JCPRD @ Grand Star

Out of School Time Newsletter - December 2015

With the temps getting colder, please help your child make sure he/she has a coat, hat, gloves for cool weather and appropriate shoes for going outside or to the gym. Tennis shoes really allow your child to participate in every activity we plan!

Don't forget to follow @JCPRDGardnerOST on Twitter for up-to-date emergency closing procedures as well as pictures of your kids in action in our Out of School TIme program!

January All Day Program Days

We will offer all day care days on Monday, Jan. 4th and Tuesday, Jan. 5th at Grand Star. Your child will need to have a sack lunch if they will be attending. These days are not an extra charge unless you are morning only or your part time schedule doesn't fall on one of these days.

Getting Healthy

We know that kids who eat healthier and move more perform better in school. It's not just because teachers and administrators tell us so. Research shows that healthy kids get better grades, attend school more often and behave better in class.

Experts recommend that kids get 60 minutes of physical activity every day. These minutes can come before, during, or after school as long as kids are staying active and having fun!

/Out Policy

All children must be signed in and out, daily, with parent initials and time. This is a Kansas State Health Department regulation. Staff will follow up, if parents do not sign their children out, with a phone call to verify pick-up. Children are not allowed to sign themselves in/out without a parent.
Gardner Out of School Time Parent Handbook
