October 2020   

 

Dear Parents,
Welcome to October!  Let’s hope we get cooler weather now. 
 
Back to school night was different; I hope you were able to watch the videos.  We are trying to post more information and pictures on Facebook to keep you informed as well. 
 
October is usually a busy month for us, but with the restrictions still in place we have to improvise.  Please be sure to read the newsletter, and watch for our Facebook posts so we are aware of all of the happenings.
 
Our annual Oma’s Pumpkin Patch field trip will not be able to happen this year.  Oma’s pumkin patch is open to the public by reservations, check their website for information  http://www.omasfamilyfarm.com
There is so much to see and do, you can make it a fun family outing.  Don’t worry; we are working on bringing the pumpkin patch here at the Children’s Center. 
 
Even though Halloween is on a Saturday this year, we will still have our Halloween parties. We will not be dressing in costumes, but we have some fun things planned.
 
When dropping off or picking up your child, please follow the speed limit.  We are a preschool and we have a retirement home behind us and there are residential homes across from us.  Thank you for your understanding. 
 
 

Blessings,

Shawn Santo, 
Director

Fall at LPCC

 
We will be having Halloween parties on Thursday Oct. 29th.  Since Halloween is on a Saturday this year we won’t be doing a parade, which means no dress up (costumes) this year.  Watch the parent sign in and out board for a party sign-up sheet and more information. 
 
During the week of October 19 we will talk about pumpkins and how they grow, we will even have a small “pumpkin patch” so everyone can pick a pumpkin.
 
During the month of October, both classes will be making a scarecrow.  On Nov. 2 we will post pictures on Facebook of each scarecrow to have you vote on different topics.  Winners will be announced Nov. 5.

IMPORTANT:

PARENTS, BY LAW YOU ARE REQUIRED TO SIGN YOUR CHILD(REN) IN AND OUT EVERYDAY THEY ARE IN SCHOOL.   PLEASE USE YOUR LEGAL SIGNATURE. REGARDLESS IF IT IS READABLE OR NOT, AS LONG AS IT IS YOU’RE USUAL WAY OF SIGNING YOUR NAME.  NO ONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 IS PERMITTED TO SIGN YOUR CHILD IN OR OUT.  THE SIGN IN/OUT SHEETS ARE LEGAL DOCUMENTS.  PLEASE DO NOT LET YOUR CHILD ‘SIGN’ ON THEM.

CONTRACT INFORMATION

Please note, in your signed contract, it states: no refunds for illness or holidays.  The preschool does not give credit for days missed due to illness, holidays, or other reasons

 If your child will not be in school for the day, please call the school.
 
Vacation requests must be in 2 weeks prior to start

ILLNESS POLICY:

 If your child has a fever, vomits or has diarrhea at school or home, they may not return to school for 24 hours after the symptoms are gone.It is very important to keep your child home if they are not feeling well.  If you have any doubts it is better to keep your child home one more day than to send then to school when they are not quite up to it.  If your child has conjunctivitis (pink eye) they may not return to school until they have received antibiotic treatment for 24 hours.  Remember good handwashing is very effective in keeping disease from spreading.  Our policy will cut down on the transition of disease to other children, and our staff.

EMERGENCY INFORMATION

If anything has changed with your emergency or contact information, please contact the Preschool Office so we can update and be sure we have your correct information.  When a little one is ill, time is of the essence in trying to reach a parent.  In addition if working, please leave-detailed instructions if needed to make it easier for us to contact you at work.  Cell phones are not always reliable.  We need a back up way to reach you.
