Specifics

Ladders to Learning follows the Geneseo School Calendar. It is important that all families provide phone numbers, addresses, babysitting and transportation schedules. If any change should occur or need to be made, a note explaining those changes must be sent. A phone call to the classroom or school office may be made for last minute changes.

Attendance

Regular attendance is important for your child's development and is expected when your child is enrolled in Ladders to Learning. If your child does not feel well, or has been running a fever, please keep him/her home. Illnesses and absences should be reported to the Northside School Attendance line at 945-0194. In the case of your child's absence it is your responsibility to also notify Pink's Bus Service at 944-6417.

Transportation

If your child is a bus rider it is your responsibility to walk your child out to the bus each day. You must also meet the bus when your child returns home. If you are not there to meet the bus, your child will be taken back to school. This is for your child's safety and violation of this policy on a regular basis is grounds for dismissal from the program. It is also a good idea to review the bus safety rules with your child regularly.
