Parent Pick-Up Schedule
If you typically pick up your children after school, please follow normal procedures adjusted for the secondary, early release times, above. Parents who wish to personally pick up their children earlier than this schedule permits can always do so, but must follow their school’s required procedure for early dismissal.

Spartan Kids will remain open until our 5:45 closing time. Discovery Kids will be open until 5 p.m. We ask that you please pick up your children as soon as you are able while also allowing for a safe commute for you and for our staff. Rest assured that staff will remain in buildings until all children have been picked up. If your child will not be attending Spartan Kids this afternoon, please contact Spartan Kids at 952-449-8363.
