The Preschool utilizes a live drop-off and pick up process. If you choose not to participate in live dop-off or live-pick-up, you must park in an unassigned space in our lot and walk your child to the front entrance.

Please review the map to ensure you are aware of the locations for entering and exiting the parking lot and drop- off/pick-up area.

Drop-Off Procedure:
Please review the procedures.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.  We ask that all parents/guardians and any other adult responsible for the drop off adhere to our new procedures. 

**Students will be removed from buses first.
**All families of non-bus students will be provided a color-specific tag matching the color assigned to your child’s classroom and including the teacher’s name. This tag must be displayed on the passenger side dashboard where our staff will be able to see it during drop off. If your child typically takes the bus, but you would like a tag, or you require more than one tag, please let us know by contacting Ms. Delisle at 978-921-6100, X21702, and we will send additional tags home with your child.
**For live drop off, cars must stay in line along the drop off area.  Drivers must stay in their vehicles and drive up as close to the front doors as possible without covering the crosswalk.
**Staff members will remove each child from the car.  Please note that the staff member removing your child may not be staff within your child’s classroom, but are staff within the program. All staff are required to wear identification badges. If you do not want staff from the program removing your child from the car, you will need to park in the lot and walk your child to the door.
**Once your child is safely removed from the car and your car door is securely closed, please drive out of the lot.
Once the car in front of you has moved on, please pull up.

In order for participation in the live drop off, your child’s car seat must be located on the passenger side of the car so removal can be done from the sidewalk. If your car seat is not on this side of the car, you will need to park in the lot and walk your child to the door. Please use the crosswalks and do not walk between cars.

Pick-Up Procedures:

**For live pick-up, cars must stay in line along the drop-off/pick-up area. Drivers must stay in their vehicles and drive up as close to the front doors as possible without covering the crosswalk.
**Staff members will place your child in the car seat.
**Once your child is safely placed and buckled and your car door is securely closed, please drip out of the lot. 
**Once the car in front of you has moved on, please pull up.

In order for participation in the live pick-up, your child’s car seat must be located on the passenger side of the car so removal can be done from the sidewalk. If your car seat is not on this side of the car, you will need to park in the lot and walk to the front entrance area to get your child. Please use the crosswalks and do not walk between cars.
