Registration: Please email Lisa Santa Cruz at if you are interested in enrolling your child in the summer program. Space is limited, and students will be enrolled first come, first served. Students must be enrolled at Perkins K-8 school and be in 3rd – 8th grade to participate. Registration deadline is June 14, 2021.

Social Distancing: Perkins has completed a reopening safety checklist, which includes handwashing stations and sanitizer, posted signage throughout campus detailing hygiene practices for students and staff, and adequate ventilation in classrooms. Face masks will be required for students and staff, handwashing will be reinforced regularly, and there will be limited sharing of supplies. Arrival and departure times will be managed by BLCI staff to allow for appropriate physical distancing. Students and staff will be asked to self-screen for symptoms before coming to school and will be required to notify BLCI if they have symptoms or have tested positive for COVID-19.
