I write this afternoon with an update. At 3:00 p.m. today, we received a message from our local board of health requiring us to be closed next week. Jeff Kennedy (our local health inspector) wrote:
The Board of Health held an emergency meeting on March 13, 2020 at 2:30 pm. In light of the school district's move to close the school system for the period of time from March 16 - March 30, 2020, the Board of Health voted to facilitate social distancing by requiring the closure of other venues where large populations of children gather. You are one of those venues.
This means we will not be in session starting on Monday, March 16th and will not return until April 6th. We ask that any families who were not able to take home their child's books and other personal belongings today, to please come on Monday to pick those up.
Personnel will be here on Monday to lend a hand between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
