Dear Parent(s) or Guardian:

I will be out of the office starting on October 21, 2015 on medical leave for two to four weeks. While I am gone, Ariel Brooks, a Kids’ Camp aide from Park Elementary, will be coming in several days a week to collect paper registrations and payments turned in at the District Office. She will be maintaining rosters and checking my emails for payment and registrations several times a week. She will only open emails that pertain to payment and registrations. Please type “Registration” in the subject line to ensure that your email is read. She will not be checking or responding to non-registration emails. During my absence, Ariel will also be updating information on our web page and on the automatic response received when an email is sent to my address. We strongly encourage advanced planning and early registrations. November registration begins on October 16th
