Dear Awesome Kids Families,

Oh my, what an interesting time we are living in! Whenever I feel myself starting to fall into fear and anxiety I stop…, breathe…, and remember my favorite promise from God. Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding. Acknowledge him in all your ways, and help make your paths straight.”

Truly, I can’t begin to understand the magnitude of what our nation is facing today. Without a doubt however I know, I know that Jesus is right here with us and that, friends, gives me peace and I hope it does you as well. This is my prayer for you.

At this moment I am expecting to resume preschool as normal on Tuesday, March 24. However, If Blue Valley extends their Spring Break, Awesome Kids Preschool will as well. At the heart of every decision will be the underlying motivation of safety and care for your children, families and the staff of the preschool.

I am diligently monitoring the situation around us, as is our church leadership team. We are particularly paying attention to the communication being given to us from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), Johnson County Health Department (JCHD), and Blue Valley School District (BV).

Should we need to close the school for a longer period of time, please watch for communication from AKP via our website and email. Stay tuned. Please know we are caring for our preschool staff, so the March tuition will not be refunded. See our Parent’s Handbook, page 8, and 14. (

Also know that I will be communicating with you as much as I can and as soon as I can. My promise to you is to pray for you daily, actually multiple times a day. I will provide links to websites loaded with fun activities to do at home with your littles (should it be necessary). I understand how being at home with little ones can be a challenge. It can provide the sweet gift of time to build mountains of memories. Yes. Parents, the days are long, but the years so very, very short.
