Communications with the School

Families should expect to receive a weekly email from their child's teacher (usually sent on Sunday evening) detailing plans for the following week. In addition to communications sent directly from your child's teacher, the school office sends out emails from admin@lucyschool.com. You can help minimize the possibility that our emails will be directed to your Spam or Junk folder by adding this email to your address book.

It is important that we have current parent contact information. Please make sure that your child's emergency contact form contains home, work, and cell numbers for both parents and at least one individual we can contact in the event we cannot reach a parent, in case of illness or emergency. If you change jobs, cell numbers, email addresses, or move to a new street address please make sure that the office and your child's teacher has this updated information.

Drop off & Pick up Procedures

Preschool & Kindergarten Families


Preschool & Kindergarten drop-off at the Red Barn is 8:50 to 9:10 am; pick-up is 2:50 to 3:10 pm Monday - Thursday and 1:50 to 2:10 pm on Fridays. If you arrive before 8:50 am, please park in the parking lot and wait until 8:50 am to get into the drop-off line.


Please use the following drop-off/pick-up routine: Drive around the Red Barn and pull up behind the last stopped vehicle in front of the building. We will meet your car and help your child out of (or into) the car. Children must exit (or enter) through the door by the curb – they should not step on the road and walk around the car. Please stay in your car! We will attempt to unload/load multiple cars at a time so, at drop-off, please have your child ready to exit when you pull up. Once this procedure is completed, follow the car in front of you to the exit. IMPORTANT: Do not drive around cars in front of you unless you are directed to do so by a member of the school staff. If you are late dropping off your child, and miss meeting the teacher at your car, please park your car and walk your child into their building to meet up with their teacher.


When you reach the building, unlock your child's door and lower the front window and initial the sign-in/out sheet; school staff will help your child out of/into the car. This will expedite the process and increase safety. To give us sufficient time to prepare your child for pick up, please place your child’s name on a piece of cardboard in the left corner of your windshield. If you are in a carpool, the names of all the children you will be picking up that day should be included. Anyone picking up your child must have your written permission. Please keep us updated in writing of all persons permitted to pick-up your child. If on any day there is a pick-up change, send in a signed note with your permission for the new person to pick up your child.
