Re enrollment packets for 2016-2017 will be going out on Monday.
If you are returning to the center next school year the packets need to be turned in on or before Monday, May 2.
On May 3 available spots will be given to families on the wait list. Please allow yourself enough time to complete the forms- there are several pieces.
Also, the re enrollment fee needs to be separate from tuition.
I do not cash those checks until the summer after I get my contract from MPS. Thank you.
Snow and Cold Temps are headed our way! January 2016
Learning Links Closes the center any time Milwaukee Public Schools close. Stayed tuned to local news media.
Family Reminders August 2015
Hello Learning Links Families,
September 1 is the first day of the program. The center is in operation 6:45-8:45 and 3:30-6:00. The 4k and 5k children need to find alternate care on the days they do not attend MGIS during the first week of scattered attendance. Parents dropping off their child in the morning enter through the front doors and check in with Ms Bridget at the front desk. Please be aware the doors remain locked until 7:00. Each child has a designed area they will be directed to. Your patience is appreciated during this transition time. Things run much more smoothly after the first few weeks. Afternoon pick up is also at the front entrance of the school. During the first few weeks please remember to bring a photo ID when picking up your child. Children who are not scheduled in the afternoon must be taken to the cafeteria for parent pick up or the bus line. If the child is not scheduled with Learning Links they cannot be taken to the gym. Please advise your child's MGIS teacher which days they will attend Learning Links. Please be conscious of your child's scheduled session time in the before and/or after school program. Five minutes into the next session will result in a $5 penalty fee along with the $4.75 session fee. This is important because of the state regulation pertaining to child/staff ratio. Tuition is due on the first scheduled day of attendance. An additional $5 fee is added to any account that is late. Please contact the center at 262-617-1993 or at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime your child will not be attending.
If your child has medication that will be kept at the center I will need the medical form and non expired medication on the first day of attendance. The child cannot stay at the site without these. I have been asked by several families about the Thanksgiving break. This year the school is closed Monday, November 23-Friday, November 27. The center is guaranteed to be closed on the Thursday and Friday of that week. A survey will be sent out in mid September to inquire on the demand for care for the other days that week. The results of the survey will determine if the center can remain open.
Please visit our website at www.learninglinks-mgis.com or on Facebook.
If you have questions or concerns please email me.
Looking forward to another year!
Kristen and the Learning Links Staff
