Arrival and Departure
Please enter the driveway on the south and exit on the north. A staff member will greet your child at the car and take the child into the school. If you wish to come inside, please park outside of the circle drive and bring your child in. If for some reason a greeter does not meet you, park outside the circle drive and bring your child in. Make certain that a member of the staff is aware that your child has arrived. Do not leave your car in the circle drive without a driver. Your best intentions might cause a serious traffic hazard. Feel free to come inside the school to observe or pick up your child, but please park outside of the circle drive for this purpose. Children become apprehensive if their ride is late. Please call the school if you have a delay. Your child will not be released to a person other than the regular driver unless prior arrangements have been made.
Morningside School requires certification of compliance with the State of Utah immunization against contagious diseases program. You may apply for a waiver should you have personal, medical, or religious reasons to delay or avoid vaccination. If you need assistance or more information, contact the Bear River Health Department at 792-6500. Inform the school if your child has a prolonged illness, may have been exposed to a contagious disease, or is on any medication. In cases of illness, please call the school in a timely manner even if you are not yet sure that the child is contagious. Report the student’s status and keep your child at home until the nature of the illness is clear and the child is well.
Though we expect the children to arrive clean, properly dressed and well-groomed, be aware students sometimes participate in painting and other hands-on activities which might soil clothes. Although aprons are worn for messy work they do not always catch everything. Please dress your child in comfortable play clothing and send outdoor clothing appropriate for the season. Preschool students need to have a change of clothes at school in case of accidents. Please label removable clothing items with your child’s name.
Students who are at the school during lunch hour (11:30-12:30) bring a lunch from home. Please label your child’s lunch box.
Each child’s birthday is celebrated at Morningside School, even if it doesn’t fall on a school day. Parents are welcome to send a special treat to share at snack time. We only permit commercially prepared food, or fresh fruits and vegetables.
Show and Tell
Children are not to bring items from home unless specifically requested by the teacher. This information will appear on the calendar.
Animal friends can be fun and educational. However, due to allergies and other considerations, staff permission must be obtained before a pet may visit Morningside School. The parent MUST remain at the school with and care for the pet.
