ECC Families,

Good afternoon. We are excited to welcome many more families back for our summer session and a few new families too! With the increase of students we will have many more people coming into our building so make sure to read through our drop off and pick up procedures below. This will be the last weekly update for those families who do not have a student attending for the summer session. If you are returning in the fall we will have updates and information going out periodically but you will not receive a weekly update. For those families whose last day forever was Friday we just want to say thank you! It has been an honor and a blessing to teach your children and watch them grow. Good luck and stay safe and healthy in the months and years to come. Please come back and visit us. This summer session is going to look a little different then in the past so please bear with us as we make changes and additions when new activities are permitted. We will eventually be enjoying water play and inviting some presenters in to do smaller group activities. Please remember our hours are still 7:30 AM - 5:00 PM for now. We are working on some solutions to return to our regular hours and will definitely be back to our 6:30 AM - 6:00 PM hours by August, hopefully sooner. If your student is going to arrive 9:00 AM or later we need for you to call the preschool so we can make sure to alert their teacher and add them to the lunch count. Below you will find the summer calendar and as we add activities it will be updated and re-posted. Finally if you are not returning in the fall please make sure to turn in your key fob unless you will be attending OLP School. Those of you only gone for the summer do not need to turn in your key fob. Have a great week and fun-filled summer!

God Bless,

Catherine M. Koob
Director
Recovery Phase II Updates
The guidance for Phase II was released by Jackson County on Thursday. We have implemented some changes in order to follow the guidelines for childcare centers. Please make sure to read the link below. We will continue to keep families updated as guidelines and requirements change through each phase.

Tuition Payments & Activity Fees
All tuition payments for the school year should be completed. If you still owe tuition for the 2019-2020 school year you will receive an email with your outstanding balance asking for you to contact Teresa Button our Assistant Director with payment arrangements. Summer session tuition will begin tomorrow for weekly and monthly plans. Any activity fees, change of schedule fees and holding fees will be included on your students tuition account this week.

Student Item Pickup
If you missed a the times last week to pick up your child's items please make time this week to come by and pick these items up. We do not have adequate space to store items for the summer. If you are wondering if your child still has items at school just give us a call or send us an email and we will check for you. Please call before coming to pick items up so we can make sure everything is together and up front for you to pick up.
Summer Class Lists
In the link below you will find the class lists for the summer session. Please understand the class lists are a reflection of staffing needs and adherence to the Jackson County Health Dept. COVID-19 guidelines. If you have questions or concerns please email or call me directly.





Pre-K Graduation Video
I know it was not what any of us wanted to have happen. It is hard to cancel a long time tradition! We hope this video will be a way for your family to commemorate your child's graduation and time at Presentation ECC. A big thank you to Amanda Esparza who took the video footage and put it all together and to the teachers who provided the pictures and their special words of wisdom and most of all to our families for sharing their precious children with us. We hope you enjoy Pre-K Graduation 2020! Click on the picture to the right and make sure to watch till the end:)
