Frequently Asked Questions

What are school hours?
For children under the age of one, hours are 7:30am until 5:30pm (4:30on Fridays), or any hours falling within that time frame. The Preschool hours (for the Ones through Pre-K class) are 7:30am until 1:00pm (half day students) or 7:30am-5:30pm (4:30 on Fridays).
What if I pick up my child late from school?
Each family is given a ten-minute grace period to pick up their child after their program ends based on the school front office clock. Each family is allowed one time a year to be late (beyond the ten-minute grace period). Late fees are paid per child, not per family. A child is considered late when they are picked up after your ten-minute grace period. Late Fee charges per child are as follows: after 10 minutes the fee is $15 and then every 5 minutes after that the fee increases by $5 based on the wall clock in the front office.
Can my child bring toys to school?
Please leave toys at home. We have many wonderful toys and games at the Day School. Bringing toys from home causes issues with sharing and safety. Children can bring a transition object for nap time or for when they first arrive, but it is not meant to be a toy that will be played with throughout the day.
Does my child need to stay home if sick?
Parents are requested to please keep their children at home if they show signs of illness. A parent will be notified when children need to be sent home because of illness. Please let us know if your child is exhibiting any symptoms of which we should be aware of. To protect all children enrolled, your child must stay at home if he/she exhibits any of the following symptoms: • Temperature of 101 or higher degrees. • Diarrhea (more than one abnormally loose stool within 24 hr. period) • Any undiagnosed rash. • Conjunctivitis (pink eye) • Stiff neck • Pediculosis (head lice). • Severe coughing, causing the child to become red or blue in the face or make a whooping sound • Rapid or difficult breathing • Exposed, open skin lesions • Unusual dark urine and/or gray or white stool • Yellowish skin or eyes or • Any other unusual sign or symptom of illness If your child develops any of the above symptoms while at school, we will isolate him/her and contact you and it is MANDATORY for your child to be picked up as soon as possible. CHILDREN MUST BE SYMPTOM-FREE FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE RETURNING TO SCHOOL.
Do I need to notify the school if my child is absent?
We would consider it a courtesy if you would notify us before 9:30 a.m. if your child is going to be absent, and the absence has not been previously arranged. This is intended for your child’s protection.
What are the Birthday rules?
We recognize that birthdays are special days for children. However, the school has some very important procedures regarding birthday parties with which we request all parents to comply. 1) Party invitations may not be distributed during school hours unless all students in the class are invited. 2) Please do not schedule parties on Shabbat (Friday night and Saturday until dark) or Jewish festivals. Such events, even if they are inadvertently planned, are awkward for those who have been invited but who will not violate Shabbat or the holidays. 3) In-school celebrations must be cleared with the teacher as to day and time. All food brought to the school for the parties should meet with the dietary requirements. There are many kosher products marked with a U or K available at any supermarket. Please help to ensure that the traditions of our school are maintained and meet the “Dairy Kosher” standards. Ask if you are unsure. We look forward to celebrating your child’s special day. Thank you for your cooperation.
Can my child wear sandals or flip flops?
All walking children must wear closed toed shoes with a back strap or full closed back. Walkers in the Infant room will wear shoes outdoors only. During summer, children may wear flip flops or pool shoes during water time but otherwise must have closed-toe shoes with the back strap for the rest of the day.
Do you have a "lost and found"?
Please mark each student’s clothing and articles to avoid confusion over lost articles. The office maintains a collection of lost articles turned in by others. Please check this frequently for misplaced items. Clothing will be donated to a charity if not claimed.
