We hope you are all safe and well and in good spirits! What a crazy last two months it has been! We published our summer camp information a few days before closing, never imagining how much would change since then. We have been discussing what summer is going to look like for us at Coastal Day School, and while it is going to be very different from the norm, it is still going to be FUN!! We are making a lot of temporary changes to ensure our program is flexible and available to Leland parents, while working hard to keep our campers and staff safe! Here are some ways we plan to make that happen:
For starters, we will be reducing the number of campers we enroll in the first few weeks, and potentially throughout the summer. Without knowing what size groups will be allowed on field trips, and with added safety measures, it will be easier if our group size is smaller. As the summer goes on we may be able to increase our group sizes. We want to make sure we are complying with all recommendations by government officials and that we are doing everything we can to keep our kiddos and staff safe!
We also have updated our tuition contract and you are now able to register for whichever days you'd like. We understand that some parents will continue working from home, or have reduced schedules, so we want to be flexible to make sure we can serve families in the capacity that they need. We have a new copy of our contract for you --here--!
At this time, we do not know what field trips on our schedule will actually happen. We plan to post an update each Wednesday for the following week to let you know our schedule and what campers will need each day. Check back here or on our Facebook page to find out what we will be doing. Because of allowing campers to sign up daily without a minimum number of days each week, there will be a field trip fee for our large trips for those campers that are not signed up for at least 3 days that given week. We will do our best to offer fun trips every day!!!
As campers enter our building each morning, we will be taking their temperature with an infrared thermometer and they will need to wash their hands prior to going into a classroom. We are asking parents to either drop children off at the front door or lobby to keep even more germs from entering our classrooms. Any camper showing any signs of illness will need to be picked up immediately. Campers will be required to wash their hand frequently throughout the day. Our staff will be sanitizing and cleaning tables, toys, and equipment throughout the day. We will take disinfectant with us on field trips and we will also have a hand washing station in the back of our vans!
We are SO excited to see all our little friends and share a summer full of fun!!!
