ECC Families,

Good evening we have had lots going on this past week and this week will still be pretty busy working out all of the kinks to our new entry area and trying to finish up our plans for fall session. Below you will find some information with highlights from our COVID plan for 2020-2021. We hope to have a separate email ready to go out to all families this week with information about fall plans and supply lists. Our class rosters will not be complete until the last week of summer session. Unfortunately many families are still making changes to their plans for the school year and we do not want to have to make several updates to the class lists once they are complete. Also this year when putting classes together we will have to take into account families drop off and pick up times as well so we can make sure to place the afternoon staff we have in the classrooms in which the students will be staying the latest. To make sure we can provide as much consistency as possible for our students in the fall and still be able to adhere to our ratios and requirements for not mixing groups we are going to need for every family to provide us with a schedule for their student. Excuse our mess, for the next couple of weeks our center will be having floors waxed and painting done in the classrooms and hallways. Our staff will do their best to keep this from interfering with the children's classroom time. Make sure to read below about our new entry way procedures. Also new paperwork for 2020-2021 for returning students will be sent home this week. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

God Bless,

Catherine M. Koob
Director
Countdown till End of Summer Session

New Entrance Procedures
We are excited to try out our new entrance this week. We do still have some programming work which needs to be completed before everything is fully functional. The new doors which have been added last week are not yet functional with our security program. This will be completed this week. Until these updates are made you will continue to use your fob to gain entrance through the first set of interior doors and the second set of doors will be unlocked. Once you enter through this set of doors your child's temperature will be checked and you can sign them in at the kiosk. Once the door is fully integrated with our system it will only open when an authorized person signs your child in or out. I am sure we will have some kinks to work out this week but we are excited to offer our families this new layer of added security. A huge thank you is going out to the following businesses who are owned by or employ Presentation families - Design Supply Doors, TPC Interiors, and North Kansas City Electric. Without their donation of time and materials this beautiful addition would not have been possible!
