After a successful Summer Academy program from June through the start of August, Boys & Girls Clubs of Nassau County will be open for afterschool programs when Nassau County schools start on August 24.
Over the summer months, both the Miller and Roberts Clubs provided full-day summer camp experiences for children ages 6-18. We fully implemented the CDC and Florida Department of Health guidelines such as social distancing, requiring masks to be worn inside our clubs and temperature checks and regular handwashing for children and staff, which allowed our Clubs to open to our community. We also installed plastic barriers at the reception desks, reconfigured classrooms for social distancing, and revised our check-in procedures to ensure the health and safety of our staff and members.
This fall the Clubs will continue with mandatory masks, intensive cleaning schedules, and temperature checks before entering and leaving the building.
While Nassau County school bus drivers will no longer deliver our members to the Clubs, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Nassau County has leased buses from the school district and hired licensed bus drivers to transport our members to the Clubs after school. The buses will also maintain a vigorous cleaning schedule, as well as having other safety and health measures in place.
While we must only operate at 25 percent of our full capacity, we are looking forward to providing a safe place to go after school for the kids of Nassau County who need us most. As always, we will continue to provide daily meals, homework help, enrichment activities, and mentorship to our members.
