  • Families will need to label each:  “am snack,” “pm snack,” and “lunch,” and put their child’s name on each.
  • Families are responsible for providing diapers, wipes, crib sheets for their children’s cots, and keeping at least three changes of clothes and socks at school for their children.
  • We do not require uniforms, but, to promote safety and independence, families are responsible for bringing their children to school with shoes on each day that adhere with Velcro – i.e., not with shoelaces, zippers, or buckles.
