A Note from Our MDO Director & 2020-2021 Parent Handbook

Epworth MDO, Preschool & Kindergarten Families,

Hope everyone is enjoying their extended summer! We are excited to share some of our reopening information with you! So many are concerned with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) crisis that is spreading through our community as well as our country, we want to assure you that we are monitoring the local and state situation closely. Based on information we have at this time, we plan to reopen Epworth UMC MDO, Preschool & Kindergarten for the new school year. Our first day of school will be Monday, August 31, 2020. Open House will be scheduled Wednesday, August 26th through Friday, August 28th, by appointment only, and limited to 2 families at a time in each classroom so we can maintain social distancing. Your child’s teacher will contact you soon with more information and available appointment times. Just a heads up, please have your children practice wearing facial coverings or a mask! We plan to start this school year as safe as possible. If anything should change, we will notify you immediately.

Effective today and for the foreseeable future, we will be taking extra precautions to ward off COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We are taking extra steps to support the health and safety of your children, your families, our staff and their families. This school year may be a little different as we adjust to the “new normal” but we know it will be filled with creative, fun, and educational experiences. We look forward to watching your children learn and grow with us this year. In order to reopen we must practice enhanced sanitation and social distancing guidelines in accordance with the CDC, ADPH, and the NAC of Methodist Churches. Please feel free to contact us with any questions and concerns, we are in the final stages of confirming the reopening plan and will release more information soon.
