Pierce Hall at the Children’s Place January 2012
Happy New Year!
The Board of Directors conducted a review of the inclement weather closing policy.
The approved policy is as follows:
During inclement weather, the Children’s Place will follow the Albany City School District
regarding closures and delays.
In the event that the ACSD closes, the center will close as well.
In the event that the ACSD delays opening, the center will also delay. When the center delays
opening, breakfast will NOT be provided. Please make sure that children receive breakfast at home.
In the event of an early dismissal, parents will be contacted by phone.
Please ensure that the center has an up-to-date phone number where you can be reached.
Closures and delays will be announced on local tv and radio stations
and our website at empireplazakids.org.
We are listed as “Children’s Place at the Plaza”

We had a lot of success with our recent
fundraisers! We raised $1100 from the Equal
Exchange event that will be designated to the
purchase of curriculum materials for the
classrooms. We also earned over $500 in books
and resources from the Scholastic Book Fair.
Your support of these events provides teachers
with new materials and resources that will be used
enrich your child’s care and education.
There is a change to make to the 2012 holiday list
you recently received. Since the printing of that
holiday schedule, the state has designated
Lincoln’s Birthday as a float holiday. Therefore,
we will be open on Monday, February 13.
