Dear Parents,

The Winter Afterschool Session will come to a close this Friday, March 18th. Warmer weather is on the horizon and the snow is melting as we close out the Winter session. As we look forward to the Spring session some modifications will be made to the afterschool program.  

As you know we began the Winter session without cohorts, then midstream we implemented two groups of cohorts each day; K, 1st & 2nd and 3rd, 4th & 5th. They were separated and used different parts of the building, at different times.

With the warmer days ahead, the playground and blacktop areas will be used (weather permitting) in addition to the auditorium and gym areas. Since we will be using additional outdoor space during the afterschool program, cohorts will no longer be implemented. 

Mask wearing is optional and we’ll continue to encourage social distancing for the Spring Session through the practices put in place during the Winter program;
  • All auditorium games will stay as single or two player game, with the exception of the quad air hockey because the table is large enough to allow for social distancing. 
  • Next-up players stickers will remain on the floor to designate their waiting spot.
  • Stickers remain on the gym stairs to designate where to sit.
  • Benches remain in the gym to create more seating when needed during games.
  • Single chairs remain in the lounge while watching cartoons.
  • Children will continue to be spread out during Homework Club with additional tables and chairs set up. 

On rainy days when we are limited to only staying indoors for the afternoon, children will be separated into groups based on the number of participants on that given day. This is to keep everyone spread out through the facility so that everybody is not gathered in one area all at the same time. 

I look forward to the Spring Session beginning next Monday, March 21st. If you have not yet registered for the Spring Session or classes please REGISTER HERE. Please note that the Spring Afterschool Session concludes on Thursday, May 26th, 2022.  

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Should you have any questions please contact me directly.

Warm regards,

Frank
