Parent Resource Letter During COVID-19

Dear BGCSV Parents & Families,

During this unprecedented health crisis, our nation is facing more challenges than ever before, and we understand the implications these have on your family. Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma Valley continues to work tirelessly with our partners, local school districts, health care providers, government officials and other organizations to determine how we can best serve Club youth and families now and in the coming weeks.

Because the safety of young people, our staff and volunteers is always our top priority, Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma Valley will remain CLOSED until further notice.

We will continue to update you with new information as it becomes available. Our hope is to be able to serve a limited number of members after the Shelter in Place (SIP) order has lifted. However, guidelines and precautions shift daily and the schools have currently sent out notices of potential closures until May 1st. We will monitor the situation closely, please stay tuned to our website, social media and emails for updates. If we can open safely, we will!

In the meantime, this provides some helpful information for families, as we all do our part to support one another through this very difficult time.
