PARENT HANDBOOK UPDATES
In June of 2019, our licensing agency, the Tennessee Department of Human Services, created new rules for licensed childcare programs. We have been updating (and will continue to update) our policies and procedures to be in compliance with TNDHS rules and regulations. Most recently, our CDC Board approved changes to our expulsion policy, our grievance policy and began creating a new risk management plan. To read the new policies, please visit our website at www.knoxvillefumc.org/preschool.html and click the ABOUT US tab. The revisions to the above-mentioned policies are featured on pages 12 and 13 of our PARENT HANDBOOK.
Please join us FOR OUR FINAL LET’S CONNECT OF THE SCHOOL YEAR on Monday, 5/20 from 7:00 – 8:00 at Leigh Feld’s house (9052 Legends Lake Lane, 37922. Hannah will be sharing her thoughts on learning how to utilize play as a tool for connection and co-operation in your family! Nibbles will be served! Please RSVP to Leigh at leigh @knoxvillefumc.org or Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org

Please apply sunscreen before your child comes to school. If we have a permission slip and bottle of continuous spray sunscreen, we will reapply for afternoon playground time!
Thank you for ensuring that your child has a full set of extra clothes (including shoes!) at school. At the beginning of the new school year, we purchased over $100 of extra clothes to be used in emergencies and those clothes have disappeared. If you have clothes you don’t recognize, they may be ours and we would love to have them back! Additionally, if you have clothes your child has outgrown, we’ll be happy to take them off your hands!
IN SEARCH OF…
We will be spending a lot of time at the Pavilion and grassy areas behind the Parish House this summer while our playground is being renovated and we are searching for some wagons to help us haul our gear. If you have a wagon you’re looking to rehome, please let us know!
We are also searching for child sized picnic tables! Thank you!
