Update on Summer Camps

We are happy to let you know that our programs - including Summer Camp - are now open for ALL families! Governor Abbott's May 18 update lifted the restriction that only allowed us to serve essential workers and we can't wait to welcome all our families to camp this summer!

Be assured that we will keep SAFETY as our number one priority (followed closely by FUN!). We are committed to not just following all of the guidelines mandated by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, but to going above and beyond in keeping our campers and staff safe. Based on HHS and CDC guidance, we are taking careful measures to prevent viral transmission, including:

  • Screening procedures upon arrival
  • Modified drop-off and pick-up procedures
  • Social distancing strategies
  • Intensified cleaning and disinfection


We are ready to serve families who want or need camp/childcare this summer. Summer Camp registration is ongoing on our website and will close the Wednesday before each camp start date.

The most recent order from Governor Greg Abbott, GA-14, allows childcare providers to continue operating as a service to parents who are essential workers. We're grateful to do our part to support the community. However, our state licensing officials (Texas Dept. of Health and Human Services) have advised us that we are now required to have additional paperwork on file for all families who are using childcare services.

In order to continue using childcare services, parents will be required to verify their essential service employee status, effective immediately. Each family must complete form 7265 (English version or Spanish version) and email or bring it to the school. Thank you for your cooperation.

Note, not all SSH locations are open. Please call your location for the latest status.

Dear Parents,

The health of our students, their families, and our staff is of utmost importance to us. We are monitoring the news of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout the U.S. and especially in the communities where our schools are located. Spanish Schoolhouse will follow all applicable local, state, and federal requirements for childcare facilities, including enhanced cleaning and safety/screening protocols (see below).

Effective 3/16/2020, the guidelines from Texas Health and Human Services are as follows:

  • Prohibit any person except the following from accessing an operation: operation staff; persons with legal authority to enter, including law enforcement officers, HHSC Child Care Licensing staff, and Department of Family and Protective Services staff; professionals providing services to children; children enrolled at the operation; and parents or legal guardians who have children enrolled and present at the operation.

  • Require pickup and drop-off of children outside of the operation, unless its determined that there is a legitimate need for the parent to enter an operation.

  • Before allowing entry into the operation, screen all individuals listed above, including taking the temperature of each person upon arrival at the operation each day, and deny entry to any person who meets any of the following criteria:
    1. A temperature of 100.4°F or above;
    2. Signs or symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as a cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, and low-grade fever;
    3. In the previous 14 days has had contact with someone with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19; is under investigation for COVID-19; or is ill with a respiratory illness; or
    4. In the previous 14 days has travelled internationally to countries with widespread, sustained community transmission. For updated information on affected countries, visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/travelers/index.html.

  • Ensure that each child is provided individual meals and snacks. Do not serve family style meals.

*Note: We will not be able to offer tours to prospective parents at this time due to the current regulations.

We thank you for your support in helping us to comply with all health and safety regulations as we provide childcare services for those who must work during this time. We look forward to the day when we see all of our students' smiling faces in person once again! Stay well!

Con cariño,

Spanish Schoolhouse
