Summer School 2020
We will be implementing a number of new measures for the safety of all during Summer School 2020. Each participating student will be assigned to a mixed-age group of children. This group will stay together with their teacher in a dedicated classroom throughout the 2-week session. Each summer session group will not exceed 10 individuals in total, including children and staff. We will stagger group arrival and departure times as well as playground times to avoid mixing of children from other groups.
Depending on each summer teacher’s schedule, some of our summer groups will offer extended care. Your child’s group assignment will be based on the best fit of student to teacher, taking into account your extended care needs. Upon acceptance of your registration, you will receive your child’s group assignment and further instructions regarding daily arrival screening and other new procedures. Please note that we will be restricting school access to students and staff only.
There may be times over the summer when we need to cancel services for infection control. For this reason, we will only collect summer fees on the first day of each biweekly summer session, one session at a time. No refunds are provided for student absences. If classes need to be cancelled once a session is in progress, your fees for that session will not be refunded. However, you will receive a credit based on the number of cancelled days. Your credit will be applied toward future school services for your family. If an upcoming summer session is delayed or cancelled before fees are collected, we will defer the payment until the first day of service and adjust the fees for that session to reflect the number of days of service offered.
Our 2020 Summer School fees remain unchanged from those of last year when compared to 2019 on a weekly basis. Because we are asking that children register for a 2-week summer session, the 2020 fees are quoted biweekly. There are no sibling discounts or fee caps during Summer School. Returned payments are subject to a $35 penalty fee. No refunds are provided for student absences during a registered summer session. We require 2 weeks written notice or fees in lieu for Summer School withdrawals or schedule changes. We levy a late fee of $10 for every 10-minute interval in care beyond the student’s scheduled departure time.
Here’s to a safe and engaging summer designed to keep your child’s mind alert, body active, and eyes sparkling with adventure! Don’t delay – spaces are very limited!
