Dear Jones Early Childhood Center families and caregivers,
It is with great pleasure that we welcome you back to a new year at the Jones ECC. The staff are excited to begin this new school year with your student, both new and familiar. Some building changes occurred over the summer as we prepare to welcome the district administrative team to our building in the spring of 2019. All preschool services will be offered in classrooms and therapy spaces in the main hallway of the building. It is with that in mind and in an effort to improve security in the school, keeping your child safe, that I write to explain our NEW arrival and drop-off procedures.
All drop-off and pick-up will occur at the main entrance to the school. There is NO entry through the Pierce Street side of the Jones School. At the Orientation on September 7, 2018, you will be given a card, by your teacher, with your child’s last name on one side and the teacher’s name on the other. You are expected to keep those cards and use them to drop your child off and pick your child up. Parents/caregivers will no longer be entering the building and bringing their child to the classroom.
A staff member will greet you at the door to the lobby and take your child into the gymnasium where he/she will sit by classroom with a classroom staff person. Please present your card to the staff member waiting. Staff will then escort the children to their lockers/classrooms at the designated time to begin their day.
Please present your card to the staff member waiting. A staff member will gather your student and deliver them to you in the vestibule. You will dismiss through the double doors on the right side of the vestibule.
Morning drop-off 8:20-8:30
Morning pick-up 11:00
Afternoon drop-off 11:50-12:00
Afternoon pick-up 2:30
As this is a new system, this will take us a few days and some flexibility by everyone involved to have this function most efficiently.
