Session 3 Clubs & Enrichment Information

ENRICHMENT:

If your child is enrolled in a Session 3 After School ENRICHMENT program, owned and operated by an entity outside of
FHM, any request for enrollment changes or refunds must be handled by the enrichment program, not FHM. Depending
on the size, location, and resources of individual companies, the enrichment programs have responded differently to the
building closures. Please refer to the table below for a list of Enrichment Programs, Continued Learning Plans (if any),
and contact information. Keep in mind that some programs may be closed and not responding to email until able to return
to the office. Thank you! Ms. Jen


Schedules and contact information >

CLUBS: 

If your child is enrolled in a Session 3 After School CLUB, operated by FHM, your child’s club is continuing through
Remote Learning. You should have received a message from the Club Teacher with either the club content, or a link to
the club’s Google Classroom. Please email Jen Levy (JeMLevy@jeffcoschools.us) if you need access to club content.

Important Tips: 

Create a daily schedule for your kids; they will be more successful with structure. Make sure to include:
- Wake-up and breakfast times
- Times to engage in classes 
- Outside and/or physical movement time at least 2-3 times during the “school” day. 30 minutes for each time are recommended. Walking, biking, running, playing an outside game (that allows for social distancing), etc. Check out these ideas from Ms. Tyler in Fresh Start
- Lunch time.
- Free time (schedule this; otherwise, all time could be free time)
- Dinner

 Optional things to think about including in the schedule:
- A time for chores
- Creative Time - drawing, playing music, building things, etc. Ideally this would not include a device (computer or tablet) since students will be online a lot during this time period. We want kids to engage their brains in different ways.

Social Distancing: This is NOT a Snow Day or a vacation time - It is NOT recommended that kids do “get togethers” like they do during a snow day. Kids should not have sleepovers or visit with their peers during this time.

Families Who Need Child Care

As COVID-19 requires additional demands of our essential workforce to support our health care system, our human services providers, public safety professionals, and other members of our emergency workforce, child care will be a vital piece of Colorado’s response.
