JCPRD @ Grand Star

Out of School Time Newsletter - January 2016

Happy New Year!!!!

I hope everyone was able to enjoy the holiday season. Hopefully everyone traveled safely and was able to see family and friends. We've just had a small taste of winter weather and I am anxious to see if we will get any more! If it warms up at all, we will try to get outside in the afternoons. Please help your child make sure that he/she has a warm coat, gloves, hats, scarves, etc! It will take some bundling for sure!

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!

It's going to be hard, but we're going to jump back into the school routine! I'm sure all you parents are ready, I know I am!

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.
