Dearest families and friends,

Our family has suffered a tremendous shock this week. Our daughter, Audrey, was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer. She will begin a treatment of chemo and radiation to try to control the tumor, but it is incurable. We are not sure of anything at this time, but I am sure I will need to take days off during the coming months. Our substitute list includes several wonderful, loving teachers who will take the best care of your children when I need to be gone. We so appreciate the heartfelt support, love and encouragement from everyone. The future looks dark, but your wonderful shining lights of love will carry us through this bleak time. Thank you for everything!!

The Martinez Family

Dear Families,

Mrs. Martinez's daughter will be starting treatment very soon and we would love to rally together and make a treatment basket for her. The basket will consist of a variety of gift cards, books and items to keep her comfortable during treatments and after. If you would like to contribute to this basket you can Venmo Ellen DeVilbiss, our 4's Coordinator, @Ellen-DeVilbiss, you may need Ellen's last four digits of her phone number for Venmo (8584) to donate. Another option is to bring cash in an envelope with "Chemo Basket" written on it to the Treasurer's box inside the school. We will stop taking donations for the basket on Friday, October 21st. All extra funds will be collectively used for a financial gift to the family

We are also organizing another fundraiser that will give money directly to Audrey and her family to help support them during this challenging time. There will be more news about this in the coming weeks. With the holidays soon approaching, we want to make sure they have everything they would need. 

If you would like to help them with a meal, Mrs. Martinez's other daughter, Teresa created a Meal Train. Here is the link.

Lastly, if you would like to bless Mrs. Martinez or Audrey with an encouraging note, we will have notecards and a basket available on the front table Monday morning. Feel free to write words of encouragement that they can read during these difficult days ahead. If children want to draw a special picture, they can do that as well. We will have this out for a few weeks and can deliver as they come in. 

If you have any questions at all, please email Ellen DeVilbiss at [email protected]

Thank you for all your love and support,

Community Preschool Board Members

      Welcome to a New Year of Preschool! In-Person Classes Begin on Tuesday, September 8!

      We are so happy to announce that we have been cleared by Larimer County Health and Environment and our state Licensing Specialist from the Colorado Office of Early Childhood to open our doors again in September and welcome back all of our wonderful families! Our teachers and board of parent volunteers have been working hard to put new procedures in place to ensure the safety of our students and staff. While a few additional procedures need to be followed, we remain committed and most concerned with providing our young students with the nurturing and stimulating environment that is so important for their first adventure in education. These are temporary changes, and we plan on returning to our regular schedule when possible.

      Drop-off – Parents will meet their child’s teacher outside the playground gate. Children will need a temperature check (100.3 degrees or lower). Each class will meet separately outside.

      Snack Time – For now, we will need parent helpers to bring individually-wrapped, prepackaged snacks when they parent help.

      Classrooms – We will need to limit table activities to 4 children per table. Additional sanitizing of surfaces and items will take place during class. Our teachers will help keep large groups of children from gathering in one area.

      Pick-up – Children will walk outside with their teacher to their parents.

      Parent Helpers – We would like to have the same helpers aid on consecutive days as much as possible to limit exposure. We realize this may not work for all families, and we are happy to help work out alternate days. Before entering the preschool, parent helpers will also need their temperatures taken. While in the preschool, please social distance from other adults.

      Masks – Following the guidelines of  the Colorado Office of Early Childhood, students, parent helpers, and teachers will all wear masks. We know this may be difficult, especially if your child hasn't been wearing one. To help them prepare, please start slowly having them wear a mask and build the habit over time.

      Hand Washing – Children will wash their hands after coming inside, before snack, and after using the restroom as usual, but will include more frequent and longer hand washing.

      Isolation – If a child becomes ill, we will isolate that child in the hallway and notify the parent immediately.

      We are grateful for your patience and understanding while we develop these new procedures. We will continue to work closely throughout the year with our licensing specialist and the Health Department to make alterations as conditions change.  Please, do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. We have missed our fabulous Community Preschool families and can’t wait to see you!

      We are looking forward to a great 2020–2021 school year!

      Our Preschool Will Be Closed through May. But We Will Reopen in the Fall for the 2020–2021 School Year

      After discussing the COVID-19 pandemic with the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment, our state licensing specialist, and other area preschools, we have made the very difficult decision to close our preschool for the remainder of the 2019–2020 year. We will reopen in the Fall.

      These times are unsettling and unexpected, and we're heartbroken and so sorry that we will not be able to end the year with you and your children. Teachers and board members are working on a plan to stay connected to all of our families during this difficult time, and we'll be in touch. For now, we hope you and your children are safe and healthy.

      If you have questions about tuition reimbursement, please contact the treasurer. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support.

      We will get through this together.

      • Pack plates and plasticware/silverware for your family. Also bring any serving utensils needed for your potluck dish.
      • And most importantly, have fun!

      Because we are a corporation, and parents are members of that corporation, all members must attend one yearly meeting​. Parent orientation serves as that annual meeting. Community Preschool is holding parent orientation on several dates and times in August and September. At least one parent MUST attend one session. All sessions will be held at the school.

      New Family Orientation
      (30 to 45 minutes. Open to New or Returning Families.)
      • August 23 at 9:30 a.m.
      • August 23 at 10:30 a.m.
      • August 28 at 6:00 p.m. 
      Returning Family Orientation
      (20 minutes. For Returning Families only.)
      • September 5 at 9:15 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. 
      • September 6 at 9:15 a.m.

      If you do not attend during a scheduled time, you will be required to pay for a private meeting for a fee of $40.

      You will be asked to sign a form attesting that you have read the entirety of the Community Preschool Parent Handbook.
