OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE

Dear Mathews-Dickey Community, 

 

As always, the first priority of Mathews-Dickey is to safeguard our community, volunteers, and staff. Every day we learn more and more about the Coronavirus/COVID-19. We are following the recommendations of the US Center for Disease and Prevention, the CDC, and state and local health agencies.​ Remember to wash your hands with soap frequently, cough/sneeze in your elbow, avoid touching your face, wear gloves while pumping gas, and help others when you can. 

 

During this time, we want to help you stay active. Each week, we will share 2-3 pre-recorded lessons on Facebook and YouTube, that you can do at home — view them now on our Virtual Learning page. Live Zoom classes have concluded as of May 1 2020.  In person summer camp was in session June 15 - July 24. 

 

Stay tuned for fall programming announcements.

 

 Stay healthy and safe!
