Martin Luther King Jr. Day
There will be NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 21st in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. If you are looking for ways to commemorate this day there is a Peace Walk scheduled at 11:30am at the MLK, Jr. Blvd & 5th Avenue (across from Safeway), Yakima. The March begins promptly at 12:00pm and will end at the Yakima Convention Center.
Grace of Christ Preschool follows the Yakima School District (YSD) in the event of weather realted closures or delays. If there is a 2-hr delay for the YSD our preschool will start 1-hour late. If you live in a different district, please use your best judgement and pick the safest time to arrive. As on regular school days, please call the school if you are going to be late or absent.
Join us for a fun night in support of our preschool. If you enjoy wine/cocktails, auctions, great food, wonderful company, getting dolled up and socializing with adults, or if you just value supporting the great Early Childhood Education offered here at Grace of Christ Preschool... this event is for YOU! Please RSVP today by clicking here and stop by the Church Office to purchase your tickets or just RSVP and have your ticket cost added to your auction invoice.

Should I keep my child home from school?
Parents often ask when children should be kept home from school. Here are some guide-lines we feel are appropriate reasons to keep a child home from school.
- - A fever in the last 24 hours. Even if child is given medication and reduces the temperature they should remain home until their temperature is normal WITHOUT medication.
- - A rash that is associated with fever.
- - Red throat or earache.
- - A cough bad enough that you wouldn't want your well child around a person coughing like this.
- - A persistent, thick, pussy, goopy, runny nose.
- - Vomiting and/or diarrhea within prior 12 hours.
- - A child that is acting ill.
- - Existence of a communicable disease.
- - Children can return to school after specific illnesses if they meet the following criteria:
- - Strep throat: Child has been on antibiotics for 24 hours, has no fever, and feels OK and doctor’s recommendation.
- - Conjunctivitis (pink eye): If the child has been treated for 24 hours and doctor’s recommendation.
- - Scabies and lice: If the child has been treated and there are no live lice and doctor’s recommendation.
Remember, if you wouldn't want your “Healthy, Well-Child” around a child that is showing signs of illness like your child is, keep them home! We want to keep everyone healthy - including our staff!
Attendance is Important!
We love to see everyone here everyday but we know that is not always possible. We appreciate you keeping your sick children home when necessary. However, we want to hear from you when they won’t be here. Each day the children, along with their teacher, pray for the children that are missing. Also, each day is full of projects and missing just one day makes a difference! Because of our time restrictions, we cannot help children make up the things they have missed. So please be sure and call your child’s teacher when they will be missing from class. Thank you!
