We hope you are all doing well and hoping that things will continue to progress in the right direction. I know several of our families need essential care but unfortunately we are unable to open May 18 as we anticipated. We appreciate your patience and understanding. "Open America Now" allows us to start preparing for the opening of Planet Preschool on June 3 with new guidelines in place. We are anticipating changes to our guidelines as things unfold and will provide them to our families as we get closer to confirming our date of return. Please let the children know their teachers are well and we miss them. ________________________________________________________
Email: 4/13 Dear Planet Families
We hope you are all well and had a Wonderful Easter!
Although these times have been filled with uncertainty, we are starting to hear some hopeful news.
“Officials and health experts agree that for California to maintain its initial curve-flattening success, residents must continue to heed the stay-at-home order and practice social distancing.”
“These numbers are far lower than projections in mid-March anticipated — so much lower, in fact, that one model moved the date of the expected peak of California's outbreak up two weeks, to April 14.”
"We're extending the health officer orders -- which, as you know, require a fair amount of distancing and continue to keep in place closures of non-essential business -- not because everything everyone has been doing isn't working...it's because it is working. We know it's effective, but we still have a ways to go in order to both protect the lives of people who live in our county and to make sure that our health care system remains fully able to service all who need their care," said Dr. Barbara Ferrer, Director of the Department of Public Health.
We are hoping this extra 2 week extension will help ease all of us back into society and our new "normal". As of now, we will anticipate opening Planet Preschool Monday, May 18.
If things continue to go in the right direction, we will be sending an email on May 1st that will outline our new guidelines that we have been working on and start preparing our Teachers and classrooms for your children.
We hope the kids are well, please tell them we miss them and can't wait to see them!
