Frequently asked questions from the handbook:


What are the Preschool hours?

Morning classes meet from 9:00am - 11:30am.  Afternoon classes meet from 1:00pm - 3:30pm.


What time can I drop my child off?

Morning drop-off time is after 8:50am and afternoon drop-off time is after 12:50pm.


What should I do if someone other than usual is picking up my child?      

Parents need to notify the teacher if someone other than the usual ride is picking the child up through a note or a phone call to the school office. We reserve the right to check I.D. if we are unfamiliar with the person picking up your child.


What should I do if I am going to be late picking up my child?

If you know you are going to be late picking your child up from Preschool, PLEASE CALL THE SCHOOL OFFICE TO NOTIFY THEM AND TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS.  If a child is not picked up within 15 minutes after dismissal, then the child will be sent to the daycare, where the parent may be charged a dollar a minute until the parent arrives for the child.

Where do I drop my child off for Preschool?

When dropping your child off for school, you may drop them off in front of the school building. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE YOUR VEHICLE UNATTENDED IN THE DRIVE LANE. If you are going to walk your child into the school, you must park in a parking spot in front of the church. FOR THE SAFETY OF THE CHILDREN, DO NOT PASS ANY VEHICLE OR BUS STOPPED IN THE DRIVE LANE; PLEASE WAIT IN LINE.

Where do I pick my child up from Preschool?

When school has ended the teacher will walk the children over to the church building. They will be released through the front doors of the church. Your child’s teacher will dismiss the children to each parent.


What about illness or absences?

If your child will be absent, please call prior to class time. Leave a message on the answering machine if necessary. It is important that the teacher know. For the protection of the class, we cannot accept sick children. If your child has a bad cold, fever, upset stomach, eye infection, or strep throat, please keep him/her home. In the event of a sudden illness at school, we will do all that is possible to contact the parent and make the child comfortable until they arrive.


How will I know if Preschool is closed due to inclement weather?

We will post on this website homepage when Preschool will be closed unexpectedly.  You can also check our facebook page.  In addition, information is available on WCBK RADIO (102.3 FM) and/or television channels 4, 6, 8, 13, and 59. Please do not call the school, as staff may not be in the office.

If Martinsville Schools are closed due to inclement weather, Preschool will also be closed.

What if Martinsville Schools are on a two-hour delay?

If Martinsville Schools are on a two-hour delay, morning classes at Preschool will be in session from 9:30am - 12:00pm.  Afternoon class times will remain the same.
