  • July 29, 2020: When pulling up at our playground sites, parents should wear a mask, stay in the car and have children unlocked from car seats. If parents need to strap their child in, they should pull to the side/end of the driveway. This will allow for a smoother flow of traffic so that parents are not taking the time to get out of their vehicles without a mask. Thank you!
  • July 27, 2020: It was a great first day of summer playground! Below are a few friendly reminders for families:
    • Parents are strongly encouraged to walk their children to camp; it will make the drop off and pick up much easier each day. It will also allow for less congestion of cars on Merrick Road and Union Avenue.
    • Parents are asked to not to step out of their cars during pick up and drop off and should roll down their windows to answer COVID-19 questions in the morning.
    • Please apply sunscreen on children and be certain that they bring enough water for camp each day.
  • July 22, 2020: Summer Playground begins this Monday, July 27 at 9:00 a.m.! Below are a few things to keep in mind:
    • There will be a special walkers line at the drop off site. Please be sure that you and your child wear a mask at the drop off site.
    • Sprinklers will be available every day beginning on the first day of camp; be certain that children wear some form of pool shoes if using the sprinklers and bring a towel that is not to be shared with any other camper.
    • Don't forget to bring a couple of bottles of iced water. 
    • Don't forget an extra two masks and a reading book in a zip lock bag marked with the child's name and grade that he/she will be attending in September.
    We look forward to seeing you on Monday!
