Weekly news & updates
September 28
We're so excited to see you!
In this weekly newsletter, we first list relevant information for ALL campuses.
Then we break down campus-specific announcements by campus
Announcements for Everyone:
Please send a water bottle (or 2) with your child to campus!
All drinking fountains are turned off at every campus. Please send water with your child every week!
Sign up for Remind Notifications
Every campus requires a Health Assessment Form to be filled out every week before your family comes to campus!

The form and link will be new every week (and is different for each campus). It is sent out approximately 5 pm the night before classes. It will stay open until 7 am the morning of your classes. Only one is needed per family.

Listed under each campus are the directions on how to sign up for the Remind App which will be texting these forms to you.
Have you filled out these required forms?
Dress Code Reminders
Please make sure that your clothing (including prints on facemasks) are appropriate for ALL ages! Nothing scary!

We do not dress up for Halloween on campus - nor should political t-shirts, hats, etc. be worn to campus.

Thank you for joining us in the effort of making sure that EVERYONE feels comfortable on campus!

Clarkston Campus (Clarkston Community Church)
Session 3 - September 28
Adults must wear face masks or shields
We were recently informed by Clarkston Community Church that all adults must wear masks or face shields in the common areas of the building only. This means that if you are coming in with your child(ren) you must wear a mask or shield. Children are not required to wear masks at any time. Teachers and staff do not have to wear a mask or shield in the classrooms. Campus Supervisors will be wearing a mask or shield while others are present at the desk. Thank you for your understanding of this unforeseen change.
Please send a water bottle with your student! Drinking fountains are unavailable.
Snacks are back!
Snacks will be available to purchase at lunch time. Each snack is approximately $1 or less.
