Summer Escape 2020

Safety is most important to us. In being essential to the population of students with special needs we serve, we are moving forward with offering Summer Escape.

We have made changes in line with The Florida Re-Opening Plan and recommendations from community leaders to keep our clients and families safe in light of the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Limiting access to the building.
  • Keeping groups limited to numbers recommended by The Florida Re-Opening Plan.
  • Having staff meet the children outside for the check-in process.
  • Checking temperatures and completing health screenings.
  • Washing children's hands when they arrive.
  • Doing additional disinfecting of commonly touched surfaces.

The Florida Re-Opening Plan can be found here:
