** We are fortunate to have a security guard at each site every day and crossing guards to assist the children during drop off and pick up.

** Do know that we have a fully certified and registered nurse at each site to assist the children. Janet Lecce is our nurse at SMS and Cathy Hetrick is our nurse at West End.

Please note that if you have registered your child for the RAS program, that program will take place at West End only. Your children should be picked up at 3:00 from West End. Any questions about the RAS program should be directed to the RAS supervisors.

** We have registered close to six hundred children for our summer playground program. The children will have a great time, will make new friends and enjoy coming everyday. Thank you for your support.

We wish you and your family a great summer.
