VPK Attendance Policy

(copy & print this section if needed)

 

Welcome to another wonderful VPK year. Our Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten classes are held Monday through Friday from 9:00AM to 12:00 PM. In the event that your child is picked up after the program ends at 12:00 you will be charged $1.00 per minute late fee to be paid at the time of pick up. Please remember to sign your child in and out of school in the Parent Book located on the front table.  At the end of each month the VPK parents will be asked to sign the VPK Attendance Book.

 

During the school year there may be times when your child can not attend school due to illness, doctor visits, vacations and so forth. During these times First Friends Preschool will require a note. Please see the VPK teachers or the front office for a VPK Absence Form. If your child has more than 36 absences of VPK days during the school year, they must leave the program. In the event of excessive absences, you will be sent notification of days missed to keep you up to date.

 

 Wrap-Around Care students will continue to pay full tuition during non-VPK weeks.

 

Please see me if you have any questions. I know we will have a great school year!
