It is extremely important that we be able to get in contact with you in case of emergency, sickness, etc. If you need to update your emergency contact people and/or authorized pick up people, please see Mrs. Darlene.
  • We need to have updated physical and immunizations information each time your child goes for a well-baby visit. You can grab a form from the office shelf or from the classroom.
