With the cold and flu season hitting, I want to remind parents of our policies regarding sick children. Due to COVID, these policies have been extended based on Ashland County’s regulations. The requirements are as follows prior to returning to LFOJ.
* 72 hours vomit free
* 72 hours diarrhea free
* 72 hours free from a high temp of 100 & >
* 72 hours on any antibiotic
If you have COVID symptoms or have been exposed to COVID, please contact LFOJ Administration immediately.
Please watch your email for an invitation link to Kangarootime. It is required that you set up your account. This will be the new way that you sign-in and sign-out your child/ren from the center. It will also be the new way forms and updates will be implemented.
If you have any questions and need help with setup, please reach out to administration and we will help.
Reminder ~ If the Ashland School District closes due to snow, LFOJ will be closed. If the Ashland School District closes due to low temperatures, LFOJ will be open. If temperatures are dangerously low, LFOJ may decide to close. Scheduled children will be credited for unplanned closings.
Happy February I/T Families!
We have some big changes this month. We said good-bye and good luck to Ms. Nikki, and get to congratulate Ms. Molly on taking the lead teacher position. Please be patient with us during this transition.
This month we will be talking about friendship, our love for God, families, and under water animals. Our bible stories are going to be, “Jesus and the Little Children”, “Best Friend, Jesus”, “Thank you God for Mommies and Daddies”, and “The Story of Moses”.
Just a reminder please make sure your kiddos have extra clothes in case of messes.
Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
Ms. Molly & Ms. Taylor
Ms. Nikki has decided to step away from LFOJ to focus on herself and her family at this time. Ms. Nikki’s last day with us was January 26th, 2021. We wish her the best and our prayers are always with her and her family.
Happy Love month!
This month we focus a lot on love, kindness, friendship, and the love God has for us.
Our themes for the month are going to be color mixing, showing kindness, a heart for God, and farm animals.
Our bible stories are going to be, “Jesus’ First
Miracle”, “The Good Samaritan”, “Jesus and the Children”, and “The Lost Sheep”.
We are celebrating two birthdays this month. Happy birthday to Lucas V. and Jake J. Lucas is turning 5 and Jake is turning 3. Where does the time go?
As everyone knows, we will be celebrating Valentines Day this month and we would like to have a party for the kiddos. I will send more information closer to the week of February 8th.
We want to try something new this month and are hoping for everyone’s help! During our Jesus/Calendar time, we like to have the kids pick what/who we pray for. We thought it would be nice to have parents/guardians to submit special prayers for us to say during this time. You can either e-mail them to me or you can write them down and leave them at the center. Your participation would mean a lot to staff and the kiddos.
As a reminder, continue to send extra clothes in case of accidents. Along with outdoor winter clothing.
Happy February Everyone!
It feels like February snuck up on us. How is January already over? I hope everyone is having a good 2021 so far. I am excited for all of our kiddos to be back in school! Even though we miss having them throughout the day, I know they enjoy being back with their friends and teachers. We will continue to pray that everyone stays healthy and we can stay in school.
We have two birthdays this month. Happy birthday to Parker L. and Thomas S.
