Signup will be on Monday October 16th – mark your calendars! We will send an email that day at 12:00 PM with a link to the Sign Up Genius. Sign up is on a first come first serve basis and there are 25 slots for each day.
The program will run from January through May, starting the week of January 8-12.
(The subsequent dates will be Feb 5-9, March 5-9, April 16-20, and May 7-11.)
You will be signing up for the same day for every month (for example, if you sign up for Mondays, you will attend on January 8, February 5, March 5, April 16, and May 7).
Each session will run from 3:45 to 4:30 PM. Each week, the children will be introduced to a new area of the school (library, art room, cafeteria, playground, and, lastly, a bus ride).
Please email us at SOSBHPA@gmail.com if you have any questions!
(but first, read these FAQs as we might already have answered for you 🙂 )
Q: I am not a member of the BHPA – can my child still attend SOS?
A: You must be a current member of the BHPA in order for your child to attend SOS. If you are unsure of your membership status, please email the membership chair at BHPAmembership@gmail.com. You can easily join the BHPA by going to http://www.bhpa.info/ and clicking on the “Join Now!” link
Q: Do I have to stay at the school during the SOS session?
A: Yes. A parent or caregiver must remain on site during the 45 min session
Q: Can I go in the room during the session to watch what is going on?
A: Unfortunately, not. The only parents who are allowed in the room with the kids are the 3-4 parents who have volunteered to help. (But let us know if you would like to volunteer – we still have some spots open!)
Q: Can I bring siblings?
A: Siblings cannot take part in the 45 min session – they will have to remain outside the room with you.
Q: If one of the dates in my chosen session doesn’t work for me, can I switch to another day that week?
A: We cannot guarantee that you will be able to switch your day. You can contact us the week prior to the session and we can let you know if there is availability on another day for your child to attend.
Q: If my child is sick, can I attend another session that week?
A: Same answer as above. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that they can attend another session. But you can check in with us and we will let you know that week.
We look forward to a great 2018 S.O.S program!
