|Dear Boulder JCC Community, |
Our highest priority is the safety, health, and wellbeing of our students, community members, and staff. As information has become available, our Senior Leadership Team, Board, and Safety and Security Team have continuously taken into account the community’s health and safety.
As such, starting tomorrow, Friday, March 13 the Boulder JCC building and the Jay and Rose Phillips Early Childhood Center will be closed. All Boulder JCC programs, events, meetings, and functions are cancelled through March 29.
Earlier this evening Boulder Valley School District and St. Vrain Valley School District announced that classes would be cancelled starting tomorrow. Given that many families have children at more than one school, it is important that we all follow suit in order for these closures to have a positive impact on the health of our community.
Sometimes the right thing to do is also the hard thing to do. We are taking this step because we are listening to health experts who say the best way to keep everyone safe is to practice social distancing. We want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
We are so grateful to be in community with all of you. This is an unprecedented situation for us, and we are committed to doing whatever we can to remain engaged with you and your family during this time.
We pride ourselves on being a safe and welcoming place for people of all ages and backgrounds to gather, connect, exchange ideas, learn, and grow together. At all times, and especially during stressful times, we believe that there is strength in community and in uplifting all communities. We remain committed to open and honest conversation and being a welcoming place for all. Let’s remember to continue to treat each other with kindness, dignity, and respect.
Our team is hard at work organizing creative solutions to ensure that we continue to engage with you and offer resources, activities, learnings, and more that can be attended virtually. If you are registered for an upcoming program or event during this time, we will be in touch with you soon.
If you don’t already, now is a good time to follow us on Facebookand/or Instagram as we will be posting about these upcoming opportunities and live streaming events. In addition, for up-to-date information, please refer to our Coronavirus (COVID-19) Preparedness at the Boulder JCC webpage.
We so appreciate each of you. We are in this community together.
