Dear Ready Set Connect families:
As you have no doubt heard, Governor Sununu recently mandated remote learning to continue throughout the remainder of the school year. At Ready Set Connect we have been following the Governor’s emergency plans since the pandemic reached New Hampshire. We will continue to look to the state for guidance as they begin to explore and implement phases of opening businesses. Ready Set Connect will likely be following the guidance as it pertains to opening child care centers (UPDATE and CLARIFICATION: we’d be looking at broad child care opening, not just centers currently serving essential personnel).
It is our intention to get our centers back online as soon as possible and with the endorsement of plans laid out by the state health authorities. We know how challenging it has been to be without our center services and I want to assure you it is my intention reopen as soon as we can.
As it stands our centers will remain closed until May 4. We hope to have firmer guidance from the state on reopening measures prior to then and we will relay that information to you as soon as we have a plan in place. When we do reopen, all of our centers will have been thoroughly cleaned by a commercial vendor. We will also provide you with updated illness prevention protocols and practices that we have developed to ensure a safe and healthy center environment.
If you haven’t already, please consider reaching out to your BCBA to talk about telehealth services; to date over 25 families have used telehealth to communicate with their BCBAs and we have had some great results. You can find more information about telehealth and BCBA contact information here.
