Dear UPK Families,
We have good news! The Maine-Endwell Central School District UPK programs for 20-21 have received news that there will be funding for this school year. The program will run all year as planned (pending any covid emergencies). Those families who have already received placement letters can plan to attend UPK this year on the same schedule as the rest of the district.
In order to provide the safest and most effective Pre- K program we are following the social distancing and MECSD protocols for all settings with half of the students coming at a time. These are posted on our MECSD web page.
Generally, students who have last name between A – K will attend on Blue days of Monday & Wednesday. Those with the last name starting with L – Z will attend Tuesdays & Thursdays. The days the children are not in attendance they will have a take home set of activities, reading log, student calendar checklist for home learning, or may even have a digital task. These will be returned to school so the teacher can help support the at home learning and account for your child’s attendance in the program.
During the upcoming weeks, all families will be receiving a letter from our office and the UPK site explaining details and the designated days and specifics to open house and site protocols.
If you are planning to decline your UPK slot, please email or call ASAP at (607)786-8244 so that those on the waiting list would then have offering of access to those slots. Please email any questions to [email protected]
Thank you for your patience and support as we push forward as a community in this challenging year.
