Dear Parents and Guardians;
BLAST would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our program! Whether you are a returning family or new to Blast we would like to thank you for your patience over these past months as we restructured our programming to meet Alberta Health Standards. Previously BLAST released our Re-Entry Plan, which can be found below. BLAST is adapting to the regular changes that are occurring in our re-opening guidelines and any changes that have occurred following the release of our Re-Entry Plan will be updated in that document.
Over the past couple weeks, BLAST has met with the principals at our program schools. On the Parent Portal we have listed any news, updates or information that applies to your child’s school. This includes specific requests that individual principals have made of us.
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this information please do not hesitate to contact us at your earliest convenience.
Sincerely, Lesley Braden Executive Director

It’s a BLAST Re-Entry Plan
At It’s a Blast we pride ourselves on being the premier out of school care program in Lethbridge. A great deal of time and effort goes into our daily programming to ensure that each child’s experience with Blast is individual and fun. Unfortunately, with the current Covid-19 pandemic, we, as many others, have seen some challenges in providing daily programming to our Blast families.
Blast is very excited to announce our re-opening for September 1, 2020. We regularly review Alberta Health recommendations and have implemented new cleaning protocols, along with our Health and Safety Policies. We are regularly monitoring the recommendations set forth by Alberta Health and continue to update our programming as necessary. Program training will be taking place for all staff the week of August 24-31, 2020, to ensure that staff are provided with the same information and that they all have a clear understanding of expectations.
As we prepare for our relaunch, below is a detailed list of our new plans to ensure the cleanliness of our sites as well as a safe return for families and staff.
All staff will be aware of this policy. Blast admin staff will be responsible for enforcing this policy.
Blast recognizes the need for fluent changes to operations, dependent on the pandemic situation. Blast will ensure that all employees, families, Alberta Licensing and Schools will be kept privy to these changes should/when they occur.
