School News 7/21/17

Hi Parents,

This week we had fun participating in many sports and other games.  We even made our own Olympic medals!  Next week we will combine magic and science (as some science seems like magic at this age!)  We will explore different scientific reactions that look magical, make some slime, taste slushees (made with just apple juice) and enjoy a magic show.  If you’d like your child to watch the magic show, please sign up near the sign in sheets or click HERE to sign your child up.  No need to do it in both places.  The magic show is Wednesday, 7/26 at 10:00am.  The cost is $9.

Please give 2 weeks’ notice when changing your summer schedule.  It is important for us to staff appropriately!  An email is the best way to communicate this.

When you sign your child in, please take care to write the time and initials on the line corresponding to your child’s name.  Make sure you’re not accidentally signing on another child’s line.

Starting next week, a late fee of $15 will be automatically applied to your account if your weekly tuition has not been paid by Wednesday.  Please do not worry about other small fees such as hot lunch, extra hours of care or field trips as those are usually billed a week late.  Tuition, however, must be kept up to date. Thank you for your understanding.

If you are interested in setting up direct debit, please click HERE for instructions on how to set that up through the Parent Portal.  If you don’t have a Parent Portal through Sandbox, email the office and we will send you an invitation to set up your account.  The school will automatically debit your account each Monday UNLESS you let the office know that you would like to pay the school yourself through this service.

Another note about Sandbox and the Parent Portal…only 1 parent can access the billing information.  If you are not able to see the billing information when you log in, then the payor is set to the wrong parent.  Send a quick email and we can change the payor to the appropriate person.  We suggest that if both parents want to access billing that you both use the same email and password.

Please turn in fall forms asap.  If you’re registered for summer, that doesn’t mean your registration is ongoing.  You must turn in a fall form and an $80 registration fee as well to hold your spot.  If you haven’t turned one in, you can get one from the office or click HERE.  The tuition rates are HERE.

Mosquito Joe’s will be out Saturday to do a treatment.  They always spray on a Saturday when children are not present.  They only spray the vegetation surrounding the school and not the playground itself.
