We will pick up kindergarten students from their homeroom when school ends and take them to the chess classroom.  First graders and up will go directly to the chess class after school, in either room A9 or A10.

After Class Drop-off:
For Kindergarten and 1st grade students who are in afterschool programs after chess class, we will be happy to help take to their respective after school classroom, if they need help.

After Class Parent Pick-up: 
For parents and guardians who are picking up their children after chess class:  PLEASE, PLEASE pick-up your children on time.  Please tell your child to stay with us coaches and not wander off, in the event in the event you are late.  We have other classes and other obligations and cannot stay with children for parents who are late in picking up their children.  We had one parent who was over 20 minutes late for pickup last semester. We will drop students off at the front office, in the event parents are late in picking up their child.
