Dear Families and Staff, We are thankful that the I-85 interstate fire and collapse resulted in no injuries or loss of life. We realize that this is the route many of our families and staff travel each day and understand how fortunate we are that everyone was able to arrive to their destinations safely. The Clifton School will open and operate within normal business hours tomorrow. Please use the link below to check MARTA transportation routes to assist with alternative transportation plans. http://www.itsmarta.com/ We will be sure to keep you informed if there is a need to adjust our plans.

Summer Camp 2016! We have been busily preparing for summer camp! This year the children will enjoy swimming, water play and exciting fieldtrips on and off site. This year’s theme is: Discovery. Summer camp registration begins January 25th for in-house/actively enrolled families and on February 4th for all other eligible families. Your child is eligible for summer camp if they are: age 4 through age 9. If they are transitioning to kindergarten (age 5 by September 1, 2016) or leaving The Clifton School to attend an outside Pre-K program in the Fall (age 4 by September 1, 2016) they must register for summer camp to make room for incoming students. Any age-eligible child whose parent works for Emory, CDC or CHOA or is a full-time Emory student is also able to enroll in summer camp, regardless of whether the family has ever had a child enrolled at either Clifton School location. More information regarding summer camp schedules and fieldtrips will be sent out prior to registration. Enrollment Intent Forms will be distributed to families this week. These forms provide families with an opportunity to make requests for the coming school year’s classroom placements and inform us of any upcoming changes in their children’s enrollment. We ask that families return the completed forms by February 1st . The intent form is to be completed by all families, infant-preschool. Subsidy: If you are receiving a subsidy, documents for renewal are due by April 15th. For more information on subsidy renewal and eligibility please contact: Andrea Bourne (email@example.com ) at the Clifton site or Daneill Gunn (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the Clairmont site. 2016 School Closings Monday, January 18th Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Monday, February 15th Staff Professional Development Day Monday, May 30th – Friday, June 3rd Move Up Week Monday, July 4th Independence Day Monday, September 5th Labor Day Thursday, November 24- Friday November 25th Thanksgiving Friday, December 23rd and Monday, December 26th Winter Holiday Friday, December 30th New Year’s Eve Inclement Weather Policy During times of inclement weather, both schools will be open.

In the event that the weather should turn icy during the day, we request that families pick up their children as soon as possible so that everyone is able to travel home safely.
