Welcome to Summer Smile!

Summer at Oakhill: All Smiles all the Time

It's time to ease into summer! Thank you for considering spending your summer with Oakhill. Although we're looking forward to the day when we can say we are Fully Charged again, we are excited for the opportunity to spend the summer with you... even if it looks a little different.

For summer 2020, we are excited to offer care for students grades Toddler (2-years old) through 8th Grade. Currently, registration is only open to Oakhill families. 

The health and safety of our community is our number one priority so we are taking all recommended preventative measures to minimize risk during your child's time with us this summer.

This year, please expect:

  • To sign up for a full week (because of the limited number of spaces we cannot allow drop-ins)

  • Priority enrollment to families who sign up for all 9 weeks of summer

Our procedures will continue to change throughout the summer to align with recommendations from local health officials to keep your child safe. Again, thank you for your interest and we cannot wait to spend the summer with you!

All other cancellations will be refunded according to the following schedule:

  • If you cancel with a 14-days notice you will receive a 75% refund
  • If you cancel with 5-7 days notice you will receive a 50% refund
  • If your child is sick or is not allowed entry because of suspected illness no refunds will be issued

Summer Travel Recommendations

We ask that families who choose to travel throughout the summer while registered for our care follow CDC recommended guidelines before returning.

Travel Recommendations

Cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) have been reported in all states, and some areas are experiencing community spread of the disease. Travel increases your chances of getting and spreading COVID-19.

The CDC recommends you stay home as much as possible, especially if your trip is not essential, and practice social distancing especially if you are at a higher risk of severe illness. Don’t travel if you are sick or travel with someone who is sick.

Reporting Summer Absences

We plan to take attendance daily throughout the summer and ask that you report any daily absences to the school nurse.

To report an absence, call 816-436-6228 and press 5.

Participation in summer camp will involve social interaction with others as well as physical activities. As such, participation in summer camp entails known and unanticipated risks, which could result in physical or emotional injury, sickness, paralysis, or death as well as damage to property. Parents and guardians understand that such risks simply cannot be eliminated, and parents and guardians elect to have their children participate in summer camp despite the risks.
