We are continuing to see an increase in illnesses as well as some positive COVID cases. Thank you for consistently monitoring your child for symptoms and taking proactive measures when he/she is not well.  Our healthcare and COVID policies have not changed and should any adjustments be necessary, they will be communicated to you.
Snow Days:
That time of the year is upon us.  As a reminder, this is our policy:
The snow closing policy for all students enrolled at Circle of Friends is determined by the severity of the storm. In the event of severe weather conditions, closing the school will be left to the Director’s discretion. The Director will email parents and send a message on Brightwheel by 6:00 AM and change the school’s voicemail message notifying parents of the delay or closure. If we are in session during a severe storm, Circle of Friends administration will call/email/Brightwheel message if an early dismissal is necessary.
For children enrolled in the 9 Month morning preschool program: If the opening of school is delayed past 9 AM the morning preschool program will be cancelled for that day.
The building will be closed for any state of emergency,for example: hurricanes, tornadoes, extreme weather,,pandemics, public safety emergencies, as well as building emergencies which would create an unsafe environment for children. 
Please reach out at any time with any questions.
Happy January,
