Virtual Kids Cre8 FAQs: Summer 2020

1. How do I know what materials my child will need for their virtual Kids Cre8 club? 

Materials lists are available in the club descriptions in Sawyer. 

2. How will my child join the virtual club? Where are the links?

PS8 teachers who are running clubs will be using Google Hangouts. Outside vendors will use the platform of their choosing. Links to each virtual club will be sent ahead of time.

3. What if I have technical problems?

If you’re having trouble accessing the club via the link/meeting info provided, or any other technical issue, please reach out to the teacher of that club. A list of contact information for each club is available here

4. Can I file an FSA claim for virtual Kids Cre8?

Some parents have asked for additional documentation in order to claim payments for the Kids Cre8 after-school program as expenses that are reimbursable by the IRS Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) for Child and Dependent Care Expenses. The IRS guidelines, as we interpret them, are not entirely clear on whether these payments for after school enrichment qualify as reimbursable expenses. While your email receipt and confirmation contains the information you need to file a claim, neither PS 8 nor the PTA take any responsibility for any claims that the IRS or other tax authorities deem illegitimate. As stated in our Terms and Conditions, any parents making FSA claims shall take full responsibility for the claims.

5. Can you provide me with a receipt so I can file an FSA claim?

The email confirmation/receipt you receive after registering your child contains the information you need to file a claim.
