3/13-27/2020: Boys & Girls Club of Portage County will be closed for at least two weeks...

Boys & Girls Club of Portage County at Almond will be closed Friday, March 16th through Friday, March 27th

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

Governor Tony Evers has declared a public health emergency against the transmission of COVID-19 and recommended that public events where 250 people or more are present be canceled.

 

At the Boys & Girls Club we take the safety and security of our youth, families, staff, volunteers, and community as our top priority. As a precautionary measure and recommendation on behalf of our Board of Directors, the state of public health emergency, and following the SPSD closure of school following Spring Break week all Boys & Girls Club of Portage County will be closing Monday, March 16th - Friday, March 27th. This will give the Club an opportunity to sanitize our facilities and follow recommendations regarding social distancing. We will stay in communication with parents/guardians if this closure will continue past these two weeks.

 

Please note as well, that in the event the Stevens Point Area School District closes for an extended time, the Club will also close.

 

During the week of Stevens Point's Spring Break (Monday, March 16-Friday, March 20) we will be offering a free meal service to all children through the age of 18 from 8 AM-12:30 PM. Children may take a grab-n-go breakfast and lunch at the same time, but are not to consume the meals on site and will be asked to leave the building after picking up the meal.

 

Also, summer enrollment will be starting on Monday, March 16th. Families are able to enroll online. More information will be made available to families on Monday, March 16th. Learn more click here.

 

The Boys & Girls Club of Portage County always does what we can to remain open to serve families and youth especially when other options are not available. However,this situation is unique and fluid, the safety of our youth, families, staff volunteers and community, continues to be our top priority.

 

Thank you for your understanding.

 

In Service to Youth,
