ECEC 2020/2021 Information Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I know this letter comes with great anticipation and we are all excited to get the school year under way.

My name is Kaydee Fondaco and I am the Preschool Coordinator here at the Murray Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC). I have been working in Early Childhood for 20 years, most of which were within these walls. I look forward to a great year together!
Please read this letter in its entirety as it provides new ECEC policies and procedures for the 20/21 school year.

In order to follow safety precautions outlined by Murray City School District, The ECEC WILL NOT be hosting our traditional Back to School
OPEN HOUSE events. Registered students have been assigned to a classroom according to their age & class days. Classrooms are identified by colors (Red, Yellow, Green and Blue). Upon arrival on Sept 8/9 you will be given your child’s classroom information.

ECEC RETURN TO SCHOOL GUIDELINES are now available:
Every day your child will need to have the following items: a mask, backpack (with spare clothes in case of accident), & an empty reusable water bottle. If you do not have a water bottle the ECEC will provide ONE. Please label these items clearly (on the inside is ok for backpacks) with first & last name. Please remember that we have many students’ items to keep track of! Labels are important!

**CRITICALLY IMPORTANT **
*NEW DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP PROCEDURES*

Building access restrictions prevent us from allowing parents/guardians from entering our building. We have outlined a new drop off and pick up procedure and will ask that you exercise patience as we escort each child into their classroom safely. Please follow the instructions for our new procedure to enter the “Loading Zone”. These step by step instructions will be sent in a separate email entitled “NEW 20/21 ECEC Drop off & Pick Up procedures.”  You may also view them here: Drop off Pick up Procedures for ECEC During COVID-19
