The Early Childhood Center's Orientation Information


Welcome to the Early Childhood Center!


All registered students are invited to attend our Getting to Know Me Day on Wednesday, August 30th. Once classes are finalized, teacher letters will be sent out with important information regarding this orientation. 


During your 45-minute session, students and parents will meet the classroom teacher(s) and staff and receive important information regarding class and school expectations. The bus company and PTO will also be available at the school to answer any questions. ALL students must register with the bus company (First Student). Bus routes/information are published in the Sunrise. Please verify that the bus information is correct during your visit.


Students will receive their school ID lanyard which should be worn every day for at least one month. This ID will contain the necessary bus information (number and drop off).


The Getting to Know Me Day is NOT a full day of school (students will arrive to their session with their parent(s) and leave together after their visit).

The first FULL DAY of school at the ECC is on Thursday, 31 August 2017. On Thursday, bus transportation will be provided for all registered students. Morning drop off will be at the Ferri Cafeteria doors from 8:00 am- 8:10 am. Students will be dismissed (buses and parent pick up) from the Early Childhood Center beginning at 2:30 pm.


The school hours are 8:15 am- 2:30 pm. Any student arriving after 8:15 am will be marked tardy and must be signed in at the ECC.

We are all excited for our year ahead and we look forward to meeting everyone at our August 30th orientation session.
