We are so thankful that the school year is looking more and more normal with each passing month. Nothing is better than being surrounded by our classmates, teachers and parents on campus! I think none of us with ever take that for granted again. Fall has arrived at Penguin Patch and we have been working hard to make sure everyone is able to host a shop.  While many are on campus and moving forward, others are still dealing with obstacles, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have any fun! Here is a list of of common obstacles your school may be facing, but most can be overcome easily.


Q: Are there any fees if we have to cancel our shop?

A: Fees will be waived for 2021 Holiday Shop Season if unable to hold due to Covid.

Q:Can we change our dates to accommodate Covid restrictions ?

A: You can alter your dates at any time by calling our office.

Q: What if I can’t host the shop inside of the building?

A: In warm weather states many schools are able to host it outside in the courtyard or entryway, or even on the playground.

Q: Is there an online holiday shop option?

A: Not at this time. The best part about a holiday shop is the experience and students benefit much more from an on campus shop.

Q: What if no volunteers are allowed on campus due to Covid?

A: You are not alone! Several of our schools have chosen to use alternatives to traditional volunteers. This has included older students, Librarians, Student Teachers, Bus drivers, and more happy helpers who are already on campus.

Q: What safety precautions can we take during the shop?

A: We will provide complimentary gloves and masks if requested. Just let us know how we can help you!
