A Note From Our Principal,
Our teachers and camp counselors have been busy planning special activities to make this summer fun and memorable for our students. Although camp will look different this year, it will continue to feature activities that support learning outcomes aligning with your child’s developmental level. Please keep an eye out for special communications about activities and events, and about how you can support your child’s learning at home. As always, we are here with any questions or concerns you may have. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
Health and Safety Measures
The health and safety of our children and families is always our highest priority. To mitigate the risks of COVID-19 while children are in our care, we have adopted additional health and safety measures based on CDC guidelines, state and local regulations, and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Visit our school website to learn more information.
Links 2 Home App Usage
We know that summer is a busy time for our families, and want to communicate school happenings as clearly as possible to ensure that no one is left out. As a reminder, daily reports are sent via email each day, but our Links 2 Home app keeps all school communications in one place and is always accessible. The app also allows to you communicate absences to your child’s teacher; leave drop-off notes, and read teacher and administrative notes in detail.
If you’re not a current app user, we encourage you to visit the Apple App Store or Google Play Store to download the app today. You will need to login with the email address you use for Alma. Please let us know if you have issues logging into Links 2 Home!
Summer Cubby Clean-ups
Our students love spending time outdoors and we want to make sure we take ample advantage of the summer weather before it gets too hot. If your child is in the Toddler classroom and up, please make sure they have the following items in their cubby at all times:
- Labeled bottle of sunscreen and bug spray. If you send the aerosol kind, please send an additional cream version for your child’s face.
- Summer appropriate change of clothes
We have several water play days planned for our students this summer and can’t wait for your child to participate! On splash days we provide sprinklers, water toys, and occasionally rent blow-up water slides from our trusted vendors. Children should come to school in their swimsuit (with swim diaper where applicable) and with a towel and a change of dry clothes. On splash day, please apply sunscreen to your child before you drop them off. Our currently scheduled splash days are:
- June 12th
- June 26th
