Coronavirus Update: Passion & Potential for 2019-2020 School Year
In this extraordinary time, Adopt A Class would like to thank each of you for being a dedicated partner to our program and say that we cannot truly express how much we appreciate your patience and flexibility. Now more than ever, Adopt A Class calls on your support and engagement to continue to spark passion and potential for the students who need it most in Greater Cincinnati. While Adopt A Class does not know what the rest of the school year will bring, we do know that we remain firm in our commitment to serve students in ways that spark curiosity, inspiration, and change.
Please know that during this time, Adopt A Class will continue to improve our program, create more fantastic educational activities, and do our best to bring a joy and connection to our community in inventive ways. Preparation for an exciting new school year is already underway. We are so grateful to have you in the classroom this year, next year, and for many years to come!
The health and safety of our students and volunteers is of upmost importance to us. For that reason, the Adopt A Class program is inactive in our Ohio & Kentucky schools for the time being- as they have closed their doors for 3 weeks and 2 weeks, respectively. As we see it, there are four possible scenarios for our program moving forward for the rest of the school year:
1. Schools are closed for the remainder of the school year. Therefore, Adopt A Class teams will not be able to visit for the remainder of the school year.
2. Schools are reopened for the month of April and May, but do not allow outside visitors. Therefore, Adopt A Class teams will not be able to visit for the remainder of the school
3. Schools are reopened for the month of April and May, but do not allow field trips. The Adopt A Class program will
resume monthly mentoring visits, but will not take field
4. Schools are reopened for the month of April and May and resume to normal. The Adopt A Class program will resume
monthly mentoring visits and field trips.
Adopt A Class will continue to share updates with you as we receive them. You can also get our updates by following us on social media (@adoptaclass). Please let us know if you have any questions or if you would like additional information.
Adopt A Class knows that for many of you, your commitment to serving our community goes beyond monthly mentoring visits. If you are interested in giving back to those in need during this time, please visit our website for more information.
These are tough times for all, but together, we will get through this! #BeTheSpark
