Sign-in/out Procedures

Attendance records and daily attendance tracking is required. The parent or authorized representative must record the child’s time of arrival and departure.

Students may be dropped off in the preschool classroom starting at 7:40 a.m. Please park your car on Almond Avenue or Mt. Diablo Blvd., enter through the Almond Avenue doors and walk into the preschool classroom with your child. After 8:00 a.m., you must enter through the main office on Grant Street. Note the time of arrival and sign your child into class. State law requires a full signature, not just initials. A fee of $5.00 will be applied to your account per every missing signature. Leave your child with a staff member in the classroom who must do a visual health check. A brief and confident goodbye conveys to your child that this is a safe place.

Follow the same procedures for pick up. Keep in mind that the school cannot release your child to anyone other than parents and people listed on the emergency form, State of California Form LIC700 – Identification and Emergency Information unless you have furnished us with written authorization. Identification may be required.
