K2 Campus Families,
I am hopefully optimistic that we see a light at the end of the tunnel! On Monday, Governor Abbot announced that he is allowing the stay at home order to expire this Thursday and that some businesses will be allowed to re-open for Phase 1.
On Thursday, April 9, 2020 Child Care Licensing required day cares to have all families attending childcare fill out Form 7265. This form stated which essential field your profession falls into. This form is licensing’s attempt to communicate that care is for essential workers only. Even though Texas is going back to work, they have not pulled back the form requirement. If you are ready for your children to return to K2, we will have you complete the form at drop off. Form 7265 is attached for you to review.
We need 24 hours’ notice you’re coming back:
Due to the current low attendance numbers, we have reduced our staff in the building. Many of our teachers are working remotely and/or only coming in the building a few hours a day. All of our staff are ready to return to working in the building, but we need to give them a day notice. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the date you are wanting to resume care and we will be expecting you.
School Age Camps:
Many families have asked about day camps for school age children. Unfortunately, school age camps do not qualify for a Phase 1 Opening, but we believe they will be set to open in Phase 2. So, what does this mean for K2 Academy’s Day Camps? If Phase 1 goes well, then Phase 2 is set to begin in Texas on May 18th. K2 has a 3-step plan for re-introducing our programs to ensure safe standards are being followed for our employees, students and parents. When working on K2’s Guide to re-open, we are taking into account the recommendations from the CDC, Governor Abbot and his team, USA Gymnastics and Child Care Licensing. Our tentative plan is outlined below. Again, these dates are not confirmed, simply estimations on what we anticipate is to come.
Thinking forward to our re-opening day, K2 is committed to best practices to contain the spread of COVID-19 and to keep our families safe. We will continue to do curbside pick-up and drop-off, screen children for temperatures and maintain our increased cleaning schedule.
I’d like to take a moment and say Thank You to the many families that have chosen to help K2 financially by choosing Option 1 or 2. K2 has been blessed to receive funding for the PPP loan/grant (in round 2!) from the government and your support helped us to float these past 6 weeks to stay current on bills and to pay as many employees as we could! From the bottom of my heart, Thank you.
Best wishes to you and your family and we are looking forward to seeing you soon!
President, K2 Academy & K2 Campus
