Dear Danvers Residents,
We hope you and your families are all doing well. These are very difficult and challenging times for all of us as this pandemic has made its way through our country and we attempt to get back to our new normal. We here at Danvers Recreation have spent a considerable amount of time over the past few months following the various phases and guidance that has been available to us in determining the impact that Covid -19 has had on our community, and particularly its impact on our recreational programming. After careful consideration we have determined that we cannot offer the traditional recreation programming that we had developed and planned to offer to you this summer. What we have decided is that we can offer a new exciting program for you this summer at three different locations with different experiences at each program. We are calling it “Summer 2020.” Summer 2020 will be a combination of three programs you may be familiar with, Falcons, Park and SNAKE. The staff is working hard on putting together a great summer that follows all of the new guidelines we must follow. This new program unfortunately will not meet everyone’s needs in the community, but it is something that we feel we can do safely, at an affordable price and packed with fun. We hope you can appreciate the thought and time we put into this decision, as it was not made lightly, but we feel it is in the best interest of all at this time. In the meantime, please take the time to experience out great local parks, waterfront, trails and open spaces the Town of Danvers has to offer. We look forward to seeing you real soon.
Regards, Danvers Recreation
Summer 2020 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
Can I sign up my child up for multiple weeks? Yes, you can sign up for as many as you’d like. Can I sign my child up for different locations? Yes, you can sign up for a different location every week if you’d like. Once committed to a site for the week, they must remain at that site for the week. No floating between sites will be allowed during the week. Will the Park, Snake, Falcons, or Let’s Play Sports programs be running? Unfortunately these programs will not be running this summer due to the restrictions surrounding the coronavirus, but we look forward to these programs returning next summer. How can we ensure other children aren’t sick with the coronavirus? While we cannot ensure 100% safety from the coronavirus or perform testing daily, we are trusting in honesty from legal guardians who will be asked a series of questions daily at drop off relating to the physical status of their children in relation to coronavirus symptoms. What happens if someone becomes symptomatic with covid-19 at the program? For children: Parents will be notified immediately. The child will immediately be isolated from others until parents arrive to pick up the child and remove them from the program. For staff: Staff must cease childcare duties immediately and be removed from others until they can safely leave. Staff must regularly self-monitor during the day to screen for new symptoms and seek a medical professional’s opinion prior to being cleared to return to work. Is there a sibling discount available? There is no sibling discount available, as we are running a lean program aimed at being cost effective for families. Are scholarships available? Contact our office if you are struggling to afford the program. Scholarships are available to those who qualify.
Will children and staff be required to wear face masks all summer long? Children will not have to wear face masks this summer, per the Governorâ€™s recommendations. Staff will be wearing face masks this summer. Can the children go in the schools, or buildings? Indoor space will be for emergencies only. What about bathrooms? There will be porta potties at every site. Will separate hand washing stations be available? Yes, there will be separate handwashing stations at all 3 sites. Can my child return home at will, similar to the Park program structure? No, once a child is at the program they can only be released to a legal guardian. They must also be dropped off by a legal guardian. Can my child bring a snack or drink? Yes, both are recommended. Will there be a water fountain/bubbler on site? No. Please pack a large water bottle. Should my child come with sunscreen? We kindly ask parents to apply sunscreen at home before the program starts daily. Will social distancing be enforced? Yes, all participants and staff must remain 6 feet away at all times. Will temperature checks be required at check in? No. Temperature checks are no longer required for children per the Governorâ€™s reopening plan guidelines. Can the fee be prorated? I only need 2 days of care for my child. No, unfortunately due to the operational costs of the program we are not able to offer prorated fees. Can my child walk or ride their bike to the program by themselves? No, all children need to be signed in and out by a legal guardian.
Do I have to call in the office if my child is not going to attend for a day or more? Yes. Please call 978-777-0001 x 3094 to let the office know your child will not be at the program. If your child is sick, we would like to know that information as well. If you do not call us, the program staff will call you to inquire why your child is absent. If it rains and there is no program for the day, will I get a refund? No refunds will be given. In the extreme case where rain prolongs for an extended period of days, a credit will be issued to household at the Recreation Directorâ€™s discretion. How many participants allowed per site? The maximum amount of participants is 60 per site, with cohorts of 10. Where do I pick up and drop off my child? Children can be dropped off at the designated curb side locations, which will be clearly marked at each site. What happens if there is a rain storm during the day? The program will close with rain. Parents will be notified, and expected to pick their children up within 20 minutes.
