If you are trying to reach the staff about your child coming to Bright Start on days other than your regular days, you must CALL THE BRIGHT START PHONE by 1:30pm the day that you need your child to come. We listen to messages every day before going to the classroom. (You of course must send a note in to the regular classroom teacher also.)

Early release days at Bishop School:
If your child normally attends Bright Start Afterschool on any of the early release/conference days, you will be charged only for the additional hours. For example, if your child’s normal time is 2:15 to 4:15 (2 Hrs.) and s/he attends Bright Start from 11:15-1:15 (2 hrs.), there would be no additional charge. However, if s/he stays longer than 2 hrs., you will incur added charges.
