"We are so thankful to be a part of a community that rallies together in times of hardship," said Mary Swingle, president and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Minnesota. "We appreciate the round-the-clock work our schools are doing to ensure all students in the district receive meals during the school closures and that they have the tools necessary to successfully participate in distance learning. We know we couldn't provide this childcare service without the strong relationship with our schools."
Boys & Girls Clubs are strictly following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Minnesota Department of Health's guidelines to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all participants. Temperature and respiratory checks are completed upon check-in, programming is administered in groups of 10, social distancing and hand washing are being taught and practiced regularly, and all spaces are sanitized and disinfected constantly by Boys & Girls Club and school staff.
