Every week we review the COVID-19 status of our community. Since there has been a decline in COVID-19 cases and vaccinations are underway; we have decided to reopen for in-person teaching on Monday, February 22, 2021. We will still offer a virtual option to families who are not ready to return to the centers.

Due to the constantly changing public health conditions and safety guidelines beyond our control, we have made the decision to delay opening for in-person service. On February 3, 2021, we will be review the health information for our community and make a decision about opening on February 20, 2021.  

We will be effectively closing on Thursday, November 19, 2020 and re-opening on January 20, 2021. Our number one priority is to keep our families and staff safe and to do our very best to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19 within our communities.

Every week we review the COVID status of our community. Initially the decision was made to start in-person learning with restrictions on October 12, 2020, but with this new status we are going to revisit the Smart Restart plans and make the decision about in-person learning.

Be assured, we have been working diligently updating and revising our Smart Restart Plan. Given the extensive information needed to plan as COVID-19 as issues emerge, the comprehensive Smart Restart Plan will be released to families and staff by August 24, 2020.
