Wow. Just what i have been saying the entire time.
There are two parts to it. There is the fee for service which every parent is obligated to pay (in theory, whether or not they can afford it). Then there is the keeping of the mosdos which is the obligation of every community member, whether or not you have school aged children.

If you're asking me to continue paying my tuition obligation to satisfy the latter, then you may be asking me for a disproportionate share.

The same argument is made against the sliding scale tuition model.
If you don't care why would you comment?

I can hear this. Yes it can make sense that there should be some changes to the scales.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Any halachic rulings updated due to the fact that now schools are closed for the rest of the year?

why do they think its in their hands to decide? its a halacha shaliah and should be decided by halacha authority

just imagine your child's baby sitter will say "we will make a determination how much you should pay" strange isn't it

I don't think so. They will send you a bill for what they think is right (hopefully with rabbinic guidance). Challenge it if you want.

This letter is in essence saying the same thing as the letter posted by username, yet somehow this letter gives off so much better vibes.

Any updated guidance on playgroups? My friend just told me that his child's playgroup is insisting they got a psak that your obligated to pay in full. But if financially difficult you should call to discuss a payment plan.(not even a discount)

I wonder where and why someone would pasken like that.

They have a written contract or any sort of formal commitment?
