-posted by chicago pop

A few resources for school age children that we've been asked to publicize, in the increasingly likely event of next week's anticipated teacher's strike (beginning September 10):

And this, from the Chicago JCC:

Dear JCC Families,

The prospect of a strike in Chicago Public Schools is a frustrating situation for teachers, administration, and most importantly, the families and children impacted by the possibility of no school. We would like you to know that JCC Chicago will be able to meet your child care needs with engaging safe and fun day long activities, should a strike go into effect.

JCC will offer special programming at Bernard Horwich JCC, Florence Heller JCC, and Hyde Park JCC.  Programming will run from 8:00am to 3:30pm.  If you need to extend your child’s day, late care will be available from 3:30-6:00pm.  While engaged in programming, children will travel to Mayer Kaplan JCC to participate in daily specialty curriculum including art, sports, swimming, and other educational experiences.

Program costs will be $50/day (8:00am-3:30pm) and late care will be an additional $15/day (3:30-6:00pm).  For students enrolled in JCC AfterSchool, there will be no additional charge for late care.   Services will remain in effect until school is back in session; however, JCC will be closed on September 17 and 18.

We will open online registration for Monday through Wednesday .  Advance registration is recommended and appreciated as space may be limited. Should the strike not go into effect, your registration fees can be applied to other JCC programs or will be refunded.

For further information, please contact us at any time.
