CU Announcements

  • Thursday, September 7, 2023

    Thank you for helping make the start of school a success! As you are aware we have a new arrival and dismissal process.  The morning drop-off is sailing along! Continue to follow the directions of staff during morning drop-off to ensure all cars and buses are able to enter and exit quickly.
    In the afternoon - we need your assistance. Dismissal begins at 3:25 p.m.  Walkers will be dismissed from the front door of the building. Plan to meet students who are walking at the front door. All car riders will be brought to the vehicle. Names will be called until all families are uploaded on the pick-up patrol app. Please refrain from parking in the lot during dismissal to help us keep the process running smoothly. The process will get better as we learn this new procedure together.
    If you have any questions, do not hesitate to give us a call at 716-478-4402.
    Dr. Harrington
