General Announcements

Drop Off/Pick Up

  • Lower School – In the event that someone else needs to pick up your child from school, please communicate as follows:
    1. Write a note for your child to give to his teacher in the morning.
    2. If it is too late to send in a note, please call the school office and the message will be relayed to the teacher.
    3. Email is the last option. Teachers are busy during the day and often are not able to read email or text messages until after the students have already gone home. An email message works great when you are planning ahead.
  • Upper School – Now that the Auditorium renovation is complete, parents can follow the normal drop off and pick up route in front of the Main Auditorium portico and the Panther Doors.
