September Parent Letter



WACS EduCare                      

September 2018


Dear Parents,

     Hello!  Now that the school year is well underway, I have a few bits of information to share with you. Please read through all part of this letter carefully.  As the Director of EduCare, I will be sending out a letter each month to keep you informed of no school days, policy changes and any other pertinent information.


     First, I would like to introduce you to the EduCare staff for the 2018-2019 year.   Our enrollment has hit an all-time high, so we have brought in several new people to support our already dynamic EduCare staff.

 There are a few “housekeeping” items I would like to bring to your attention at this time:


            *          If your child eats lunch while in EduCare, please be sure to sign the          

                        sheet provided indicating whether he/she is having hot or cold lunch.

                        This also includes those parents that drop off a child at 5 Day, 5 Day Flex or

Multi-Age Flex Preschool in the morning.                                         


*          Effective Monday, October 1, 2018, EduCare will no longer be serving breakfast in the morning.  Due to several legislative changes approved during the Summer session, the breakfast we currently serve/prepare does not comply with the new guidelines. EduCare has served breakfast as a courtesy to families for over 25 years!!   Please note that all the children (EduCare, Preschool and Kindergarten) will still have a snack each morning between 8:30-9:30, with white milk served as the beverage.   


            *          The hours your child attends EduCare are figured daily.  We figure all   time to the nearest quarter hour, with                        a minimum charge of one hour per day

            *          If your child needs prescription or non-prescription medication while attending EduCare, you must have                               a medical form signed by your Doctor /P.A./C.N.P.   The medication must be in its original container with                              the name of your child printed on it.  This also includes eye drops.

     Thank you for your attention to these matters.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.  I’m looking forward to an exciting year.  With your help and cooperation, I know we will have a great year together!  May God Bless your family as we move into the colorful season of Fall.
