Teton Literacy Center is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation, guidelines and ordinances. At this point, it is our hope to run our typical Enrichment programming in the Winter of 2021. In an effort to align our clubs with TCSD podding efforts, students will have limited club options based on what elementary school they attend. Additionally, we will cap clubs at twelve students in order to maintain social distancing while present in our facilties. Beacuase of these efforts, it is possible that your student may land on the waitlist even if they have typically been granted a space in the past. For those whose students are often enrolled in more than one club, it is likely that your student will be placed in fewer clubs than they have in the past. As always, we will do our best to accommodate as many students as safely possible.
We are currently planning to run our winter programs from Monday, January 11th – Thursday, March 25th. We will be also be offering virtual clubs from January 4th thorugh 7th. Additionally, it is possible that we will need to alter or cancel our programs at any point during the winter session (possibly unexpectedly). As such, these dates and our winter programs are subject to change at any point. Following are a few of the many factors that could impact our winter programs:
State and/or local COVID-19 guidelines and ordinances.
Teton County School District – we will strive to follow the decisions of TCSD. If at any point TCSD determines they will continue with their Adaptive Learning Plan, TLC will likely resume our virtual programs in lieu of physical programs.
A TLC student, staff member or volunteer testing positive for COVID-19.
TLC staff illness may result in short or long-term cancellation of specific TLC programs that staff member is associated with.
In the event of an unexpected program cancelation, TLC will communicate with all families involved via email and texts.
Finally, we hope to notify families of their status for winter clubs on Thursday, December 10th (all notifications will be sent via email).
We thank you for your flexibility and patience as we continue to navigate this situation. We are excited to see our students and families again in the new year.
