Please note that the digital learning pod is offered in an effort to assist caregivers during this global pandemic. If participation would be considered a risk to your family in any way, we suggest your children stay home. Anyone who has illness symptoms themselves, is living with someone displaying COVID-19 symptoms, or is living with someone with a diagnosis of COVID-19 within the previous 14 days is prohibited from attending. All participants must undergo a contactless medical screening conducted by our staff each day upon arrival in order to be admitted for the day.

Payments are done on a pre-pay basis. There will be no refunds for absences unless due to a documented COVID-related illness. Payments accepted: cash, debit/credit card, Venmo, and Apple Pay. Participants will not be admitted without payment unless previous arrangements have been made.
