AM hours: 8:30 to 11:45 PM hours: 12:20 to 3:35
Fridays are reserved for evaluations, conferences, staff training, and itinerant services.
Regular attendance is important for your child to fully experience preschool. If for some reason, your child will be absent, please call the preschool office (740-928- 1915) and leave a message for your child’s teacher before or within 30 minutes of the beginning of your child’s session. Six consecutive unexcused absences or sporadic attendance will result in a referral to the Director for possible dismissal from the program.
Be aware of the buses dropping off students and please do not park alongside the curb. Please use the parking lot located in front of Jackson B. Students can be walked up the hill and dropped off to a preschool staff member by the door or waiting in the hallway. When all children are assembled in the hallway they will enter the classroom. If you arrive after the preschool session has begun and the preschool door is closed, you will need to enter Jackson Intermediate B by the main office door. Please understand that we are required to maintain student to staff ratios at all times and cannot permit a staff member to leave the room after a session begins. You may have to wait a bit in the main office lobby with your child until we can assign staff coverage to receive your child.
Please park your car in the main parking lot. Once the transported children are on the bus, car riders will be dismissed individually to their guardian/parent from the preschool hallway. In the beginning, until we recognize parents/guardians, we will ask for a photo ID
before releasing a child to an individual. The individual picking up and signing out the child
may be asked for a valid photo ID. If an individual not listed on the form, comes to pick up
your child, we will not release your child until we can verify permission and identity by
contacting you. These procedures are for the safety of your child.
Visiting and Volunteering
All parents and/or guardians are encouraged to visit, volunteer and become involved in the preschool. Our volunteers are important and special. Volunteers are welcome in the classroom and at the Lakewood Local Preschool main office. Opportunities for volunteering include assisting on field trips, preparing items for the classroom, making phone calls to other parents and attending PTO Meetings. However, we ask that you pre-arrange a time with your child’s teacher to volunteer to maximize your volunteering time.
Lakewood local School District may provide transportation to and from preschool, with the following limitations:
- The requested pick-up and drop-off sites are within the boundaries of the Lakewood Local School District.
- The requested pick-up and drop-off sites are within a reasonable distance from other preschool bus stops.
- Centralized "pick-up points" may be established where you and your child would meet the bus for transport to the preschool.
- Busing by Lakewood Local School District is a privilege and not a requirement (unless specifically written and justified in a child's IEP for "special transportation").
