COVID-19 Update

Following Governor Steve Sisolak’s announcement this evening for Stay Home For Nevada, I want to inform you that Shenker Academy will be closed effective tomorrow 3/18/2020 until further notice.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can just imagine that each family and employee have at least three questions for us which makes it difficult to answer each one individually. We will try to answer some of the frequent questions we received and I hope this will clarify the situation for now.

1. What will Shenker Academy do about the tuition?
As you know, Shenker Academy charges AFTER attendance (i.e., your account is being charged on 3/20/20 for the enrolled period between 3/5/20-3/19/20). Therefore, you will receive a final statement today for the enrolled time between 3/5/20-3/19/20. This balance is due on 3/20/20 and you will be billed on SMARTCARE. All accounts are on hold right after you pay your balance on 3/20/20.

2. When will Shenker Academy resume its operation?
Shenker Academy will be closed until further notice. We will revise our decision and notify you through this newsletter by 3/27/2020 and periodically afterward. Childcare and preschools are considered essential institutions and thus, Shenker Academy is at liberty to decide to resume operation prior to or post the 30 days closure.

3. Would I have a spot for my child when school resumes? Would I need to pay registration fees?
All Shenker Academy students are granted a spot when school resumes. You will need to notify the school two days prior to your return day so we can be prepared. You will not need to pay registration fees again.

4. Is my spot reserved for the next school year?
As long as you completed your registration forms, paid your $125.00 registration fee, and your account is in good standing, your spot for the 2020-2021 school year is reserved.

5. Would Shenker Academy accept new students?
Shenker Academy receives calls to enroll students temporarily and permanently. We do not intend to enroll students temporarily. However, we will continue the enrollment of new students if we have availability according to our next year’s rosters, and only after resuming full operation. We will not have tours during this closure.

6. When can I pick up my child’s belongings/medications?
We are open today 8.00am-4.00pm. We will also open on Monday 3/23/2020 from 10.00 am-12.00 pm. 

7. What happens to the previously ordered lunches?
You will receive a credit back on your Boonli account to be used toward future purchases.

8. Would my child have distance learning? 
Only Kindergarten will have distanced learning at this time.

9. Can the teachers babysit children during this period?
Yes, please email info@shenkeracademy.com for the updated list.

Please stay tuned as we are updating you and our teachers constantly.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Dr. Sharon Knafo
