From the Principal’s Office:
Dear Evergreen Families,
Although it is hard to believe summer is around the corner, it is time to start making summer camp plans. Evergreen Academy offers summer camp starting the week of June 22nd and running through the week of August 21st. Our camps offer five days of activities from 9:00am – 3:00pm. You can choose to add extended hours from 7:00am – 9:00am and 3:00pm – 6:00pm. We offer a wide range of outdoor activities as well as indoor activities. Our specialty camps are optional programs, operating during regular camp hours 9:00am – 12:00pm, which provide even more choices for unique and exciting adventures. Camp Registration is on a first come first enrolled basis.
With the Spring months upon us, we would also like to remind all families about our sick policy. The purpose of our sick policy is to reduce the spread of illness among children and encourage full recuperation of sick children before they return to school. We depend on parents to assist us in maintaining a safe and healthy environment for all of our children. We ask any sick child to stay home where he/she is most relaxed and comfortable. Children may be sent home if they have any specific symptoms listed below. In addition, a child must be free of all of these specified symptoms for at least 24 hours before he/ she can return to school.
The symptoms are as follows:
- A fever of 100 degrees or more
- Vomiting within the previous 24 hour period
- Diarrhea within the previous 24 hour period
- A heavy nasal discharge indicative of infection
- A constant cough or sore throat
- A skin rash (excluding diaper rash)
- Head Lice
- Symptoms of a communicable disease
Following an illness, a child may return to school once he/she has either been seen by a doctor or it has been determined the illness is not contagious. (A doctor’s clearance may be requested.)

Lunch & Snack Policies
Planning ahead with your young child to prepare the lunch together can be a wonderful activity to share. Older children can be expected to take on this responsibility. Children staying for lunch should bring food and drink that are nutritious. Please do not send soda or candy. With respect to our environment all food should be packed in recyclable containers and drinks in thermoses or reusable containers. We will encourage your child to finish what you send with them and return anything uneaten at the end of the day. The children will not be sharing their lunches.
Snack time is an integral part of our Practical Life curriculum. It is a learning experience that teaches grace and courtesy. Evergreen Academy provides nutritious snacks as part of our regular program.
Nuts and Peanut Butter
Due to the severity of some children’s allergic reaction to peanut butter, we request the parents’ cooperation in creating a “peanut butter and nut free” environment.
