We welcome parents to view the closing time of each morning.  Please quietly enter the gym from the North entrance at 11:45 am, and watch from the back.  At 12 pm, we will start releasing your child (unless you need your child earlier).  Therefore, please pay special care to the new procedures for checking out your children.  Below is a photo visual of the 2-step process:

(1) Enter through the North entrance only (Registration desk), and a friendly checkout staff with a clipboard will greet you there. Please give then your child's name.
(2) You will follow the green arrow in the photo and wait for the volunteer to bring your smiling child at #2.

 
This year we are using Standard Publishing's VBS.
