Q.  Who do I contact if I need to pick my child up early/change my dismissal plans?
     A.  Please contact our main office at info@siskids.org.  We appreciate all changes to be emailed prior to 2 pm if possible.
 
Q.  Who do I contact if my child will be absent/late?
     A.  Please contact our main office at info@siskids.org.  We appreciate all changes be emailed prior to 9 am if possible.
 
Q.  My child forgot something, where can I drop it off?
     A.  If the item is urgent, please bring it to the main office and we will ensure it reaches your child.  However, if the object was
     your child's responsibility, consider letting this be a learning moment.  We'll make sure they are fed, have water, and can
     participate in classroom activities; but the inconvenience of missing an item can help students learn responsibility and
     accountability in a safe and supportive environment. 
 
Q.  How safe is the campus and building?  Are doors always locked?  Do you have the required drills?
     A.  Our campus is very safe.  All of our outside doors are locked and require a key to enter the building.  All visitors and guests    
     are verified by the main office when they check in.  We follow all state guidelines for emergency drills and plans.  CLICK HERE

Q.  Do you provide transportation for my child?
     A.  While SIS does not have any buses, our local school district does provide transportation for students that live within 15
     miles from our campus.  You must contact your local school district's bus garage to set up bussing for your child. 
 
Q.  Do the students go outside every day?
     A.  Our students go outside every day as long as the weather allows.  All PE classes are held outside on our beautiful 60+ acre
     campus unless the weather is unsafe.  Students at all grade levels have recess daily and teachers will often teach classes  
     outdoors.
