COVID-19 Return to Play & Programs Document
You can find Harpswell Recreation's document for Return to Play & Programs for Fall 2020 activities below under the forms section.
Here is the email sent out on 8/7/20:
Hello Harpswell Community,
First and foremost, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. We have received questions from the community about how COVID-19 will change this year's Recreational programming. We know this outbreak has been stressful to many and recognize that exercising and participating in activities and programs can be a healthy way to cope with stress and connect with our wonderful community. After careful thought and planning, we are excited to let you know that we plan to resume youth programming while following CDC considerations to protect participants, families and our community.
We are still in the planning process and working on a Return to Play & Programs document to lead us through this time. Please know that our programming will look very different than it normally does. Please grant us patience and grace while we adapt to the new requirements and guidelines to make our programs as safe as possible.
We will be following the MSAD 75 risk designations when determining whether or not programs will run. If schools are in the green or yellow categories, programs will run. If schools are in the red category, programs will be canceled or put on hold until it is safe to return.
Harpswell Recreation will only be holding low risk outdoor programming for the Fall 2020 season. As we are an all volunteer organization, all programs will be based on having enough volunteers to make them run. Our season will be postponed until after school starts. We want to give kids and families time to get used to their new school setting whether that is full time in class, hybrid, virtual or home school (and know we support whichever setting you choose for your family!)
All programs will require symptom screening with temperature check, attendance, hand hygiene, physical distance and mask safety.
We will email you when our Return to Play & Programs document is done, so you have time to review it and know whether you and your family is comfortable signing up for our programs. We will also email when registrations are live and ready for sign ups.
We really look forward to seeing all of you in person again! If you have questions please don't hesitate to contact us with the info below.
