In inclement weather, last-minute schedule changes and school closings challenge families. For working parents, these closings threaten their ability to work. For hourly employees with strict schedules, a day off can deeply impact their ability to put food on the table.
Goddard Riverside prioritizes safety and understands the need for school closures and other citywide precautions. Additionally, we recognize the strain that such closures present for families. To address these challenges, we keep our doors open so that our parents are able to honor their employment commitments, even in inclement weather conditions. With the extreme cold and stormy conditions last week and through today, our after school programs have remained open and provided a safe place for students and peace of mind for parents.
We are deeply committed to our families and will continue to work to ensure their well-being.
