Reminder for Third Base Families

Category : Announcements

“Professional Learning Days”

Kanawha County Schools has scheduled five full “Professional Learning Days” in the 2019-2020 school-year calendar in lieu of the ten 2-hour early dismissals we have had the last several years.  These are days that students will not be in school at all, but school professional and service staff will report for Faculty Senate and professional development opportunities.  Just a reminder to our families that Third Base is always closed when school is not in session for students.  Our child care licenses cover after school hours only (called Out of School Time licenses), not full day child care, and many of our staff work during the day at a second job and/or go to school.  We wanted to make sure all Third Base families were aware of these upcoming dates so they can make other arrangements for child care on those days. For those families who have CONNECT or LINK, you can contact your caseworker and get a certificate for a second provider if you are able to find another center that can provide care on these days.  Thanks to all our families for your continued support of our program!
