ATTENTION:

Student and staff health and safety is very important to us. We are aware of the heightened concern that is present in and around our schools and community regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Because of this, the Center will be following the actions of Governor Tom Wolf to close all PA schools for a period of 10 business days effective Monday, March 16, 2020. We apologize for this abrupt closing but respect the state/federal decisions in keeping everyone safe. During this time, the center will undergo a full detail and cleaning to ensure that the building is fully sanitized. We expect to reopen on Monday, March 30, 2020.

We will continue to monitor the guidance provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Centers for Disease.


Better Lives. Better Community. Better Harrisburg.
