Children will be dismissed only to the authorized individuals listed on the child's emergency contact/parental consent form. Please notify the school in writing or by phone if there are any changes. In a child custody situation both parents are able to pick up the child, unless a court order stating any restrictions is kept on file in the preschool office. Always keep the school notified of changes in address, employment, and telephone numbers.

Please keep your child home when any of the following are present:

Anytime a child is absent with a communicable disease:

please report these illnesses immediately to the office or teachers at the time of diagnosis. We will inform other parents to look for the symptoms in case their child has contracted the disease. Should any child become ill at preschool, the child will be isolated and the parent or guardian will be contacted immediately, so that the child may be picked up. In the event the preschool is unable to reach the parent or guardian, it shall be authorized to contact any of the emergency contact people listed on the emergency contact/parental consent form to pick up the child. When your child is absent, please notify the office or teacher. Knowing the reason for the absence can help the teacher interact with your child appropriately.

The Westmoreland Intermediate Unit will provide speech screening and developmental testing on parental requests. If your child has been or is currently recceiving service from the Westmoreland Intermediate Unit or any early intervention agency, this should be communicated to the teacher, so the preschool can insure proper scheduling for these agencies.

When the Norwin School District Schools are closed due to inclement weather there will be NO SCHOOL. If there is a 1 or 2 hour delay, we will delay 1 hour in the morning. School closing announcements may be heard on local radio and television channels.

Your child may bring a toy or item daily for free play. Please avoid gun, knife, action figure, etc. toys. If your child has an item or toy relating to the weekly unit of study you may want to encourage him/her to bring that item. Remember to label the toy with your child's name.

If your child is having a birthday and you would like to provide a treat or snack for the whole class, please make arrangements with the teacher. We would prefer no cupcakes.
