Weather Closing: APA Preschool will make our own decision if we cancel school or not. Even if we still have school and the roads are bad, your child is not obligated to come however, the state does require a phone call to let us know your child will not be attending for that day. We will email out our decision by 8am if we were to cancel.
Friendly Reminders: Winter is officially here! Please make sure to bring a change of shoes, every day, that your child does not wear outside in the snow. The salt and melted snow can ruin our preschool floors and carpets. Thank you, we really appreciate it. Please make sure to arrive to school a few minutes before our start time of 9 am. This will allow you time to get your child’s belongings hung up. Lastly, please make sure to take them to the restroom before coming into the classroom for the day.
