REPEATED UPDATES AND REMINDERS SECTION

PRESCHOOL UPDATE

Through the end of the summer, we have been working to open our own GSRP Preschool and Latchkey programs. The process has been a little slower than we had hoped, but we are making strides forward. We have interviewed for staffing all positions and developed handbooks, policies, and procedures. Right now, we plan to open a GSRP preschool Monday-Thursday and Latch Key (after-school care) Monday-Friday (after-school care). With some of the delays, our targeted start date has moved back to the second week of October at the earliest. Families that have registered for GSRP should be hearing from either myself or JCISD staff next week. As we develop the program and learn more, we hope to add tuition preschool and summer programming to serve more of our community. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THE GSRP PROGRAM, SEE THE FLYER ABOVE AND BEGIN THE ENROLLMENT PROCESS!!!
