4.21.20 Update Regarding the CCC’s School Closure & Plans to Move Forward

To the CCC Community:

We are writing to update you about the CCC closure and our plans going forward.

In our last update, we shared our decision to remain closed until May 1. As you know, the county Safer-at-Home order has been extended until May 15, and we will remain closed until at least that date.

However, our expectation is that when the current government restrictions are relaxed or lifted, we will re-open, immediately for teachers and staff to make the necessary preparations, and one week later for children to resume attending.

We expect that at least initially, there will be rules regarding class size, as well as stringent regulations enforcing social distancing, frequent hand-washing, masks, and temperature checks, among others. We will know the details of these rules, and their impact on the terms of our operation when the stay-home order is relaxed or lifted, and the following week will be used to adapt the center to conform to these rules, and to communicate the changes they may necessitate with CCC families. We are grateful to Susan and her team for the work they have done to prepare for these changes, and we know that they will ensure a warm welcome to our returning children and families, while keeping the health and safety of our entire community as their top priority.

You will also be receiving a short survey from the CCC regarding your childcare needs when the center reopens. Please fill this out to help with our planning.

As always, we continue to evaluate the evolving situation, and we will update you as events warrant.

We hope that you are staying healthy, and we look forward to being able to welcome our families and teachers back to CCC as soon as we can do so safely!
