Parent Handbook

2020-2021 Parent Handbook

STATE FORMS

NJ State CC Manuel

A few reminders:  When registering, you may not park your car to save a spot and then leave.  All cars must be occupied at all times.  Also, please be courteous of the other families too.  If a car has forms from multiple families, that will not be allowed.

At this time, the state regulations will only allow 10 students per classroom for NJ daycares and before/after school care programs.  Comet Care will hold 5 classrooms at the Stratton and Harker School.  The Clifford School will have 3 classrooms.  Unfortunately, this will limit the amount of students that will be allowed in the program.  That will only allow 50 students at the Harker School, 50 students at the Stratton School and 30 students at the Clifford School.

UPDATED INFORMATION FOR FALL 2020:  ALL REGISTRATION WILL BE HELD AT THE GENERAL C HARKER SCHOOL (1771 OLDMANS CREEK) PLEASE READ BEFORE FILLING OUT THE FORMS

Comet Care is dedicated to supporting our community to the best of our ability following all state and CDC guidance during this unprecedented time of the Covid-19 pandemic. While the decision for the 2020-2021 school year is still unknown, Comet Care has established a preliminary plan with the most flexibility and versatility possible to adjust to any school district decision. Uncertainty isn’t easy for anyone; we appreciate your continued patience and empathize as we are experiencing the same anxiety regarding the unknown. Please know we anticipate that your decisions and needs may change based on the final decision about the fall schedule.

 

Once Comet Care receives all of your forms and registration fee, you will receive a confirmation letter by email.  You must keep this for your records to verify the date of your registration. Please follow up with a phone call to our office to make sure it was received.  If you do NOT receive an acknowledgement, please call the office to see if the registration was received. The registration fee is non-refundable.

Please keep remember that the Margaret Clifford fills up quickly.  The Walter Hill students will be bused from the Harker school in the AM.  The afternoon session the students will be transferred to the Harker school.  Spots fill up quickly for the Walter Hill school too.
