  • What is the daily attendance procedure?

    Attendance is checked every morning. Please call the SummerEdge office at 240.395.0679 with any changes in your child’s schedule (absences, late arrivals, early dismissals, etc.). If your child is going home with a friend, or being picked up by someone other than a family member, please inform the office with a note stating the name of the friend or person with whom your child will be going home.

We ask that you please type your camper's first and last name (preferably in large font) on a piece of paper and place it on your dashboard at dismissal. Please form a line around the circle and wait in your car until your child is dismissed to ensure a smooth and timely carpooling experience for all. Our staff will greet and escort children to and from their cars each day. There is parking available on campus if you should need to come into the building.
