MAY 20th - LAST DAY OF SCHOOL
Kindergarteners have their graduation at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, May 20th. If you have a kindergartener and would like them to attend JCPRD upon finishing graduation, that is an option! Mrs. Woolery has informed me that they have the option of going home with their parents, or staying in their classroom after the ceremony as well. If you would like your child to attend JCPRD after graduation, it will be no additional charge, and would be treated as an all-day programming day. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU WILL BE HAVING YOUR CHILD ATTEND JCPRD THIS DAY so I can plan accordingly :)
For all other students, JCPRD will be held as usual on this day!

Sign in/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.
***Be sure to have your ID on you for verification when signing out***
JCPRD's CODE of CONDUCT
Please make sure that you read over the parent handbook for our mission statement, goals, program description, hours, costs, holidays, payment schedule, and policy statements.
JCPRD has pledged to the COMMIT TO HEALTH campaign!!!
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!
Park and recreation agencies are the health and wellness leaders in their communities. Having a safe place to go after school, being active and eating healthy are vital services park and recreation agencies provide. That's why NRPA created Commit to Health—a campaign that supports the implementation and evaluation of Healthy Eating, Physical Activity (HEPA) standards in park and recreation sites across the country.
Please help us encourage your children to live healthy lifestyles by eating healthy, and getting lots of physical activity!
