If you have a child in our preschool program, you need to complete the CBR form and mail it to the address on the form. When you receive your approval, please bring a copy to the office. This form is used to run a background check on adults that want to help out at school/go on field trips.
If you need a form, please stop by and pick up a form or call the office and we will be happy to mail you a form.
Prearranged Absence Form
During the school year, if you are planning on going on vacation and your child will be absent from school for more than 1 day, please maker sure you complete a prearranged absence form 1 week before the event. This will give their teacher time to prepare the work your child will be missing during his/her absence.
If you need a form, you can pick one up at the front office or we will be happy to e-mail it to you.
