Lutz Learning Center COVID-19 Update: March 18th:
As of Thursday, March 18th we have not been mandated to close by the Department of Children and Families which oversees our licensing for the center.
Please know we are doing our due diligence in staying informed of the latest updates from DCF. Your child(ren) are our top priority. We understand that while many of our parents have the ability to quarantine their family, many do not. We are committed to supporting our families and our community relying on us each and every day.
The following is an update of our policies:
Parents are responsible to pay for the agreed schedule regardless if their child attends, including the holidays school is closed and understand this is factored into the tuition. No credits or discounts will be given for time that a child is not in attendance. If you would like to modify your programming options, you must notify us by 25th for the upcoming month and is contingent based on availability. For families choosing to withdraw, a re enrollment fee will be necessary.
Please refer to the Parent Manual for more details.
Thank you for your partnership in this matter.
Update: March 13th As our community prepares for the worst, we wanted to update our families on what our school is doing to help keep our students and families safe.
Our current position regarding the COVID-19 virus is a fluid policy due to the nature of this virus. We will make adjustments dictated by a change in status. We will adhere to any requests by the Health Department to close and will give you as much notice as possible. Fortunately, children haven’t been severely targeted by this virus. If we all work together we can hope to keep our program virus free.
Like other coronaviruses, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, which causes COVID-19, is thought to spread most commonly through invisible respiratory droplets sent into the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Those droplets can then be inhaled by nearby people or land on surfaces that others then touch, who can then get infected when they touch their eyes, nose, or mouth.
Here is our plan of defense:
Facing the unknown, many families are likely considering withdrawing from care at this time. Here's how that currently applies: Families must give notice by the 25th of the month (in the case, March 25th) and their deposit on account will be applied to the following month (in this case April). To withdraw, notice must be given here: http://www.lutzlearning.com/withdraw.html
What about Summer?
For preschoolers, the same policy above applies.
For elementary age summer campers, the following applies: Written notice of cancellation must be received more than SIX WEEKS prior to the session, 100% of the camp fee will be returned. If written notice of cancellation is received between FOUR (4) TO SIX (6) WEEKS prior to the session, 50% of the camp fee will be returned. If written notice of cancellation is received FOUR (4) WEEKS OR LESS prior to camp, the entire camp fee will be forfeited. Rebooking into an open session within the same calendar year is an option. If a participant leaves camp early, or is dismissed, no refund will be given. For families who prepaid summer to receive the discount, no refund is scheduled at this time. Final decision will be made public prior to April 25th.
