January Parent Letter

WACS EduCare

January 2018



Dear Parents,


     Happy New Year!  I hope all of you enjoyed time with family and friends during the holidays.   Hopefully we get some new snow soon, so the children can enjoy time outside sledding and building snowmen.  As we move into the month of January, there are a few important pieces of information I need to share with you.


**         EduCare will be closed on the following days.  Please plan ahead.

February 19 (President’s Day)

March 9 (Spring Break)

March 30 (Easter Break)

April 2 (Easter Break)

May 28 (Memorial Day)

May 29 (Summer EduCare preparations)

May 30 (Teacher In-Service Training)


**         Classroom Supplies:  After Christmas, we ask that each child bring a box/bag of snacks and

a roll of paper towels (Toddler Room—2 rolls paper towels) for their classroom.  All children are served snack while in EduCare, even our Kindergarten friends.   Be sure to check your name off on the sheet provided, when your child brings his/her box of snacks and roll(s) of paper towels.  Additional snack ideas (class of 18): cheese sticks/block, yogurt, raisins, apples, oranges, bananas, or baby carrots with light ranch dressing.


**         Outdoor Play:  When the temperature is mild, we love to take the children outside to play. 

The open space and fresh air allows the children to “wear off” some of their energy!  Please

continue to send the appropriate outdoor clothes for your child (coat, mittens, hat, boots, and snow pants).   Please remember to label your child’s outdoor clothing with their name.


**         Snow Days:  Just a quick reminder of our snow day policy.  If you need EduCare on a snow

day, please call(452-2890, Press #2 when prompted) by 8:00 a.m.  Also, you will need to pack a cold lunch for your child.  All information about EduCare will be sent via text alert and group email, and posted on the WACS website (   If you have any questions on a snow day, please call 429-7407. 

EduCare will close, if it is determined that it is not safe for our staff to travel.


**         Late Start/Early Release:  If school starts late or releases early due to inclement weather,

EduCare will remain open its regular hours (6:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.).



     I hope all of you have a wonderful start to the New Year-2018 .
