Healthy Kids Child Care Letter



Dear Parents, Guardians,
 
When I looked at our area and the child care needs of our faculty and staff and of our community as a whole, it occurred to me that we needed additional child care in our part of the county.
 
I contacted Healthy Kids since they are a leader in the area and beyond in child care services.
Healthy Kids and I toured our elementary school and identified space for a program that could house up to 20 students. They will have their own bathrooms and exit door for when they bring the children outside. 
 
Healthy Kids informs me that they currently have about 12 children enrolled with room for children of first responders and essential workers. There is a maximum of 20 students for the program. 
 
Child Care does not take the place of school nor is it school. It is Child Care. We do however expect Eldred students to do their virtual learning.when in child care. The staff of Healthy Kids are there to monitor students. Not to teach or enforce remote learning.
 
 So one may ask then why can't the student join their classmates down the hall. Well we are limited in every class to a number of students that can be socially distanced. Thus a student may be able to attend child care in the same building where they cannot "fit" into the limited safe space in the classroom and that is why we have A and B weeks.
 
While I am speaking of virtual learning, it is important to note that attire and language while on the virtual learning is expected to be consistent with what occurs in school. Students should be dressed and on task when class begins. Playing video games or being in their pajamas is not consistent with school behavior. Please remind your child that whether in the building or at home , they are considered to be in school. I thank you for your support and understanding during this time. Please email me, call me or come in to discuss any concerns or difficulties you may have. We are here to help you to help your child.
 
Thank you, John Morgano, Superintendent
