Parents must provide a daily lunch for their child.


Staff and children are required to wear masks, unless being physically active. This follows the Huntsville City Schools safety protocols during the pandemic.


Each child will be checked in upon arrival and must be checked out by an adult listed on the registration form. If someone who is not listed on the form comes to pick up a child, the parent/guardian will be contacted to ensure the individual has permission to take the child.
