WHAT TO BRING-All students will be required to wear a mask. Your child may also bring a water bottle with ONLY water in it, please. All supplies will be provided for your child. Please do not send in a backpack. If your child carries an epipen, they are allowed to have a bag with it in it.
ARRIVAL/DISMISSAL- Due to the short duration of time to disinfect between groups, doors will open 5 minutes before class starts. If the doors are locked, it is not time yet. ALL DOORS remain locked during learning sessions. Parents are asked not to come into the building. If your child needs to leave early, please send an email/text/note letting us know. You can drop off and pick up right in front of the building. Please do not leave until your child's temperature has been taken.
PARENT LIAISON- If you are interested in being a parent liaison, I would like one parent for each elementary group who would be willing to keep me connected on topics being learned, things going on in school, problems, etc. It should really only generally require an email once a week, but I do plan on offering some "experiences" for the children, so that may require making a couple of phone calls to set something up if I am teaching and cannot make calls during normal hours.
PRE-K STUDENTS- Any child enrolling in the preschool classes must be potty trained.
ABSENCES DUE TO COVID- If your child tests positive for COVID, please contact me immediately. That particular group will quarantine and I will credit those classes for the group during quarantine. If a family member of a GPI4L student tests positive AND the GPI4L student is NOT exhibiting signs of COVID, they are required to quarantine for 10 days.
ABSENCES- Due to the nature of the commitment and paying tuition for a duration of time, there will not be credit given for missed classes.
PAYMENTS- All payments all payments are due BEFORE class begins. Failure to do so will result in losing your spot. Also, any accounts with a remaining balance at the end of a session will not be able to register for a new session until it is paid.
WITHDRAWAL FROM GPI4L- There is a 50% penalty for withdrawal from the program. You will be expected to pay half of your remaining commitment.
INCLEMENT WEATHER- Since we will be in-person, I will send an email and text alert if weather is anticipated to be an issue. I will also post on my FB page and Instagram account if we will be closed due to weather. If you don't follow those pages, please do. Please send your child with a change of shoes or slippers on snowy days so we can keep our facility clean.
STAFF- Staffing will likely change from time to time. I am continually in need of substitutes and teachers with a certification. If you or someone you know might be interested, please email me with a letter of interest.
FIELD TRIPS/EXPERIENCES- I do plan on trying to incorporate meets up and trips once COVID restrictions are lifted.
BEHAVIOR- Due to the nature of a small group environment, if a child is disruptive and takes away from the experience of others, I have the right to remove them from the program without a refund.
