Families,

We understand there are many questions and uncertainties given the current circumstances related to COVID-19. The following statement we hope will address some of the more frequently asked questions.

Our schools will be remaining open unless otherwise mandated by our State representatives or barring new developments in the situation at hand. We understand this may be a controversial decision however we believe remaining open is important to families not in a position to stay at home still have care provided to them. Whether this be to protect loved ones who could more easily be compromised by the virus, or to try and maintain a sense of normalcy for their children to being unable to take time off from work, all reasons are important to us.

As of this moment we are asking that all of our families adhere to our school policy and pay tuition in full. This is to ensure that we are able to pay all of our staff and cover all overhead costs. There are of course extenuating circumstances that we will take into account after the fact.

We are attempting to refrain from having outside contact as much as possible while still trying to maintain a sense of normalcy for our students. Prompt pick up and drop off without lingering and avoiding coming in contact with multiple surfaces is an important step that we have asked all our families to adhere to. Children will also no longer be leaving the premises to avoid potential exposure from external sources.

We also ask that families adhere to our sick policy and stay at home at any sign of illness and keep your child/children home for 24 hours after signs have dissipated.

We assure you when we have any relevant information for our families regarding potential closings or updates from State representatives we will be informing our families immediately.

Working together and staying informed and abreast of the situation will ensure we get through this safely. Thank you for your understanding and may your families stay healthy and safe.
