Dear Families of Children enrolled in Orde Day Care Preschool program

Below is an update on a number of items that will be changing this week

  1. Hours of operation for preschool children

Orde Day Care Preschool program will run from 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. If you have a child in the school age or fdk program you may arrive at 8:00 a.m. with your preschool child to allow them to use the before school care program in the morning. If you do not have a child in one of our older programs, we ask that you do not bring your preschooler in until after 8:30 a.m., as we are giving priority to our fdk and school age children and the line for your child to gain entry may be longer than usual.

  1. Staggered entry and pick up:

To start the school year, we will not be providing our preschool parents a drop off or pick up time (different than our summer program). However, we will monitor this new approach over the next few weeks to see if it is working or if we have to return to specific drop off and pick up times. Please ensure that if you are picking up at the end of the day that you arrive by 4:45 to allow yourself enough time, as there may be a line when you arrive to pick up.

  1. Drop off and Pick up area:

The drop off and pick up preschool children will be conducted in the small yard. (kindergarten yard) from 8:00/8:30-9:00 a.m. in the morning and 3:30-5:00 in the afternoon.


We ask that you respect the markers indicated on the ground of the small playground as you wait for your child to gain entry into the daycare/school.


If your child comes after this time and children are in the yard, please do not come into the yard and ask one of the staff on duty to tell the school office that you have arrived. Please wait behind the temporary fencing just inside the small yard walkway


  1. Mask wearing- Masks are required for preschool children when they are outside of the classroom. ie in the hallways. Please supply your child with a mask to wear for this purpose.
