A Weather Channel radio is constantly on to monitor Emergency Weather situations. In case ot severe weather all children will be taken to the designated safe areas of the building until the situation is over. A complete student and parent/guardian contact list is maintained.
Children sometimes need a positive reminder regarding proper behavior while at play. Our teachers have been chosen for their loving approach with children and sincere desire to help them grow, However, at times children need to be redirected so that they are not harmful to themselves or others. Sometimes they just need to have some quiet time away from the activity to settle down. This should not be confused as a "Time Out", which may be used when warranted and as a final option. Corporal punishment will not be allowed.
Children's records are open only to the child's teacher, the MMO Director, an authorized employee of the licensing agency and the child's parents or legal guardian.
