JCPRD @ Riverview

May 2016

It's Almost Summer!

May 23rd - 27th

We can't believe it is already May and there are only a handful of school days left! As you know, Desoto moved it's last day of school back to Friday, May 20th. However, JCPRD will be open the following week, May 23rd - 27th from 7:00 to 6:00 each day for any current school year participants. Your fees on May 20th will only be a half payment to cover that week of the 23rd. If your child will not be coming that week, you need to give the registration office two weeks notice so that you will not be charged on the 20th.

Come Play with Us!

Running Down the Hill

It is a time honored tradition at Riverview for students to run down the hill on the last day of school. We don't want our JCPRD friends to miss out on this. However, it does pose a few security issues for us. Therefore, here is what the office staff and I have developed over the years to make sure everyone ends up where they should.


If your child is running down the hill and then going home, call the office and list them as walkers.


If your child is running down the hill and then coming to JCPRD, let both the office and Jill know at least 24 hours in advance. We will give their teacher a wristband for them to wear as a reminder to them (and any school staff at the bottom of the hill) that they are to come meet out staff at a designated location that we will determine in the days prior. If your child hasn't met us at that spot by 4:00, we will be calling you to report them missing.


If you do not want your child to run the hill, keep them listed as JCPRD. Without the wristband, they will not be permitted to leave the building. They will report directly to the cafeteria as usual.

Bring Your ID

Please have your ID ready to show when picking up your child(ren). We know we will have returning students and parents, but when we have subs and new staff, they will ask for your ID. This is for your child's protection, thank you for your support on this.

Signing In and Out

As always, it is very important to sign your child in each morning and out each afternoon. It is not OK for kids to sign themselves in or out. Your initials need to be added next to the time that you wrote. If you forget to sign your child out at the end of the day, we will be calling you to verify that you have them, even if we saw you pick them up. This is a new policy this year put in place for an added level of security in all of our programs.


Verifying Pick Ups Change-If we do not get an notification via email or phone call, stating that someone other than a parent is picking up your child, we will call to verify this before they will be allowed to take your child on this particular day. Please call the site number at 913.422.0999 or send Jill an email at jill.leech@jocogov.org if someone else is picking up your child(ren) so that our staff are informed. This will apply even if they are on your authorized pick up list. If someone else will be picking up your child on a regular and predictable basis (for example every Wednesday), please let us know. We can make an accommodation for that so that you don't need to contact us each time.
