JANUARY NEWS

Welcome Back! We hope you all had a wonderful holiday.

During January and February, it can be difficult to plan outside playtime. Please note, if the temperature is at least 15-20 degrees, we will try to get outside. Icy conditions and the wind chill factor will be taken into consideration. The final decision, of course, will be made with the safety and comfort of the children in mind. Once again, we ask you to please label all clothing, mittens, shoes and snow pants, as many look alike.

In case of bad weather, The Episcopal Preschool follows the same school closing schedule as Lake Forest District 67. We will be checking District 67’s web page in the morning for cancellation information. If school is cancelled, we will put a message on the Preschool office answering machine stating that The Episcopal Preschool will be closed for the day. You may also check District 67’s website directly if you are unsure of school status, as they make the decision very early in the morning. Their web address is www.lf67.org. As always, the decision to come to school is yours. If you are uncomfortable driving under the current weather conditions, stay home or come late. If it starts to snow during the school day, and the decision to close schools is made, we will contact you.

Registration for the 2021-2022 school year begins Monday, January 11th. Currently enrolled students will have the opportunity to register first and then enrollment for siblings opens on Wednesday, January 13th. Please return your application forms with enrollment deposit as promptly as possible, as we need to calculate available spaces for the next year. Beginning Thursday, January 14th we will be registering the children of past EPS families and members of The Church of the Holy Spirit. If you have a sibling you plan to enroll next year, please contact Melanie Upfold regarding the necessary forms if you have not already done so. All registration forms were placed in tote bags on Wednesday, December 9th. If you have not received yours (currently enrolled or sibling), please contact the Preschool office (847-234-7980) to request another or you may download the form from our website, www.theepiscopalpreschool.org. Beginning Tuesday, January 19th enrollment will be open to the general public.
