FlipSide is our program which compliments and coincides with the district's ever-changing programming. Until school resumes in-person, we will be offering care that supports learning in small and isolated groups of kids. Our programs have remained open, operating and serving families and we are practiced and confident about our ability to keep kids. staff, families, and the community safe.
We know this time of uncertainty is stressful for everyone, but please help assure your children that they will have a space where their peers and teachers will care about their health, safety, learning and fun!

Paperless curb-side drop off between 7:30 and 8:30 am and pick up between 4:00 and 5:30 pm. All children and staff will be screened daily for symptoms. Any child or staff experiencing symptoms will be excluded from the program until they have been symptom-free for 72 hours. Staff will be required to have a negative test result for COVID for any symptoms related to COVID per LCHD recommendations in order to return to work.
Parents provide children with lunch, snacks, water bottle, masks, needed technology/supplies for learning (pencils, notebooks, etc to be kept in children's backpacks and not handled by other students (this way, if we feel our supplies have been contaminated in any way and we need to eliminate them from the program for the day, children will still be able to complete their school work.
In general, we do not want children to be learning through screens or sitting at desks for long hours of the day. We plan to have our youngest group participating in two 45 minute long learning times, our middle age children in two hour-long sessions, and the oldest children with more flexible time-tables as needed. We will continually evaluate this and respond to child and learning needs. Additional learning time can be provided if needed. Children who finish work will always have additional choices. Please be prepared to communicate with us what might work best for your family.
Learning will also happen through STREAM activities, outdoor learning, friendships, free play and many more opportunities.
