Absences and Attendance

If your child will not be present when scheduled to attend,
please CALL THE SCHOOL @ (253) 473-4848.

Arrival and Departure

  • Children will be escorted in to the classroom about five to ten minutes before the session begins (no earlier, please)
  • Our safety policy requires that parents must sign their children in and out with a full signature, not initials.
  • Notify the teacher in writing if there are any changes in who is authorized to take your child from the preschool. 
  • Pick up your child promptly at the end of the class.

School Closure Policy

In case of bad weather, follow the Tacoma School District closures that are announced on the radio for full day closures.  If schools are two hours late, we will meet one hour late.  Classes missed because of bad weather will be made up after two days are missed per class.


We ask all parents to take turns supplying a nutritious, low-sugar treat.  A box of whole grain crackers, fruit, or juice for the whole class would be appreciated.

At times the preschooler will prepare their own snacks as a center activity. ** Check the Monthly Activity and Snack Chart for your turn. ** 

Table manners, social interaction in acceptable ways, and becoming acquainted with a variety of nutritious foods are some of the skills learned during snack time. 

Download the Monthly Activity and Snack Chart to see when it is your child's turn to bring snacks.

Here are some suggestions:

  Cheese slices  Bread sticks   Whole grain bread 
  Yogurt  Vegetables   Fruit
  Fruit juices , Milk  Bagels, Rice cakes  Crackers

Nutritious treats for your child’s birthday are welcome. Also, feel free to provide a snack from your cultural background. 

* Please bring snack ready to serve *
