This Week at a Glance



The Paid Parking lot will be shut down except for the horseshoe area as of Monday, November 26th. Please continue to drop off/pick up in the horseshoe area. MetroKids will have two designated spots with 15-minute parking to help ensure space for pick up/drop off. Please communicate early if you are having any difficulty finding space. Thanks in advance for being flexible as First Covenant Church heads into construction on a very exciting affordable housing project!

MetroKids follows the Minneapolis Public School Policy on Weather-related school closing. This means, when the MPS school closes for weather related reasons, MetroKids will be closed as well. For more information visit; http://www.mpls.k12.mn.us/school_closing

As the weather cools, we are reminded our temperatures will continue to drop! Please make sure your children are outfitted with warm hats, mittens and clothing for each day. This allows us to maximize our time outside to run, play and learn.

If your child becomes ill at the center, staff will call for your child to be picked up. We ask that parents/guardians arrive within 1 hour of notification. Children must be symptom free without the use of medication for 24 hours before returning. For the purpose of reducing the spread of illness to others, 24 hours includes a full day home before returning.
Ex. If called for pick-up on Monday, the earliest your child may return is Wednesday, symptom free without the use of medication.
