A Message from our CEO:

(Update on reopening date)

I wish I could say that all will be back to normal soon – but the new norm is taking things day by day.  We are going to remain closed through the month of June – primarily because we cannot meet the social distancing requirements with our transportation and day programs.

During our closure we have remained busy.  We have completed all of our state required staff training, completed virtual training for our Adult Basic Education program, purged all of our old files, and have been working on the upkeep of our buildings and grounds.

We hope to reopen in July, but this is dependent upon our ability to meet all CDC and state guidelines.  We will keep our website and FACEBOOK page updated with our plans.

Stay healthy and safe!

Mary Jo Thorn, CEO
