Stay Safe this 4th of July

“Fireworks were involved in at least 12 deaths and more than 10,000 injuries treated in U.S. hospital emergency departments in 2019, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).”
From the AAP, here’s how to stay safe this July 4: ​Each July 4th, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks. The AAP continues to urge families NOT to buy fireworks for their own or their children's use. Learn more here.

17 Ways to Celebrate Juneteenth With Kids

Here are 17 great ways to teach your child about Juneteenth and it's significance. Celebrate this historic day!

This summer Eat Smart To Play Hard! Check out this printable guide from the USDA to help your family make healthy moves this summer:

Dear families,

I hope this message finds you well. Many of you have reached out about the letter that was sent out regarding vacation credits and information for returning to school. We wanted to reach out to help you better understand how you should proceed with tuition moving forward and get a clear understanding on the modified policies implemented due to Covid-19 restrictions.

As of now, you will not need to continue to make payments to your account until you return to care. You will not be in jeopardy of losing your child’s placement. However, due to current social distancing rules, we are only able to operate at half capacity. This means that once all the classrooms have been filled to a maximum of 10 people including teachers and ratios considered, we will have to move to a wait list system.

We are requesting that all families give us a definitive date they will return no later than Friday, May 29th, 2020. We understand that with the ever-changing climate and uncertainty of returning to work that this may be difficult at this time. However, we need to be able to accommodate the families that are ready to start or return to care and ensure we are properly staffed. Once a date is given, if you choose not to start on that date, you will have the option to pay your full tuition to hold that space. Your credits that you have accumulated during your absence can be used for this as well. If you choose not to pay for the space, you will be moved to the end of the waiting list and called as spaces become available. This will be the practice until either the restrictions are modified or terminated. If we do not receive a date by Friday May 29th, we will assume that you would like to be placed on the wait list. We are no longer able to accommodate changing starting dates.

As always, we are here to answer any questions and concerns you may have.

Another episode of Ms. Jess Makes a Mess!

As we go throughout the next month or so, we know families are preparing to come back to school. These are new health and safety precautions we have implemented. We want to be prepared to greet and meet the children's needs as they come back into school. So we are asking families to please allow us a two week notice before you plan to start. Please email or call us to let us know what day the children will be coming back. We are so excited to gradually have our Merit School Family back together again!

Thank you to our families for the food! Our teachers feel appreciated ❤

Tomorrow is:

Fortunate Friday!
For our teachers and staff that are still at school, sending them food would make their day! Order any food for delivery to deliver to the school!

Our teachers are loving Teacher Appreciation week! Don't forget its Watercolor Wednesday, create a beautiful piece of art for your teacher, take a picture and send it to us!

Another day of Teacher Appreciation week! Today is Teaching Tuesday, please have the kids draw a picture or write a note about one thing any of our staff has taught them! Email them to [email protected]

❤We love celebrating our Teachers❤
