NOTE: Second graders must use the ASP74 drop-in service.

Drop-In Service can be arranged on the day that it is needed by calling Michelle Raum in the Lower School — Early Childhood office, 212-497-6550.

Drop-in students must be signed out by the person picking them up.

Due to all-faculty meetings, there is no drop-in service on Wednesdays.
