ATTN PARENTS:

We have missed you all so much! As we planned the details of reopening, our number one priority has been figuring out how to run our classes in the safest way possible. We know our classes are different from anything else going on at the J. Our morning classes require a mixture of parents to be in the building with their little ones and our afternoon classes require mixing groups of children.

Unfortunately, due to the rise in Covid cases, and in order to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved, we feel it necessary to delay the start of classes.

Our plan is to start the session in October, as long as it seems safe. Please know, if you have already registered for a class, your spot will be waiting for you. We will adjust the pricing according to the amount of weeks in the session when we start again, and your account will be credited.

We apologize for the inconvenience and realize this is not ideal. You have no idea how much we look forward to having you and your children be part of our Shayna’s Village community as soon as it is safe to do so.

Stay tuned for more updates, and if you have any questions, please contact Karen Duncan at karend@orlandojcc.org.

Thank you for understanding.
