Our school observes the same school calendar as Mukilteo Public Schools. Therefore, our school will be closed in observance of major holidays, plus a mid-winter and a spring break. Our school WILL be in session on those days that Mukilteo School District is off due to in-service or staff training.
Each month your child will bring home a calendar detailing the coming months activities. Also, look for a snack list. Snack is the responsibility of the parents on a rotating basis.
Parents must sign their child in and sign their child out each day. If someone else is to call for your child, you MUST inform the teacher in writing. That person picking up your child may be asked to show photo identification. Your student will NOT be allowed to leave with another person unless prior arrangements have been made. We now have a fence around our wetland, but still be mindful of this attractive area. Please be safe and always accompany your child in and out of the preschool building.
Please notify your child’s teacher if your child will be absent from school due to illness or vacation. Monthly tuition payments must be made in order to hold your child’s place in class.
If your child has to drop out of our program, we ask that you give us a two week notice to allow for possible tuition refunds and also to open enrollment to others.
For your child’s protection and for the protection of others, please do not send your child if he/she has a persistent cough, nausea, or fever. You will be notified if a communicable disease has infected any of our school children. If your child is too sick to participate in our daily activities or play outside at recess he/she should be kept at home.
School employees are only allowed to administer medications in an emergency situation (i.e. allergic reaction-EpiPen or Benadryl). That medication must be provided by the parent. Any other medications can only be administered by a parent.
All children (with the exception of the children enrolled in the Mom and Me class) must be toilet trained prior to attending Harbour Pointe Christian School. If an “accident” should occur, parents will be notified.
Please ARRIVE no earlier and PICK-UP no earlier than five (5) minutes prior to your school session. Parents MUST escort their child(ren) into the classroom. We are not equipped, nor do we employ staff, to do after-school care. Please be prompt in picking up your child(ren)! A late fee of $1.00 per minute will be added to monthly tuition if chronic tardiness occurs for pick-up.
INCLEMENT WEATHER & STAFF ILLNESS
If Mukilteo School Distirct is closed due to inclement weather, Harbour Pointe Christian Preschool will also be closed. If Mukilteo School District is 2 Hours late, HPC will be CLOSED. A limited number of make-up days will be built into our school calendar each year. We will try our best to make up days that are missed, however, we may not be able to make up ALL missed days due to teacher contract dates for that calendar year. HPCP DOES NOT GUARANTEE the make-up of ALL missed days. Additionally, when any illness occurs that would prevent us from meeting our required staff/child ratio, we may close the preschool.
There will be no credit or refund for the days the preschool is closed due to the weather, power failure, or widespread illness.
PLEASE DRESS YOUR CHILD FOR PLAY! Children should not be hampered in their ability to take advantage of all that school has to offer.
Tuition is due by the 10th of the month. A $25 late fee will be added to your tuition if paid after the 10th of the month.
