ECC Families,

Good afternoon. Wow! It has been a crazy week. I know there is a lot of concern right now and many of you may be considering keeping your student at home. Please know as always we will be doing everything we can to keep our center clean and our students and staff healthy. We are stepping up our cleaning efforts and focusing even more on monitoring student hand washing and respiratory etiquette for coughing and sneezing. Our staff and teachers will be meeting Monday afternoon to discuss what we are doing currently, what our plans are for the future and the importance of our roles in limiting the spread of illness. On a lighter note our Easter egg hunts are coming up and we are still needing lots of candy. You can find information below about what kind of candy is approved and when we need to have it by in order to have enough time to fill eggs. You will also find below information about our spring field trip to the Kansas City Zoo, which at this time we still plan on attending. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and please make sure to contact the center if your child will not be in attendance for any reason.

God Bless,

Catherine M. Koob
Director 
Easter Egg Hunts 4/1 & 4/2
Below you will find the schedule and time for when your child's class will have their Easter egg hunt. You will also find information about what kind of candy we would like for you to bring in for the eggs. This year we are going to be using recycled eggs so we are asking parents to bring in one or two bags of candy to put into the eggs. Please bring in at least one bag of candy from the approved list by Monday, March 23. We will also be setting up a couple of days for volunteers to come in and help us fill the eggs! More information coming soon!


Come Help Us Fill Easter Eggs!
We could use some help filling the over 2000 eggs we will need for the Easter egg hunts. Come join us for a couple hours on either Tuesday, March 24 or Wednesday, March 25. Please see the signup link below for more information.
