Welcome to the 2023-24 school year at the North Canton Primary Preschool (NCPP). The staff and I are looking forward to seeing our students and families! Open House will be on August 31 from 4:30p.m.-6:30p.m. Please bring your child's school supplies at that time. Your teacher will be sharing important program and classroom information with you.

Principal and Teacher Communication with Families
The only hard copy letter mailed home is a July information letter. It is extremely important that the email you provided us at your child's registration day for our database system is one that you will check every Friday after 4:00 p.m. We do not mail home newsletters or other letters of information to parents during the school year. The principal and the teachers use email to send out a weekly update to keep you informed about what the children are currently doing in the classrooms and any upcoming school events. If we place any information in your child's daily take-home folder we will notify you in the Friday emails. Please call the office if you have any questions regarding your email listed in our district database.
School Closing Notifications
You will not be notified by the NCPP if school is canceled or delayed. If there is ever a decision to cancel or delay the start of school, the Superintendent will inform the community, families, and staff. The local television and radio stations will be notified and our District Phone Messenger System will call and notify the parents by using the phone number that is on file in our district database. Call Mrs. Hill (330-497-5608) if you have questions regarding the phone number that is listed for your family in our district database.

Calling your child off school

Appropriate Attire for Preschool
The children are physically active at the ECC. In addition to our physical education classes the children also play on our indoor and outdoor playground equipment every day. We are fortunate in that we can provide large motor development all year long regardless of the weather. Please consider the following suggestions:
1. No heeled shoes, sandals, or flip flops
2. Wear shoes and socks. Send your child with a coat, mittens, and hat every day during the cold weather. Wear comfortable clothes that may get dirty or stained.
Emergency Child Pick Up
Please make sure that the person you have listed as an emergency pick-up is willing and available to come get your child in case of an emergency or illness.
**Always call ahead if someone new is picking up your child for any reason.
