Morning Start is an early morning option for Hammarskjold families that need childcare before school starts. Morning Start begins at 6:50 a.m. allowing the parents/guardians of children in elementary Early Morning Programs to drop their Morning Start students off first. The program will emphasize homework completion and preparation for the school day ahead. Since proper nutrition is essential for the start of a student’s school day, students who bring breakfast will also have an opportunity to eat with their Morning Start peers. In order to ensure each child’s safety and to allow for an orderly functioning of the program, children must be escorted and signed in by an adult. Exceptions cannot be made.
