Thank you for your patience in awaiting these plans for re-opening the preschool. There have been fluid changes and regulations, but I think we have covered the basics and hit the high points for best practices and necessary protocol. St. James' Preschool Board unanimously approved the calendar and plan (below). We considered all of your feedback and the constraints of our physical and global environment when we set out to formulate a plan that makes the most sense for our school--with the PRIMARY goal being the safety and health of our staff and students.
The most notable changes in the plan are as follows:
School will begin on August 31 to allow staff time for required COVID training and learning our new procedures.
All of our students will be on a half-day schedule, with official school hours from 8 am to 12:45 pm. Students may arrive at 7:40 am, and pickup will be from 12:45-1 pm. All students and staff will pre-screen at home, but temperature checks will be conducted prior to entry into the building. Please be patient as we streamline this process.
Lunch will be served to ALL students Monday through Thursday, and will be pre-packaged on disposable plates with disposable utensils. Mrs. Amy has already had lots of experience with this from serving meals at cheer camp, so it should go smoothly! Friday remains a "sack lunch from home" day. Rest and nap time will be eliminated from our schedule and can be assigned as "homework" ;-)!!
Monthly tuition costs will be as follows, and include one snack and one lunch per day (except Friday-sack lunch day):
M-F Students $265/month
MWF Students $235/month
T/Th Students $220/month
A supply fee of $100 will apply to all students who have not yet paid pre-registration.
Please review / download the documents below and let me know if you have any concerns or questions. We will do our best to help anyone who has concerns with the new schedule due to work, etc. find some resources. Please understand that we have to factor many things into our decisions during this unprecedented time.
Finally, many of you have requested the "form" that the doctor has to sign stating your child is well enough to attend child care. That is available below, or some practices have their own form. Either on is OK. Make sure you have an immunization record for your child prior to the first day of school. Enrollment packets will be mailed early next week, so please watch for those. Thank you so much! I appreciate you all!
