In just a few short weeks, our summer program will begin on July 6st We have had a very success school year thanks to our parents for their cooperation, and our staff for providing the best experience for your child while maintaining strict health and safety guidelines.
Arrival and Departure: Upon arrival to the school, you will park in the parking lot. Please do not park in the crosswalk in front of the school. If you must park closer to the school, you may park in the handicap spots, or along the “no parking” area.
Please walk your child to the door. At that time, you will indicate if your child is “all good” (e.g., no fever or covid symptoms) or “not good.” You should be taking your child’s temperature and monitoring for symptoms prior to arriving at the school. Your child will also be dismissed at the door.
Groups, Supplies, and Masks: Children will be in one group (limit 20) and not mingle with other groups. Lunches will be eaten together with the Teacher in the classroom. Supplies will not be shared. Therefore, we ask that you either supply the needed items, or purchase them from us. Please see the SUPPLY LIST. Masks are encouraged, but not required. We ask that your child wear a mask in to school and then again upon dismissal. We do not plan on asking them to wear masks inside the building while in their groups, or outdoors, unless you want them to be worn (Please let us know your choice).
Forms: All forms and permissions must be completed, signed, and returned before the start of the program.
- Registration Form
- Summer Covid Procedures
- Summer Permission slip
- Universal Health Care Record and Immunization Record (if record on file is > 1 year)
If you are new to the school, the above, plus the following, must be completed and returned:
Lunches and Snacks: Each day your child should bring a lunch labeled with his/her name on it. A morning and afternoon snack will be provided. If you are arriving prior to 8:15 am, breakfast will be provided. Tuesday and Fridays are Pizza Days. You can purchase one slice for $3.00 or two slices for $5.00. We bring the pizza in hot from the local pizzeria. It is optional but very popular with students and parents alike!
Note: No lunches will be heated or chilled. Please provide an ice pack for cold items, and a thermos if you wish for your child to have a hot meal.
Potty Training: If your child is beginning to potty train and is prone to accidents, please use pull ups and bring a pack of wipes for their use.
What to Bring: On your child’s first day of school, please send a labeled plastic bag containing a change of clothes, and diapers/pull ups, if needed. If your child will be staying after 1 pm, please send in a small pillow and blanket for our daily” quiet time” in a plastic bag labeled with their name.
For your child’s safety, children should wear rubber soled, sturdy shoes to school such as sneakers. Flip flops, backless sandals, dress up shoes, crocs, and similar style shoes, make it difficult for the children when they are playing outdoors or doing large muscle activities in the classroom. Children who do not have the proper foot attire will not be allowed on the climbing equipment or participate in large muscle activities.
Children should also wear clothing that they can actively play in without worrying if they will be in trouble for getting dirty. We do many hands-on activities with the children and do take precautions, but your help would be appreciated.
Water Days: Water Play Days will be announced by the Teacher via Remind. You should receive the notification to sign up for Remind from your child’s Teacher on the first day. On those days, please send your child in with their bathing suit under their clothes, along with a cover up. We will not be changing children into dry clothes. We anticipate that the days will be very hot, and they will dry naturally while having lunch in a shady outdoor spot.
Please apply sunscreen to them prior to coming to school. Have them wear Sunscreen tops and/or hats if they are very sun sensitive.
We look forward to seeing your child this summer. We are planning lots of fun activities, while building lasting friendships with others.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
