K-6

Before School

The YMCA on site program is available for before and after school care for students 6-12. Please call (513) 363-0977 to arrange for care for your child. Kdg students can also attend the Dater Before School Care program.  For more information contact the school office.

Drop-off

For car riders: You will enter the main driveway and stay to the right and into the circle to the right of the flagpole and then pull up along the sidewalk to let your child out. To make this time smoother please have your child on the right hand side of your vehicle, all bags packed and ready and coat on. Staff is there from 8:45 to 9:15 a.m. to help your child get inside. Please drop off your child before 9:15 a.m.

Once in the building, children go to the cafeteria for free breakfast and then report to the auditorium. If not eating, the children report directly to the auditorium. At 9:10 a.m. all children go to their classrooms. If your child arrives after 9:15 a.m., he/she must report to the office for a tardy slip.

For bus riders: Paraprofessionals are stationed at the bus drop off to greet and direct the children to the cafeteria for breakfast and then report to the auditorium. Everyone is welcome to a free breakfast. Dater staff will be stationed in the cafeteria and throughout the halls to direct students. If your child has any problems on the bus, please call the main office.

Class Time

Each level (3-6, 6-9 and 9-12) functions differently. We highly encourage you to spend some time in the classroom and to attend the Parent Orientation in August and Open House in September to learn more about what your child's daily routine.

From K through 9-12 level, each child attends "specials" which include gym, art, music, library and technology once a week. Your child's classroom teacher will let you know what day of our cycle they will go, so they can be dressed appropriately for gym.

Dismissal/Pick-up

Dismissal occurs in the loop in front of the main entrance at 3:45 p.m. Give your child’s name to the staff member with the walkie-talkie. Car riders will be waiting with their teachers in the gymnasium until their name is called. There will be lots of staff to supervise the children as they exit to the sidewalk for pick-up.

Aftercare

The YMCA on-site program is available for before and after school care for students 6-12. Please call (513) 363-0977 to arrange for care for your child.
