November 2015 Parent Information

Picture Days
Wednesday, November 4 and Thursday, November 5
Don’t forget picture days! Children not normally in attendance on the above dates may still be photographed. Appointments can be made by contacting Karen Fenton at 913-236-7067 or her email; Young siblings may also be photographed. Photograph appointments will occur from 8:30-9:00 am or 12:00-12:30 on both days.

Cancellation of School
PECC follows the Shawnee Mission School District for school closing due to weather. When Shawnee Mission schools are closed, PECC is closed. On snowy or icy days, please listen to your local television station, radio station or visit to find out if Shawnee Mission is closing school due to inclement weather. Parents will not be contacted on days when PECC is closed due to weather conditions.
PECC does not make up days for snow days or provide credit for school/PDO cancellations due to inclement weather and parents are expected to pay for snow days.

Food Drive
PECC’s annual food drive for families at Prairie Early Childhood Center and Prairie Baptist Church will occur November 1-24. Boxes for food items will be in the PDO I hallway and the Preschool hallway. Be looking for additional information in a few days.

Emergency Evacuation Plan
It is essential that parents sign in each day their child attends PDO, Preschool or Kindergarten Prep. Not only does signing in help keep your child safe but the provided information will help staff contact you if an emergency situation arises. Parents will be contacted if we cannot get back into the building so please make it a habit to sign in daily.
If we have to evacuate the premises, children will be taken to either Porter Park or Asbury United Methodist Church.

Dressing for Weather
The temperatures are beginning to fluctuate. To make sure that your child is comfortable outside, please put a labeled jacket in your child’s school bag. Unless it is inclement weather or the temperature is below thirty two degrees, the children will be playing outside.
This is a good time to switch out the extra clothing in your child’s bag. Extra sets of clothing should be labeled and include clothing appropriate for cooler temperatures.

Late Fee Charge
Circumstances can occur when a parent cannot arrive at PECC at dismissal time. However, when a parent has a habit of being consistently late, a late fee will be charged to the parent. The charge will be $1.00 per minute beginning at 2:35 pm. The charge will be added to your child’s tuition fee the following month.
