November Parent Letter

WACS EduCare                                    November 2017


Dear Parents,

            Hello!  I hope all of you have been enjoying our beautiful fall weather.  Hopefully there are still a couple warm and sunny days, before it gets cold and snowy.   I will just take a couple minutes of your time to bring you up to date on what is happening in EduCare.   

     On November 22nd there is no school for the Winona Area Catholic Schools, but EduCare will be open for child care.  If you plan to have your child in EduCare on November 22nd, you will need to do the following:

            1.)  Sign your child up on the sign-up sheet (full-time children too)

            2.)  Pack a cold lunch for your child.

If you do not need your child in EduCare this day, you will not be charged (except for full-time accounts).  You only pay if you sign up and reserve hours for EduCare.

EDUCARE WILL BE CLOSED:  November 23 & 24 (Thanksgiving Holiday)

PLAN AHEAD- EDUCARE WILL BE CLOSED:  December 25 & 26 (Christmas Holiday)

                                                                        January 1 & 2 (New Year’s Holiday)     

     I am asking for your help with keeping your child home when they are sick or show signs of flu-like illness.  The signs of seasonal flu include:  fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headaches, chills and fatigue.  Please be sure to keep your child home for at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever, without the use of fever-reducing medicines.  Your cooperation can help to reduce the spread of the seasonal flu.

     The weather is getting a little colder, so please be sure you are dressing your child appropriately.  We try to go outside to play or walk everyday (until it gets too cold).  Also, please be sure to LABEL your child’s boots, mittens, hat, coat, and snow pants with their name.  Many children have the same coats, boots and snow pants, and we would like to eliminate any confusion.  

     Attached to this letter is our Snow Day Policy.  Please read it carefully and find a convenient place to post it at home.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  

     Thank you for your time and attention to all of these items.  I really appreciate all of your help and cooperation!!    Happy Thanksgiving!
