Covid School care at the Parks

leave a comment »

School is a lifesaver for a few parents because it’s a safe place for your child to be that is usually free.

The week before Darla started school I realized she wasn’t going to get into the free after school care and I had to hunt. I was so lucky that someone suggested I called Los Angeles City recreation and Parks and talk to Juchelle. she agreed to come in on a Saturday so my daughter could meet her and feel comfortable going with her after school.

5 years later we are still using the parks religiously. (Not the original park because the Humphreys Park in Pacoima is where she got a black eye and they took no accountability for it other than a phone call to me.) I just signed her up for Delano’s Park so that she can be there from 8:00 to 6:00 and do her school work.

She would rather do camp Kaleidoscope at Northridge but that one is $150 a week. So that’s $300 for two weeks and $600 for a month and I just can’t afford that.

But I am so grateful to know that she will be with adults and have food and care provided to her so that I can work without worry.

School from Home

Darla is meeting with her class and teachers via ZOOM.

I am watching from the office. She moves too much and of course, insists on taking the call from my room which is not lovely (at the moment). zoooooom

This is so surreal. We are reinventing education as we go. I am so thankful toΒ  Ms. Walker and Fenton Charter schools.

I might be even more thankful if Darla would stop trying to hold her cats up and have them join class!
