The ECFE classes are FREE! Classes will be on Monday nights from 6:00 -7:30 PM. ECFE begins September 28, 2020 and continue through May.

Dear Families,

Another school year is HERE-FINALLY! It is with great enthusiasm that I am planning the 2020-21 school year. Again this year we will be holding
our ECFE/School Readiness classes in our preschool classroom in the Kindergarten Wing of the Elementary School. Park in the main parking lot
and the front doors will be open during class hours. If you park in the playground parking lot, you can enter through the preschool door across
from the playground during the Fall and Spring only. This year with following of Covid guidelines, we will only be able to have a
maximum of 12 kids in the classroom, but if we can be outside (weather permitting) the number can be increased. My hope is to be able to utilize
both the classroom and outdoor area of the playground by preschool North Door.

You WILL need to register for EACH CLASS by TEXTING TONYA HOW MANY FAMILY MEMBERS WILL ATTEND THAT MONDAY NIGHT SESSION! I WILL TAKE TEXT MESSAGES FOR EACH MONDAY NIGHT CLASS ON THE SUNDAY BEFORE THE CLASS STARTING AT 9AM. NO SIBLINGS THIS YEAR.  ADULTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO WEAR FACE COVERINGS, KIDS DO NOT.  
 I am hoping everyone will be able to join that wants to most Monday nights, but if not I will make sure the following class you are the first on the list to attend!
Sincerely,
Tonya Matson
