GAP

Dear GAP families,

As you may have heard, starting April 5th all students who are attending school in person will be at school 5 days per week. (Fridays will no longer be a remote learning day.) With this change it may be necessary for you to change the care your child receives with GAP. If you will need GAP childcare 5 days a week, please inform the GAP staff at the site your child attends as soon as possible. 

This change to 5 days per week for in-person school also means starting after April 5th, we will no longer have our Friday larger group sessions. Other COVID-related protocols remain in place to ensure the safety and well-being of the children.

These include:

  • Children attend GAP at normal times.

  • Masks guidelines per the current Panhandle Health Mandate continue to be followed.

  • Scheduled cleaning occurs in the GAP classrooms during the school day at appropriate times.

  • Handwashing is integrated throughout the day.

  • Hand sanitizer is available throughout the school building and within the GAP classrooms.

  • Social distancing will be implemented when possible and reasonable.

  • We are limiting the use of shared supplies.

  • GAP will coordinate with other local agencies such as Panhandle Health and other state authorities overseeing childcare facilities.

  • Parents will monitor their students' health, ensuring students stay home if they are sick or showing symptoms.

GAP is now taking online payments! 

If you have already established a Skyward Family Access password, making payments to your GAP student’s account is fast, easy, and convenient.

Payments are due by the 10th of each month.  You can access the online payment system conveniently via computer, or mobile device at https://pfsd.revtrak.net

This real time payment option makes paying for your student’s GAP account worry free, and the auto replenish option allows for recurring payments that save you time.  

If you have any problems with your password or further questions, please contact your student’s school secretary.
