Grandparents' Day - Reimagined

We love Grandparents' Day at ZLS, and we are sad that we will not be able to celebrate it on our campus, in-person with these special people this year.

To celebrate Grandparents' Day (which was scheduled for March 12th), our students and staff will be putting together some activities, photos, videos, and gifts to share with these people that are such an important part of our lives.

We would like to collect home addresses and email addresses for our families' grandparents or special people.

Please use the form attached to your family Blackbaud account to share this information with us.

Click on the button to the right to see the letter that was emailed to grandparents (if addresses were supplied).
Families who use it but are not registered by Tuesday March 9th for Early Dismissal Care from 1:15-3:15 will be charged $5.00 per student. 

PLEASE SIGN UP BY Tuesday March 9, 2021 to avoid $5.00 charge.
Early Dismissal
Zion's Extended School Programs exists to serve Zion School families Pre- K to 8th grade. To that end, the Extended School staff, coordinated by Ms. Dawn Holcomb, provides additional care services from 1:15-3:15 on Early Dismissal Days.

In order to provide quality care that meets our current standards and guidelines, we must know how many students will be in attendance on these days.

Please use the form to register your children for Early Dismissal Care by Tuesday, March 9th.
