Swan Valley Learning Center families, By now, I hope you have had a chance to digest the latest Executive Order from our Governor regarding Covid 19.

By 4:00 today, if you are a "critical infrastructure worker" who chooses childcare, please reply to this email. The reply should provide: Your name Your occupation Number of children to serve Specific days and approximate time that childcare is needed. Note: This Executive decision will go into effect at 12:01 am on Tuesday, March 24, 2020. Thank you.

We will post our decision based on your responses on Wednesday, March 25, 2020. Please see link below to Survey: https://forms.gle/ndA7SiyywzmstcQr5 Sincerely, Louisa Marx, Director SVLC

Dear Parents, We were notified that there will be a water main valve repair that must be replaced. The water will be shut off at the high school on Monday March 30th, 2020..There is a good chance this will necessitate a 3 day shut down with a boiled water advisory before all is cleared. Since we are scheduled to be closed on Friday April 3, 2020, we have decided it would be best to close for the whole week to allow for all repairs and any unforeseen complications as this might not be as simple as a replacement.This is truly out of our control. We are notifying you as far in advance as possible so those of you who signed up for Spring Break reservation can find alternate care during this time.I again, apologize and if you have any concerns or questions please feel free to contact us. Thank you,
