ECC Families,

Well it has been quite a week. We could title this week "When Mother Nature Wins!" Looking for some warm up and melting going on this weekend but I understand we may have some more stuff coming our way next week. I appreciate everyone being understanding making the decision to close is never an easy one for me! Next week we will celebrate Valentine's Day and our parties will be on Wednesday and Thursday. Lots going on in the next few weeks so please make sure to read through the update. Registration for current families will end on Friday, February 22nd. Please make sure to sign up for a conference time with your child's teacher if you have not done so yet. If you have any questions or concerns regarding registration or anything else I will be available on conference day as well. Have a great weekend!

Current Family Registration for 2019-2020
We are kicking off our current family registration this week. All families must register their current student and let us know about any new students in their family who will be starting for the 2019-2020 school year. Through this process we are able to make sure all of our current families retain their spot for their student(s) and have the opportunity to reserve a spot for a new student. It is important we have this information before we begin to offer enrollment to families who are currently on our waiting list and before our open house on March 7. Unfortunately we will not be able to guarantee enrollment for your child after the current family registration period ends on February 22. If you have questions about the registration form you may contact me directly at ckoob@olpls.org. The link to the web page on our website can be found below. You can also find this page by going to the website and choosing Current Families from the Home drop down menu then 2019-2020 Student Registration. Please fill out information for every student you would like to enroll for the 2019-2020 school year. If you have more than 2 current students coming back for 2019-2020 then you will need to fill out the form twice.
Valentine Parties are this Week!
Valentine parties are here! Room parents should contact the classroom teacher to let them know their plans. The dates for our parties are Wednesday, February 13 for Ms. Susie/Carlene, Ms. Margaret, and Ms. Kim M/W/F classes. All other classes will be held on Thursday, February 14.

Closed for Conferences Monday, February 18
Our center will be closed on President's Day, Monday, February 18 for Parent/Teacher Conferences. On this day our center will be closed for normal business but we will be open from 8am-5pm to allow families who sign up for conferences to meet with their child's teacher. Click the link below for the sign up genius for conference times. Please make sure you are signing up under the correct teacher's tab. To get to other age groups there is a button in the right hand corner with a drop down which allows you to choose another age group. If you have any issue feel free to email your child's teacher.
OLP School Kindergarten Information Night 2/19
OLP School will be hosting Kindergarten Information Night on Tuesday, February 19. You may attend either 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM or 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM. Both sessions will begin in the Mulligan Room. If you would like to learn more about how to continue on with your child here at Presentation make sure to mark this date on your calendar.

Ms. Briggs, OLP School Principal, will be available during drop off Monday, February 11 7:00 AM - 8:45 AM to answer general questions.

Spring Pictures with Lil' Angels
Our spring pictures will be with Lil' Angels again this year. We are scheduled for the week of March 4th and we will only be doing pictures Monday-Thursday this time. Lil' Angels is the company which does the dress up pictures. We should have a schedule for when each class will attend ready next week. They will do sibling pictures if you request it ahead of time.
Inclement Weather Information
As we can see with winter we will be dealing with inclement weather from time to time. Our center does not automatically close when OLP school closes or LS school district. We make the determination on our own. We take into account several different factors when we decide to close or close early. It is never an easy decision to make so we appreciate your understanding. Below you will find our closing procedures. You should always receive a remind and be able to find updated information on our website as well.
