We're going to implement an optional Pickup/Drop-off line. Starting next week, there will be a site manager greeting cars at the side door (Fendall Ave). Site managers will be there 10 minutes before each period starts to 10 minutes after (9:20, 10:50, 12:20 for 2nd period pickup, 12:50, 2:20, and 3:50 for 4th period pickup). Parents who aren't using the pickup/drop off line should use the playground entrance to reduce congestion in the area where students are waiting. It is still fine (and appreciated) for parents to pickup children from the classroom. Anyone can drop off without signing up. If you would like to use the pickup line, please respond to this email or modify your child's forms (Registration->My Paperwork->Edit individual student) by Friday. We'll add a note to the roster for your student's final class and to their schedule sticker so that they can be directed to the pickup line. Pickup students should wait on the staircase just inside the doors until a site manager calls their name. If you end up picking up a child inside that you indicated would be sent to the pickup line, you must notify the pickup site manager. This service is intended for students who are comfortable with drop off and can find their classes. We'll have site managers to assist in finding classes, but if you have a younger student who still needs your support to get to their classroom, please continue to park and bring them in. You do not need to notify us of pickup plans for students that sign themselves in and out (13+).

Effective Sept 19, Ultimate Frisbee is moving to a new location at Washington Park. Please check your email for more information.

Classes with a make up currently scheduled for Nov. 14th: YouTube (all sections), Abracadabra (all sections), Ultimate, Auto Maintenance, 50 States (4th period), Rube Who?, and Bug Wars(4th period). Classes with a makeup on Nov. 21st: YouTube (all sections) and Auto Maintenance.

No class on Sept. 19th for Abracadabra Alakazam, YouTube, and Auto Maintenance. No class on Sept. 26th for Ultimate Frisbee, Vicious Vikings, and Tree Detectives.

We have made some important changes to our student registration forms. These forms can now be completed on the CHEC website. Please log into your account, and select “My Paperwork” under the Registration tab. Complete all of the information on this page, including the information under the “Edit” tab next to your child(ren)’s name(s). Make sure to read all of the Policies for Participation and sign at the bottom of the page. We need this paperwork completed before this Monday. Please complete it even if you have completed paperwork for us in the past.

Just a reminder that CHEC classes start in one week on Monday, September 12. Please check your email for important information regarding the first day. Contact us if you have not received the email.

For the fall term, CHEC will have a combination of indoor and outdoor class options. CHEC will follow CDC Covid recommendations. Under the current community level response system, this would mean requiring indoor masking if the community has a high level of Covid transmission, but not requiring indoor masking if our level is low or medium. Note that Louisa Cahan's We Are Artists class will require masks regardless of community level.

It's not too late to register for classes; although there will be a $5 late fee. Several classes still have space available, including Creative Filmmaking at Lighthouse Studios, Beginning Rocketry, Abracadabra Alakazam, and more! Classes will be held at the Fry's Spring Beach Club. Most classes will be outdoors, but we also have indoor and online options (as noted in the course descriptions). Masks are optional outdoors and required indoors unless otherwise noted in the course descriptions.

Just a reminder that you must sign your children in and out each Monday (or your teen must sign themselves in and out if you have given them permission to do so on our registration form). If you do not sign out, then our site managers will have to assume that your child has not been picked up and will have to call you at the end of the day.

If you have not already, don't forget to sign up for our CvilleCHEC Mobilize group. This is the best way to get email announcements about things like the Open House and our pizza lunches. This is also the best way to communicate with other CHEC parents about carpooling etc. You can find the group at https://cvillechec.mobilize.io/registrations/groups/27291

A couple of issues have come to our attention, so I wanted to let everyone know what CHEC’s peanut/tree nut and illness policies are. NUT POLICY As mentioned on our website, CHEC does not have a nut-free policy. However, several of our students have severe peanut and tree nut allergies. We encourage parents, students and teachers to refrain from bringing peanuts or tree nuts to CHEC. If you are the parent of a child with an allergy, please be aware that we cannot guarantee a nut-free environment. We are only tenants at Sojourners and have no control over what is brought into the building when we are not there. With that said, I encourage parents to talk with your children about washing hands and cleaning up messes after they eat, regardless of what it is (we also have children with egg, gluten and other allergies). This issue came up after we found a peanut butter sandwich scattered across the floor in the hallway. Things like Sunbutter are a great alternative. SICK POLICY It’s that time of the year, and the flu is going around. If your child is sick, please do not bring them to CHEC. Please wait at least 24 hours after a fever breaks before bringing your child to class. If a child becomes sick while at CHEC, we will call the parent to pick their child up as soon as possible. Thank you for you help and consideration.
