On March 13, 2020, Riverside was shut down due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Massachusets per our health care consultant recommendtion and the DPH. Throughout the shut down we remaind phyically closed but our teaching teams kept the connections and learning happening through the virtual zoom meeting platform.
On July 1, 2020, Riverside was given the yellow light to open again in a conditional capacity according to the health and saftey guidelines put forth by the Department of Early Education and Care. We opened with about half the capacity we would normally be operating with. The rooms were able to adapt and still offer socialization and learning for our children.
On August 11, 2020, Riverside received the green light to be open with a regular operating license with the new health and saftey guidelines in place and the new operational requirements we attested to follw.
This has been an emotional rollercoater for all involved in our community. We thank all our families for sticking by us and being her when we reopened.
