Kids Care Distance Learning Support Program on hold.
We are sorry to report that the Kids Care Distance Learning Support Program received new guidance from Public Health on Wednesday (8/25) that has further delayed our opening. We are working to meet the guidelines so we are able to open the Kids Care Distance Learning Support Program as soon as possible. Thank you for your continued patience.
Spaces in the program - Full
Enrollment in the Kids Care Distance Learning Support Program is full at this time. The number of available spaces was extremely limited due to group size limits of 12 students, social distancing requirements and limited spaces in which to offer the program. Families may complete the interest survey if they wish to be placed on the wait list. Completion of the interest survey does not guarantee enrollment in the program.

The Kids Care DL support program is a full day/full week program that will be supporting students during the regular OAUSD distance learning hours, as well as providing enrichment activities in the afternoon. This program requires students to attend daily and for the full length of the program to meet their academic instructional minutes and maintain stable cohort groups.
Enrollment in the Kids Care DL Support program is open to OAUSD students entering Kinder -6th grade. We are sorry, but we are not able to serve TK students at this time.
Previous enrollment in the program and/or placement on the Kids Care Wait List will not be a consideration for the 2020-21 school year.

Terms of payment:
The Kids Care program is funded by parent payments. In order to provide our services and continue to pay increased staff and program costs during this crisis, we will not be providing refunds under any circumstances.

Kids Care Refund Policy
Refunds or adjustments will not be made for changes to or withdrawal from the program, absences, illnesses, holidays, vacations, emergency school closures, public health emergencies or suspensions. All payments are non-refundable.
Masks - Parent’s must supply their child(ren) with a clean cloth face covering each day. Staff and children will use cloth face coverings throughout the day indoors and outdoors when they are unable to maintain at least six feet distance and are away from their stable group. All students in 3rd grade and up are required to wear a face mask and students in Kinder-2nd are strongly encouraged to wear masks.
Daily Health Screenings - Our goal is to minimize the risk of infection to our staff and children through daily symptom and temperature screening. Symptom screening includes asking if the child or any person in the household has any symptoms of COVID-19. Symptoms to look for include but are not limited to fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, nasal congestion, headache and a general feeling of being unwell. Please keep your child(ren) home if they are showing any signs of illness, even if the symptoms resemble a mild cold.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to develop our operational plan. We will be notifying parents soon on how to sign-up for the program.
