Will teachers be allowed to bring their children to PD and prep days August 12 - 25?
We are asking teachers to secure childcare for these prep days as we prepare a safe environment and work on procedures for our incoming students.
We are attempting to open Shelby County Public School Daycares for staff only students from August 12-August 25. Depending on need, we will determine which centers will open for this time frame. Daycare for Kindergarten-5th students will follow the guidance documents published by the state. In order to safely open, children will remain in the same group of ten children all day without interacting with another group. We are only offering 5 days a week at $120 per child or $240 for the 10 days. Center hours are from 7:30am-4pm. We are working with our school cafeterias to provide breakfast, lunch and a snack each day. This is a service offered by SCPS. The cost of the service will help us "break even" because there is no funding source for employees and food. We hope this helps our teachers who need daycare services on these days. Afterschool care programs are also being planned for teachers and our community.
Here is a google form to begin the registration process for SCPS daycare for the dates of August 12-August 25. Registration must be completed by August 6th at 12:00 pm so that we can plan.
Afterschool care will be available beginning August 26th. Please use THIS FORM to register your child for this service.
