Location #1: Minneapolis

100 East 22nd St.
Minneapolis, MN 55404

Monday, 08/05/2019 to Friday, 08/16/2019
9:00 am to 3:00 pm

The registration fee is $50 per child if you sign up by July 15. After that deadline, the fee rises to $100. Please make checks payable to NFBMN and put “BELL Academy” in the memo line. We do not want any student to miss out due to financial need. If the registration presents a barrier to attendance, please reach out to the coordinator for information about available financial assistance.

All snacks and lunches are provided. If your child has food allergies or other dietary restrictions, please alert the coordinator so arrangements can be made ahead of time. We may not be able to accommodate all dietary needs, and may ask families to provide lunch and snacks under certain circumstances.

While we ask that families attempt to make arrangements for their child to attend The BELL Academy, transportation will be provided to participants on an as-needed basis. If transportation presents a barrier to attendance, please contact the coordinator for further information.

Consistent attendance is vital to ensure that your child gets the most out of the BELL Academy. If your child will be absent due to illness, please contact the coordinator at the phone number provided.

The program will begin promptly at 9:00 am each day. We ask that the children be dropped off no earlier than 8:45, and no later than 9:00. Late arrivals can make transitions difficult for your child and the other children. We appreciate your cooperation. Pickup each day is between 3:00 and 3:15. For every ten minutes after that, a $10 late fee will be charged.

We ask that all participants be toilet trained. If there are medical considerations which have impacted this process for your child, please contact the coordinator prior to the start of the program.
