Inclement Weather Policy Reminder


Winter is upon us. Just a few reminders- we follow the Kimberly School District for cancellations. In the event that school is canceled for the day, childcare will be too. Prepaid fees will be applied to future billing for such days.

Also, if any weather conditions cause a 2 hour delay childcare will open two hours later (8:30 a.m.).

*(Pre3/4K parents, note that there is no Pre3 or 4K classes if there is a 2 hour delay, however, as a Childcare participant you are welcome to send your child for Childcare at the cost of appropriate fees).

Last, if weather requires an early school closing, parents need to make arrangements to pick up their child(ren) within an hour of school closing. If we have not heard from you by the time school closes childcare staff will contact the parent or authorized pick up person to make arrangements.

Childcare Closing Early 12/21


The Holy Spirit Staff Christmas party is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, December 21st.

Childcare will be closing early on this day so that our Staff can participate in this holiday event. On this day we will be closing at 4:30. Please mark this on your calendar and schedule alternative care or early pick up on this day.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Outdoor Clothing


Snow is here and granted it is only a little bit and may not stick please begin sending your child’s snow pants, boots, hats, mittens and jackets daily. It is up to you whether or not you keep a separate pair of snow pants and boots at school, but please be sure to label them. (I suggest having a separate bag for these items as it it is difficult to cram them all into a school bag.) Also, understand that we are not responsible for any lost property.

Thank you for your cooperation.

11/23 Early Dismissal Sign Up


Wednesday (11/23) is an Early Dismissal day. If your child(ren) will need childcare in the afternoon you must sign up (regardless if Wednesday is normally a scheduled day for your child).

Early Dismissal/Off School Sign up:

The deadline to sign up is this Wednesday (11/16).

Childcare Payments

It is important to keep your accounts up-to-date.

As a general reminder, the Childcare Handbook (pg 3) states the following about making payments for care:

"Fees are to be prepaid on a minimum weekly basis. All fees are due the Friday (or the last day each week your child is in attendance) before services rendered. (*Exception: Drop In Care participants) Online payment will be accepted until Sunday. If fees are not paid on time, a $15 late fee will be added. If all fees are not received within one week, childcare services will be suspended without notice until full payment is received. "

Please pay close attention to your email statements and be vigilant in keeping your account current.

Thank you for your cooperation!
