Information for Summer 2017

 

 

Dear Parent / Guardian,

 

The Sackets Harbor Summer Recreation program welcomes children who have completed Kindergarten up to children who have completed the 6th grade.  There is a $25 registration fee for each child.  The program will be headquartered in the Multi-Purpose Room at Sackets Harbor Central School and will run from Wednesday, July 5th through Friday, August 11th every weekday from 9:00 - 3:00.

 

Children who attend the program should bring a backpack to hold all personal items, including a water bottle and sunscreen.  All items should be labeled with the child’s name. Children must bring their own bag lunches and a snack.  However, on Mondays and Wednesdays lunch and snack are provided free of charge for all Summer Rec students by Summer Food Program through the CAPC.

 

Cell phones and other electronic devices are not permitted at Summer Rec. The ONLY exception is that electronics are allowed for use on the bus on field trip Fridays. The recreation program staff is not responsible for any lost or damaged personal belongings.

 

All of the Summer Rec kids and staff go to Westcott Beach on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, weather permitting. Children are allowed to swim in shallow (no more than “chest deep” water).  Life jackets, goggles and swim toys are not permitted by the park.

 

On Wednesday afternoons, we go to Saturdays, Sundaes, & More for ice cream.  The ice cream costs $1 which will be collected by a staff member on Wednesday mornings.   The 1st and 2nd grade students will have story and craft time every Wednesday afternoon at the Hay Memorial Library.  The Library may also provide educational events to 3rd – 7th grade throughout the summer.

 

Fridays are field trip days; ONLY students who have already signed up for field trips at the Village Office are allowed to attend Summer Rec on field trip Fridays (7/14, 7/21, 7/28, 8/4). Field trip dates and fees are listed on the calendar on the back of this letter.  

 

ALL field trip fees must be paid to the Village of Sackets Harbor in at the time of registration.       

 

Registration forms can be picked up at the Sackets Harbor Village office or at www.sacketsharbor-ny.gov

ALL registration forms and payment must be turned in to the Village Office by Thursday June 29th.  

Please note: you must submit a copy of your child’s immunization records with your registration forms and payment.  

 

If you have any other questions, you may call me at 315-486-3483.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jill VanOcker

Program Director
