Welcome to Garfield Public Preschool Annex 1


We are so excited to start our school year. The teachers have been anticipating the student’s arrival at our school. We look forward to meeting you at our Meet and Greet on Tuesday, September 6, 2022 at 1:00 pm to 1:30pm. Make sure to bring the invitation with you. The preschool will have half day sessions (8:05 am – 12:05 pm) the rest of the week - Wednesday, September 7th - 9th.  Full day sessions will begin on Monday, September 12, 2022, which are 8:05 am to 2:25 pm. If you have signed up your child for before or aftercare at the YMCA please let your classroom teacher know.

The students will be learning new things daily; teachers will be sending home a form "My Week at Preschool" check your child’s folder daily and you can talk to your child about the activities that they participated in during the school day. This district will be providing free breakfast to all students, parents or guardians must fill out the lunch application on the parent portal to see if they qualify for free, reduced or paid lunch. If your child has allergies to any food, please make sure to notify the classroom teacher and school nurse.

Make sure that your child has a change of clothing in his/her backpack, that we will keep here at the school, to change into if they should have a need to be changed. Students should wear their school uniforms to come to school. The uniforms may be purchased at either YNK Uniform Store in Clifton. Our school will be selling school spirit shirts the first few weeks of school, if you are interested in purchasing them the link will be provided to you by the classroom teacher.

Students at the preschool will be practicing on how to exit the school during an emergency drill. I will provide you with a note letting you know when we have our first fire drill and when we have our safety drills. Please be careful in our parking lot, as many of our students are small, and you may not see them when backing out of a parking space.

Please make sure to talk to your child about school, and about lining up outside for arrival and dismissal. Remember to kiss your child good-bye and let them know that you will be outside when they get out. Teachers and administration are always willing to meet and talk with you, you can reach out to us via e-mail or by calling us. Teachers will only be able to return phone calls during their prep time.

For the safety of your child, we ask that all paperwork that was mailed to your home, be brought into school on the first day. All forms are due no later than September 7th.

If you need anything, please feel free to contact me.

I wish all of you a healthy, happy and safe September!

   Registration for new incoming students is on-going. Please check the district website for additional information.
