December Parent Letter

EduCare December 2018 Parent Letter

Dear Parents,

    Hello!  The true signs of winter are finally starting to show their face.  I hope you and your family had time to enjoy the snow we received over the weekend.  The first big snowfall is always so much fun!!  I have just a few items to share with you about what’s happening in EduCare during December.  

     The first item I would like to address is Christmas vacation, December 24th-January 4th     

    EduCare will be CLOSEDDecember 24, 25, 31, and January 1.    

    EduCare will be OPEN for child care:  December 26, 27, 28, and January 2, 3, 4

                ****Please watch your email the week of December 10th for sign up instructions. ***

 If you do not need your child in EduCare during Christmas vacation, you will not be charged (except for full-time accounts).  You only pay if you sign up and reserve hours for EduCare.

School will resume on January 7, 2019!

     The next item I would like to bring to your attention is the EduCare Snow Day Policy.   I’ve included a copy of our Snow Day Policy with this parent letter.   Please read it carefully and find a convenient location to post it at home.  There are also copies posted on the EduCare bulletin board by the sign-in sheets, and on the WACS website ( under the “Child Care/Preschool” tab. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.      


     If your child needs any type of medication during the school day, we need an “Authorization to Administer” form signed by a physician (PA or nurse practitioner).  This also includes over-the-counter medications.  The physician’s office has these forms and can complete it for you. 

   Please be sure to sign up for the “Text Alert” option for EduCare.   When there is inclement weather, we will send a message regarding EduCare services for the day.     You can sign up by visiting the WACS website (, click on the “Parent” tab, and select “Text Alert Enrollment”.  

     I want to wish all of you a very blessed advent season, and a joyous Christmas and New Year holiday.  Thank you for a wonderful 2018.
