WDSRA Return to Program Family Guide-updated 9.8.2020

Graduated Return to In-Person Programs!

Updated 6.25.2020

Everything you need to know BEFORE returning to in-person programs!

We will begin offering a limited number of weekly programs. In addition, we will be opening our 1:6 ratio Rec & Roll programs. As of right now, we anticipate having these programs open as soon as mid-to-late July. We will still continue to offer a full range of virtual programs.

Because the safety of participants and staff is our number one responsibility:

  • All in-person programs will have enhanced essential eligibility requirements in order to comply with state and federal COVID-19 regulations.
  • Along with being mandated requirements, these measures are necessary to keep all participants and staff members safe.
  • We understand these measures may be difficult for some of our participants.
  • We understand that our initial in-person offerings will only serve a percentage of all who want to return to programs.
  • We currently have limited facility space available to us in which to hold programs. We fully intend to expand offerings as facility space becomes more readily available.
  • We intend to ease restrictions as governmental regulations change based on state progress through the Governor’s plan.

We have outlined all the safety measures we are taking to keep participants and staff safe at programs.
