A Message from Growing Up Knowing
In light of the CDC recommendations, we are suspending programming for the next 8 weeks. Current recommendations state that public gatherings of 10 or more should be canceled for the next eight weeks. Due to the nature of our programming, which involves close contact with caregivers and children, small spaces, and the fact that many of our caregivers are over 60, we feel this is the best plan to protect our participants, facilitators, and staff from potential exposure.
Growing Up Knowing’s mission is to empower families, teaching safety, reducing risky behavior, and offering hope for a brighter future. Following the suggestions of medical professionals and scientists is the right thing to do. If we all do our part, we can reduce the spread of the virus and all get back to normal sooner rather than later.
We will continue to monitor the situation and suggestions from the CDC and MSDH, and provide updates as circumstances warrant.
We look forward to rescheduling programs for the summer and fall. We want to continue partnering with our community! The Growing Up Knowing staff is available to you for any questions or concerns at 601-589-0275.
