@godal, I was in the Catskills on July 4th weekend and almost all sleepaway camps converted into day camp, city day camps are full, sleep away camps are operating in PA. MA. VT. and NH.
BH frum people are resourceful for the most part, we managed to have Weddings, Bar Mitzvahs Etc., make peasch on our own, so on and so forth we can manage to keep our kids busy thru this summer.
I plan to take my kids /grandkids for a week to a region that I always drove by and never knew how nice it was, North Central PA.July 8, 2020 12:14 pm at 12:14 pm #1880613
@n0m, a lot of thing can happen between now and next summer, Corona can be over, Moshiach can come, you can be married, Iran and Israel will make peace and climate change will stop.July 8, 2020 8:44 pm at 8:44 pm #1880784GadolhadorahParticipant
Commonsaychel: Agreed. Parents will manage for the next several weeks until school starts. Hopefully, all the yeshivos are using the time to develop and implement plans for a safe reopening. It will require a lot more than a few boxes of face masks and hand sanitizer. If NYS is going to impose rigid health and safety requirements for all schools in the State, including private and religious schools, it should consider providing some funding to help meet the costs of those requirements. There are probably some yeshivos that may have financial difficulty funding these new requirements that will be a prerequisite to their reopening.July 9, 2020 10:55 am at 10:55 am #1880886CTLAWYERParticipant
The funds from the CARES ACT received by school districts for COVID-19 related expenses MUST be shared with private/parochial/day schools and K-12 Yeshivas.
Make sure your associated schools have made contact and requested their shares.
In our town, the funds have been shared with 2 Catholic K-8, 1 Catholic High School, 1 Protestant K-12 and a non-demoninational Jewish K-8 day school. The nearest Day schools and Yeshiva High Schools have received funds from their local public Boards of Ed.
This money can be used for masks, cleaning supplies, setting up distance learning (software and equipment, buying separation material (plexiglass dividers) etc.July 12, 2020 11:30 am at 11:30 am #1881434
NYS put out a memo closing all loopholes that camps were operating under, I knew it was a matter of time, there are people who work for NYS who are equally has smart as the camp directors, now there can only be day camps in NYS.
