PECC October 2014 Newsletter

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

Peanut Butter Week October 6-October 13
PECC will be participating in Prairie Village’s Peanut Butter Week for Harvesters. PECC’s goal is for each child to bring one jar of peanut butter to share with those in need. Your generosity will be greatly appreciated by the many adults and children in our community who need nourishment.

Dressing for the Weather
The temperatures are beginning to fluctuate daily. 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. Extra sets of clothing should be labeled and include clothing appropriate for cooler temperatures.

Late Fee Charge
We know that there will be circumstances when you 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 p.m.. The charge will be added to your child’s tuition fee the following month.

Please be prompt in picking up your child(ren) and call Karen when a circumstance develops and you will be late.
