(April 2, 2020) WVCA Families: As our world and community face unprecedented challenges, Wyoming Valley Children’s Association is committed to best serving our area’s children and families. While our school will remain closed until the government stay at home orders and Department of Education guidance change, we are still actively working on behalf of our families.
In keeping with our mission, WVCA has chosen to not charge families tuition from March 13, 2020 onward. Tuition will resume being billed once school has reopened. If a family has already paid tuition past March 13, 2020 – then a credit will be issued for when the school reopens, WVCA’s Summer Session or next school year. For questions regarding individual student situations and credit refunds, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Adjusted tuition invoices or credit statements will be mailed to all families at the beginning of next week.
WVCA has also created dedicated website pages to connect families with community resources and at-home speech, physical and occupational activities. The links can be found below:

Additionally, our classroom teachers will be reaching out to parents regarding signing up for ClassDojo. WVCA staff will virtually communicate with parents through this interactive, online classroom management tool during the ongoing closure. Please look out for communications from your child’s teacher regarding sign-up information.
Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time. We will continue to communicate changes and school re-opening information as soon as it becomes available. If you have any questions, you can reach me via email at email@example.com. Sending our thoughts to all those affected by this evolving health crisis. Please stay safe and healthy.
