Dear Families,

Thanks to all of you who were able to attend our PK Information night, I know there were a few points of confusion, and I’d like to clarify. I was able to confirm today the Daily Family YMCA will be able to provide Before and After Care at each elementary site next year!  Before Care will be open from 7 – 8 am (with classes starting at 8) and After Care will be open until 6 pm.  

There are some details that are not yet finalized, but are coming soon. Here are the things we wanted parents to know early:

-- PK for 2020-21 enrollment opens March 30th at noon

-- Families will need two proofs of residency (gas, water, or electric bills), current shot records, and parent photo ID to upload to complete the enrollment process (from home or our from our enrollment center computers)

-- PK will use screening tools and/or parent interviews to get to know children and build balanced classes to best meet students’ needs.  

-- PK students will start classes 1week later than other students so appointments can be set with families during that week for screenings

-- Because PK enrollment has some limits due to legal restrictions on class sizes spots, could be limited

-- There is no specific set of criteria a child must meet (except being 4 years of age by Sept 1st) to enroll in PK 

-- PK will be filled by first come/first served who have completed enrollment (we use time stamps on enrollment packet completion)

-- PK will be offered in half day AM, half day PM, and full day next year.  Families should indicate a preference and we will do our best to honor it, but cannot guarantee it.

-- All PK students will receive the same level and amount of high quality programming, regardless of half or full day participation.

Please feel free to reach out if you have questions to any elementary site, our enrollment center (enrollment@bixbyps.org), or to me.
