With COVID-19, Coronavirus, sweeping the nation, Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky are experiencing many closures and cancellations. See below for a running list of closures. If you would like to add a closure or cancellation, e-mail Amanda C at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We know it can be difficult to have little ones at home during this time. We know it is difficult to juggle non-traditional instruction time with busy little ones and work. Be on the lookout for craft and activity ideas on our Facebook page – these are the crafts and activities we will be doing with our kiddos, too. Do you have a suggestion for a featured craft or activity? Let us know! We are in the trenches with you, figuring these unprecedented times out, too. We see you. We are you. We’ve got this. You’ve got this.
Most importantly … stay healthy. Wash your hands. Don’t touch your face. Be safe. Be kind. Be patient.
