After reading the Temple Emanuel ECDC Family Handbook please review the following policies and procedures.  Then complete and submit the form below. 

Please note that lunches should not include any foods that contain peanuts, peanut butter, tree nuts or any other type of nut. (To assist teachers, please label sun butter sandwiches.) Families are also asked to refrain from sending pork or shellfish products.

Birthdays and Holidays
We ask families to refrain from bringing food or treats of any type to the school for special occasions. We welcome your participation in other aspects of celebration. Parents, for example, may visit to read a story or may bring a fruit snack. Please coordinate with your child’s teacher.

9:00 am and 11:30 am are the periods of highest traffic at ECDC when parents are dropping off and picking up children. During those periods, specifically from 8:50-9:10 am and 11:20-11:40 am, the ECDC director or appointed staff member will monitor the school entrance. The door may be left open for other ECDC families during these two periods when the door is being monitored.

At all other times, parents must use their key fob for entrance and may not permit others behind them to enter. A parent who does not have his/her fob must state the first and last name of the child whom is being picked up and the name of the child’s teacher.
Parents use main (central) school door only for entrance and exit.

Parking Lot
To maintain safety, we ask all families to drive at 5 miles per hour in the parking lot. The parking lot is one-way during school hours. Enter on the playground-side of the building from Bower Hill and exit at the light at Bower Hill and Concordia Way.

Please call or email the office to report your child’s absence and the reason for the absence. If your child has a contagious disease (chicken pox, pink eye, scarlet fever) or parasitic condition (head lice, scabies, pinworm), please let us know so that we can advise the other parents that their children may have been exposed to the illness or condition.

  • Children with pink eye, scarlet fever, or strep throat must be on medication for at least 24 hours before returning to school.
  • Children with head lice, scabies or pin worm must have signed approval from a medical professional before returning to school.
  • All pox or blisters of children with chicken pox or hand, foot and mouth disease must be crusted or dry before the child can return to school.
  • Children with a fever, diarrhea, or vomiting are not to be in school and cannot return for 24 hours after the fever, diarrhea, or vomiting has stopped.
  • Children with a fresh cold and runny nose are not to be in school.
