With word that schools won’t be opening on time, the Grist Mill is taking a number of steps to support students and families. Starting immediately, and until the labour dispute is over, the student admission rate will drop by half to only $2.50 and the site will be providing extra kid-friendly activity on site between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. each weekday. Activities will vary each day (and through the day) but could include arts and crafts, games, story-time, heritage chores and more.
For parents bringing more than their own children, please ensure you have adequate adult supervision for the kids you bring (no more than five kids per adult, please). For larger groups, the site would appreciate as much advanced notice as you can provide to ensure there is adequate supplies and staff. Please note that this is not a drop-off opportunity; parents are expected to stay with their children they bring.
Also, if parents have any responsible teenagers they would like to get out of the house, the Grist Mill is always looking for volunteers to help both with these activities as well as many other things on site. Please have them get in touch with as soon as possible at 250-499-2888.
