What You Need to Know for the First Day of School

School at Congregation of Moses – 9:15-12:15.

Registration Forms & Tuition Payments

Joint Religious School Committee (JRSC) members will be on hand in the lobby from 9:00-9:45 to accept your tuition payment and permission slips and check to be sure you have completed the  Online Registration Form which is required before students are admitted to class.

What Your Student Should Bring

All students need a bag to use as their school bag this year. Put the following things in it:

  • Kindergarten – A baby doll if they have one
  • 1st & 2nd Grade – Their baby book or pictures of themselves as a baby
  • 3rd-7th Grades – Their green folder & black binder from last year
  • 4th-7th Grades – Torah or Tanach if you have one

New Drop-off and Pick-up Policy

To ensure your student’s safety, we have a new policy for Drop-off and Pick-up.

9:00am – Front door will be unlocked and drop-off begins. Come in, enjoy some coffee, chat with friends and make new ones. Please stay with your child until the teachers are prepared for students.

9:10am – Teachers will be prepared and students are allowed into the school wing.

9:15am – Classes start.

9:20am – Front doors are locked. If you arrive after 9:20, bring your child to the south door by the Sofen Room. Ring the bell and Rob or Nora will meet you there and walk your student(s) to class. So that we stay safe and minimize disruption to classes in session, no students should enter the classroom wing from the front door after 9:20 and no student or parent should enter a classroom after 9:20 without Rob or Nora.

12:00-12:15pm – Please don’t pick-up your student(s) during this time so that teachers can review the lesson and explain what students can do at home during the week. If you need to pick up early, plan to do so before noon.

12:15pm – Parents meet their student in the classroom. Teacher will release student only to their parent(s) unless written permission has been given to the Director. This applies to all grades.

Note: Kindergarten parents will pick up their student in the Sofen Room at the south end of the school hallway. 1st & 2nd grade parents can pick up their student in the Library. If parents of these children would like to sit in on the library or music class, please come to the south door by 11:45am and see Nora or Rob.
