Disclaimer: Generally, we would provide pre-care for younger grades while we wait for the 2nd release time and then start the official chess hour. The Facility reservations in this particular district have nearly doubled for this semester, so we are restricted to one hour reservations and can no longer provide this pre-care time on campus for younger students.
