Early School care arrivals:

To accomplish early care arrival efficiently and safely, families bringing their students to school must remain outside at all times. You will walk your child to the playground gate, maintaining social distancing guidelines. A designated WEK staff will administer the daily health check procedure. Please be patient (or arrive early) as we safely admit your child. Please remember that early school care is an additional cost ($3.50) for you.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Written permission is required for your child to leave school with someone not listed on the BLUE emergency card.
  • You may call ahead if you forget to write a note and give the person’s name and recognizable characteristics.
  • We will ask to see identification if we do not know the person picking up your child.
  • A written note should be sent when a person other than a routine person is picking up your child from school. Please sign and date the note.
