Dear L.I.F.E. Families,

As we begin rolling out the 2023 L.I.F.E. Summer D.T.S. process, I felt it important to share that we are preparing once again for a high-demand need from our community in the East Valley wishing to enroll their loved one in a summer program.

It is important to me that we can offer programming to as many families in need as possible.  It is also important to me to be able to provide this program for families, regardless of their enrollment in other L.I.F.E programs. Every child deserves the opportunity to experience our summer program.

To ensure we can offer this program to as many children as possible, we will only be offering a three-day or two-day option. Precisely a Monday/Wednesday/Friday spot or a Tuesday/Thursday spot.    If you need additional support outside of these days, we are happy to try and support you through community services.

Regardless of which spot you are offered, you can be assured your loved one will be able to experience all our programming support.   We try every summer to create programming that best supports the whole child and their peers, socially, emotionally, and cognitively. We will do the same this summer.

I look forward to another opportunity to serve our community this summer! Be well and stay safe.
