First Day of the Session
All students should arrive at 8:45 AM on the first day and go directly to the opening program. MITY staff will show you where to go. Parents are invited to attend, but are not required to do so. There will be a short program that includes introductions and logistical information. Students will then meet their morning course instructor, who will accompany them to their classroom. Note: Students should report directly to their classrooms at 9:00 AM for all subsequent days of the program.
What to Bring
Students should bring a snack, lunch, and water bottle labeled with their name. MITY classrooms are NUT FREE. Please avoid any snacks that contain any form of peanuts or tree nuts. Students do not need to bring supplies to class; all materials will be provided.
Drop-off & Pick-up
Students should be dropped off between 8:45 – 9:00 AM unless they are pre-registered for Before Care. There is a parking lot on the west side of the building at the corner of Randolph Avenue and Wheeler Street. There will be signs to direct families into the building through the courtyard. Students may also be dropped off at the east entrance which is located off the intersection of Randolph Avenue and Davern Street. All students should be picked up at 4:00 PM except those pre-registered for After Care. Drop-in care is not available before or after classes.
Families who indicated an interest in carpooling on the application will receive a contact list of students in June. Families can then contact one another to arrange carpools.
Code of Conduct
All admitted students must read and agree to abide by the MITY Code of Conduct [PDF] during their time in the program. You will be asked to sign an acknowledgement of this code on the health form.
All admitted students must submit a completed health form one week prior to the start of the session or they will not be allowed to attend class. This form must be updated annually. Your typed name is your signature.
