EKHLA Dreamland Update !
Good Morning Families,
We are very excited to share a few renderings of the EKHLA building on Dreamland. The first is the view of the school from the “backyard” and the second is the walkway up to the entrance to the building and then a little further. the entrance to the gymnasium.
The last communication about the Dreamland Campus mentioned an open groundbreaking ceremony, but I spoke too soon. For safety and logistical reasons, the EKHLA community will be invited to a ribbon cutting ceremony when the project is complete and the building is officially open. We anticipate this being in early August. As the project grows from plans to physical buildings, we will happily share more pictures and details.
There have been a few families that have asked for some general details about the after school care program. There will be an EKHLA after school program in the building everyday until 6:00. The program will consist of some generally supervised homework time, outside/gymnasium play time, and relaxing indoor playtime until students are picked up. EKHLA is in beginning discussions of determining if that program will be run in the Dreamland building by a separate entity or by the school itself. Either way, there will be a warm, well structured after school program for all families that need extended day care in our new footprint.
We are thrilled at the response, excitement, and support from our EKHLA families around this next chapter of the school. We are glad to know our families love the education and community their children receive with EKHLA and plan on making the move with us. We do not anticipate any significant changes to the operations of our school in the new location. Hopefully our periodic communication of details as they come together will keep families informed of timelines and programs for fall of 2019. In addition, we have created an email account for families to send specific questions about the new campus. This email account will be monitored by the board and the questions will be answered through a Question and Answer format shared with all our families every couple of weeks. Please feel free to send any questions to Dreamland@ekhla.org.
