Last week, Lillie B. Haynes Elementary School sent an email to parents announcing it would be unable to offer after school activities until the spring, because of East Lyme Board of Education policies regarding safety concerns that all outside vendors be fingerprinted.
On Friday, however, School Principal David Miko sent a second email revising that suspension. With the support of School Superintendent James Lombardo, Miko announced that after-school activities would now be available beginning on February 4.
"We will provide proper supervision of all of these wonderful programs to ensure that children are learning from a safe and enjoyable experience," Miko wrote. "We consider these activities highly enriching as they provide students with opportunities that they might not experience during the typical school day."
If you want to sign your kids up for these programs, the deadline to register has been extended to January 29.
