Summer 2020 Program

UPDATED: May 27, 2020

Dear Grandview Heights Schools Kids’ Club Families,

 

We know many of you may be awaiting an update in regards to the Kids’ Club Summer Program due to the most recent release of the Responsible RestartOhio mandates from Governor Mike DeWine and Dr. Amy Acton for summer camps and childcare centers. 

 

As much as we would like to be able to provide a summer program, at this point the requirements would not allow us to provide anything close to what we have been able to offer in the past either in terms of experience or numbers.  We will be working hard preparing for the upcoming Kids’ Club Program that will resume when the 2020-2021 school year begins. 

 

As we stated in our previous announcement we must take this time to plan for proper group sizing and staffing to meet social distancing requirements, acquire supplies and materials to provide a safe and sanitary environment for your children, and provide staff training of the new rules and guidelines that will be in place when we enter the 2020-2021 school year.  

 

The safety of our students and staff remains our number one priority as we navigate through this uncertain time. We would like to thank you again for your understanding and are looking forward to serving our Grandview Heights Schools Kids’ Club families this upcoming school year.

 

Thank you, 

 

Colleen Adkinson, Director, and Amy Gardner, Assistant Director

Dear Grandview Heights Schools Kids’ Club Families,

 

We hope this letter finds everyone healthy and safe.  We know many of you rely heavily on the enrichment and care we provide to your children through the Kids’ Club Summer Program.  We love planning the summer program and know that the Kids’ Club Summer Program provides many opportunities for your children to participate in engaging and fun activities with their friends which keeps them connected to learning and their community throughout the summer. 

 

Based on information available right now, according to Governor Mike DeWine and Dr. Amy Acton most recent mandate, all school buildings and related facilities are “closed” through June 30, 2020.  After much discussion and deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Kids’ Club Summer Program.  Our ability to be able to provide the needed and required social distancing was one of the key challenges that has guided this difficult decision.We continue to wait on directives from the Ohio Department of Health and Ohio Department of Education regarding Health and Safety requirements that must be met in order to start the school re-opening process. 

 

In the meantime, we will focus on the upcoming school year and work closely with the district administration and local leaders to create a plan that provides a safe environment for all of our Kids’ Club families. We will work with the district to create a plan that is consistent in all aspects of your children’s daily interactions at school.  This process cannot be rushed and must be thoughtful. Some of the items that must be addressed include: social distancing practices, materials and supplies availability, cleaning requirements, group size, class size, staffing and staff training, and food safety.  This process will be our main focus in the coming months and we anticipate having a completed plan by August.

 

We would like to reiterate that the safety of our students and staff remains our number one priority as we navigate through this uncertain time.  Any fees paid toward the Kids’ Club Summer Program can be credited to your account and carried over to the 2020-2021 school year or refunded to you directly. 

Thank you for your patience in regards to this very important decision.  It is greatly appreciated.

 

 

Thank you, 

 

Colleen Adkinson, Director, and Amy Gardner, Assistant Director

 

 

UPDATE April 22, 2020 

Dear  Kids’ Club Families,   

 

We know many of you are attempting to prepare for summer and wondering if we will be moving forward with the 2020 Kids’ Club Summer Program.  

 

Based on information available right now, according to Governor Mike DeWine and Dr. Amy Acton, social distancing practices will remain the norm for the foreseeable future.

 

We are waiting on a decision from the Governor in regards to summer programming and, therefore, have little to no control in the final decision.    Ultimately Governor Dewine, state and local leaders and Superintendent Andy Culp will impose the final decision.

 

The safety of our students and staff remains our number one priority as we navigate through this uncertain time.   We are recommending that as parents/guardians, you move forward with finding alternate care, as we cannot guarantee we will be able to continue with our summer program.  

 

Thank you for your patience in regards to this very important decision.

 

Thank you,

 

Colleen Adkinson, Director

Amy Gardner, Assistant Director

Re: Summer program FULL

 

We regret to announce that at this time we cannot accept any further registrations for the summer program, having reached our total capacity.  With new updates from the cdc/governor and leading state officials, we cannot predict what the coming weeks/months will bring.  We do know it is imperative that we operate within these guidelines for the safety of all. 

Thank you for your partnership in keeping our community safe and healthy.
