Pick Up And Drop Off
For regular classes which begin at 9:00 A.M., the doors open at 8:50 A.M.
We ask that children be picked up promptly after classes are over at 11:30.
We ask that a responsible adult accompany each child into the school,
and be there at pick-up time, in order to allow us to release each child
directly from their classroom to the responsible adult.
Conferences will be held at any time that the parents or the school requests.
We are always happy to have a conference in order to update on a child's
progress, and we will contact parents for a conference anytime we feel
it would be beneficial or necessary. Scheduled conferences for all students
that meet the age requirement for kindergarten are held at the end of
Every spring we hold an open house for parents, grandparents, and relatives.
This is an opportunity to stay as long as you like, do school activities
together, look at the children's artwork, and have refreshments with your
children's friends and families. Parents needing to observe their child
in a classroom setting may set up a visit with a teacher at any time throughout
We serve a snack to the children, middle of the morning, everyday. We
avoid heavily sweetened foods by serving popcorn, crackers, cereals, etc.
If a child has special dietary needs, we will serve them the snack you
provide. Children are invited to share a birthday treat with their class.
We appreciate advanced notice for this.
We provide a map showing other families of our students who live in your
area and can help you to meet and arrange carpools.
We, of course, ask that a child who is sick does not attend school until
he or she is medically ready to return. We will separate a child who becomes
ill while at school from other children and care for them untill a responsible
party can be contacted and pick that child up.
We are closed due to weather on the same days the Rapid City Public Schools
We observe the same national holidays as the Rapid City Public Schools.
We do NOT close on any other days the Public Schools may be closed.
Show and Tell
We have a planned curriculum, which invites the children to bring appropriate
items, which correlate with the current lessons, to share with their class.
This is a lot of fun for the children. We keep you informed as to the
kinds of things to send with your child.
