. It is important for us to have the form for contact information.
