Dear Parent or Guardian of Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township Members,
As a result of the Governor’s order for District 220 and 300 to close its schools, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township will temporarily close all of its program sites for at least two weeks, beginning tomorrow, Monday, March 16, 2020. Over the next 14 days, we will continue to make additional adjustments and announcements as needed within that period, including the determination on when it is time to reopen. There has been no known incidence of COVID-19 within the BGCDT community.
We wish you and your family good health and look forward to reopening and providing our meaningful programs with your children.
