Pick-up begins at 1155am and ends at 1205pm (please be on time so we have proper time to clean between morning and afternoon sets). Kids will be ready to go, with shoes and backpacks on.
The teacher will wear a face shield. Children under 5 are not required to wear masks.
Please bring your child's water bottle and a backpack with a change or two of clothes and an extra layer. We will be limiting the number of items brought from home. If your child needs a comfort animal/toy to get here, please know that I will have them keep it in their backpack or with you in the car (so it is safe and awaiting their return). This will prevent personal items from being played with or shared during class.
