• CSCS Pre-School begins at: 9:30 and ends at: 3:30

     Drop off and pick up procedures are:

    All arrivals and dismissals for Pre-K Before Care/After Care and the regular school day (9:20-9:30 am & 3:30-3:35 pm) will take place at the Collins School’s side entrance closest to the BOE building.

    Parents should park in the lot near the Collins School sign and escort their student via the crosswalk to the side entrance with the awning, where teachers will meet them.

    The teacher-parent handoff at dismissal will take place at the side awning entrance. If your family has older siblings in the Collins School, please make us aware and we will have them dismissed at the side door with their Pre-K sibling.


    Late Arrival/Early Dismissal:

    All late arrivals and early dismissals will be facilitated through the building’s main office. When arriving late or picking-up early, please expect to show photo identification, give your student's name, and the teacher’s name. If someone other than the student's parent or guardian will be picking up please send in a note with their name, date, and time of pick-up.


    We ask that after your child is settled-in, that you say your good-byes quickly. We understand that the first few weeks of January may be a little harder to make the separation, but there are a few things you can do to help ease the transition.


    1. Develop a routine that works for you and your child.
    2. Always say good-bye and communicate with them when you’ll be back.
    3. Reinforce that you support and feel comfortable with them being here.
