As we enter the final month of our summer program, it is hard to believe there are only five weeks left until a new school year begins. Our summer curriculum theme for August will be “Folktales and Fables” Each week will have its own theme such as Aesop’s Fables, International Folktales, and Paul Bunyan. This should be fun reliving some of these folktales.
During the month of August, JCDS will be sending out our new Tuition Contract for the school year 2021-22, along with an Emergency Contact/Parental Consent Form. Both forms need to be updated for this coming school year. Staffing issues due to the lack of qualified candidates applying for positions has still hampered our ability to reopen to 7:00am to 6:00pm. As a result, we will continue to have parents choose a block of time from 7:30am-4:30pm, 8:00am-5:00pm, or 8:30-5:30pm. If you need extra time, we are charging an additional fee of $15.00/hour for extra time. This extra time however will not be for dropping off before 7:30am or picking up after 5:30pm.
JCDS will be closing at 5:30pm for our monthly staff meeting on Monday, August 16th.
Our summer program will be ending on Friday, September 3rd. The new school year will begin Tuesday, September 7th. For those families entering different schools in September, please let Larry Brown know your child’s last day of attendance. Key tags will also need to be returned.
With the increased importance of social media, we would like to ask for your help in getting the word to fellow parents what a positive impact JCDS has made in the education and care of your child.
