Overall, summer is progressing smoothly as a Centre. Sadly it is starting to come to an end; as families and staff prepare for the September calendar year. Due to COVID-19, the return to school calendar for September 2020-2021 will look different this year. Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board (KPRDSB) informed the Centre and parents with specific information pertaining to families attending the Brighton Public School. More information can be found on their website: http://www.kprschools.ca/en/COVID-19.html.
Unfortunately, the KPRDSB has not given the Centre or parents any clarity and/or information specific to September; other than what is provided above on their website. We understand this is frustrating for our SchoolAge and KinderCare families and will work together to ensure programming runs successfully for September 2020.
As a reminder for all families with children in the KinderCare and SchoolAge programs, due to the KPRDSB board ensuring preparation for COVID can be completed, the Centre must evacuate the premises as of August 21, 2020. Therefore, we will only be utilizing our designated spaces: both the toddler and preschool rooms until school returns and/or we receive more information from the KPRDSB.
Please continue to stay updated with our Centre and our tentative re-open date via our two portals: Webpage link: https://brightonkids.ca/ and/or the Sandbox App: https://parentportal.runsandbox.com/Login.
