Due to the pandemic and the guidelines provided by the government in response to the pandemic, changes have been made to the registration process. To accommodate these changes and to apply appropriate social distancing, families will need to register via the wait list when signing up for all programs. Once the wait list reaches the necessary threshold, the registered families will be processed into the appropriate program, and then will be notified of the change in registration status. The children will be placed in pods of 10 per the DCF guidelines with the same children on their scheduled days.**

We are certain that all of our families have many questions as this school year is about to begin. We are still working out some of the basic details with the HVRSD at this time, so additional emails will be sent out to all registered families regarding drop off and pick up procedures.

Please know that the HVYMCA has been in full operation since March 16th,2020 when the HVRSD was shut down by Governor Murphy and we have followed all Department of Children and Families, Department of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control guidelines and regulations since that date. We will continue to update our families with any additional requirements communicated to us by any of these agencies that we will be required to follow once school begins as necessary.
