ELO-P and our Before / Afterschool Care Program
Recently, California has added a requirement that schools make available to students the opportunity to be at school for at least (9) hours per day, as well as provide opportunities to be at school during extended breaks. This requirement will be known as the ‘Expanded Learning Opportunity Program, or ELO-P’. While the new mandate is now in place, the funding received is based on school size, so for our school the funding provided is somewhat limited.
Beginning in 2023, we will be using our ELO-P funding to provide FREE child care within our Before/Afterschool Program and our MMCA Summer Camp Program for students that are eligible. For students that are not eligible, we will continue to provide these services on a paid fee basis.
Who will be eligible for free enrollment in our Before/Afterschool and Summer Camp programs?
Student Eligibility for free ELO-P based Enrollment in the MMCA Before/After School Care Program and/or free ELO-P based Enrollment in MMCA’s Summer Camp Program:
Elementary-aged students enrolled in MMCA.
Students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. Applications for free/reduced meals can be found HERE.
Students classified as Foster Youth.
Students experiencing homelessness.
If you have any questions about ELO-P based eligibility for free enrollment within these programs, please contact Mr. Boothby at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions about our Before/After School Care program, please contact program director Ray Baldonade at email@example.com.
Attendance Matters / Truancy Letters
Heads up: If your child(ren) has more than 3 days of unexcused absences or unexcused tardies, then you will receive a truancy letter from us in the coming week. The County is now requiring us to send these letters out (just like all schools used to pre COVID-19).
It is crucial to try to have your students at school everyday to help them stay on track with their academic success. Poor attendance can cause too much loss of learning in class. This will ultimately impact your student’s academic achievements and MMCA’s finances that fund our academic and extracurricular programs. We understand that some absences are unavoidable. If it is necessary for your student to miss three or more days of school, you are welcome to request an Independent Study through our office or by emailing Mrs. Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Heads up: Notice of Immunizations Needed letters went home last week. Please send us updated immunization records if you received this letter. California Health and Safety Code Section 120375 and California Code of Regulations Section 6075 requires all child care facilities and schools to review students’ immunization records and report annually on their immunization status of students. If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Johnson at email@example.com.
