December News for Parents

Happy December, ChildRoots families!



Inclement Weather Policy

With winter creeping ever closer, we've been focused on honing our inclement weather plan; should ice or snow happen over the next few months. We know how important it is for our families to have reliable childcare and, to that end, we try our absolute hardest to stay open regardless of weather conditions. We also want to ensure the safety of our teachers, who are coming into work from all over the surrounding region. 

In the event of severe weather and treacherous road conditions, we may choose to implement a 2-hour late opening OR close for the day entirely, depending on weather conditions. Any closures that occur will affect all ChildRoots locations. In the event that we do decide to close or open late, we'll be communicating this change both on the homepage of our website and via email by 6:00 AM. 


Emergency Contact Update

We're still missing mobile carrier information from many families -- please check to ensure that you've filled out the cell phone information form. This allows us to send text messages in the event of an emergency.

Parenting Classes

We're planning our next parenting class series, and we'd love to hear from you! What topics would you most like to hear about? Please fill out this quick survey, and let us know if you have any feedback!

Winter Faire

Our next magnificent community event is coming up soon! Plan on joining us on Sunday, December 18th anytime between 9:00 - 1:00. We'll be celebrating winter by transforming our Southeast school into a winter wonderland; complete with a winter gnome, an ice queen, a winter fairy, a wizard, and a sleepy bear. We have an amazing group of vendors selling handmade goods; music; and delicious food. Invite your friends and neighbors! This is an event not to be missed. 

The PCC Returns

We're looking forward to resuming our Parent Collaboration Committee next month! Our first meeting of 2017 will take place on Monday, January 16th at 6:00 PM. Do you have any all-school questions or concerns that you'd like addressed at this meeting? Please get in touch. ALL parents are welcome to join our executive director, Nina, at this meeting at our Southeast school. We're looking forward to seeing you there!
