I want to wish all of our families a Very Happy Valentine’s Day! Enjoy your loved ones each and every day. Please check your child’s classroom for any party information. Thank you and have a great month! I also want to send out a reminder that you can sign up to receive Pleasant Park text messages! This is a great way to receive notifications about any important news from Pleasant Park. We encourage everyone to sign up to receive these messages. Please see below for further instructions.

CALENDAR OF EVENTS

FEB. 15-PPCDC CLOSED FOR PRESIDENT’S DAY

EMERGENCY CLOSINGS

Please remember that Pleasant Park may close if Ball/Chatham schools close because of severe weather. In addition, if the Ball/Chatham Schools are already scheduled to be closed, for example, Thanksgiving break or Christmas Break, and the weather is severe, Pleasant Park may have to close as well. In all cases of severe weather, you will always have to check News Channel 20 or the News Channel 20 Website for possible closings. Also, you can receive a text message if you have signed up to receive them. If you have not already signed up, please do so as soon as possible. If in doubt, you may always call the center to double check. We can relay information by texting through our Procare software program, but we cannot access this program when we are not at Pleasant Park. So we cannot contact you from our homes in case of emergency closings. In addition, that program only allows us to send one text message to one number. That is why you must sign up through REMIND 101.

STAY INFORMED

THERE ARE MULTIPLE WAYS TO GET PLEASANT PARK INFORMATION. WE USE THE FOLLOWING WAYS TO NOTIFY PARENTS IF WE ARE CLOSED. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO SIGN UP FOR THESE SERVICES.

  1. YOU MAY SIGN UP TO RECEIVE TEXT MESSAGES THROUGH A SERVICE CALLED REMIND101. TEXT @Pleasantpar to 217-718-3545.
  2. CHECK NEWS CHANNEL 20 FOR SCHOOL CLOSINGS
  3. CHECK NEWS CHANNEL 20 WEBSITE AND LOOK UNDER SCHOOL CLOSINGS.
