Dear Parent(s),


We hope this finds your family safe and well!

Governor Murphy has announced that schools will not be reopening this school year. With that decision being made, we are now taking the following actions:

   -     All unused flex tickets will be credited back to your Just Kids ledger.    This is in addition to the unused days in March which we already credited all active non-flex ticket Just Kids accounts.  

-       We are reviewing each parent Just Kids ledger and mailing out hard copies of your account statement  within the next two weeks. You will then have a copy of your account statement and know any credits you have in your Just Kids account.

As you know, Just Kids is part of a non-profit Archway Programs and depends upon your parent paid tuition to fund all the costs of operating. Just Kids continues to have expenses even while we are not serving children directly.  We are asking, if you are financially able, to keep the credit in your Just Kids account and use it towards camp or next year’s registration/ tuition for September. Having these funds will help us to be ready to start back up as soon as we are allowed to. We understand that you may have your own financial hardship at this time or that you know you will not be returning to Just Kids next year. If this is the case, please let us know once you receive your statement and we will refund you back the credit. 

In addition, Just Kids staff will be going into the schools to retrieve supplies including student medication that was left. We will contact you directly, if we have medication for your child that has not expired. We want to ensure we get this back to you as safely as possible. 

We are waiting to hear news from the Governor as to whether we will be able to operate summer camp . At this moment, we are planning for operating and putting into place safety measures including screening, group size, social distancing, and other mechanisms based upon CDC and the NJ Childcare Health Consultant guidelines. 

Re-registration information and deadlines for the 2020-2021 school year will be coming out by the end of May. Please look for continued emails from us with this information.   

Our Just Kids family wishes your family continued health and safety. We know that we will see each other soon. In the meantime, we hope you are intentional about making memories and playing together. In May we celebrate PLAY ALL MAY ! Remember that one of the main ways our children learn all types of skills is through play. One of the best ways to ensure our children continue to grow and learn during this “stay at home” period is through playing together! We hope our Tuesday, “Bringing Just Kids to You” email is helping you to do just that!

Please contact us through email at justkids@archwayprograms.org if you have any questions.
