Dear Center Families,

During the 2017-2018 season the CDC estimated that influenza killed about 80,000 people. It was the highest death toll in 40 years. To put this into perspective, Gillette Stadium’s capacity is 66,820. The following year, the CDC pushed and encouraged people to get the flu vaccination and while the CDC documented “only” 34,200 deaths from influenza during the 2018-2019 influenza season, it was considered one of the longest in 10 years, and there were more than 490,600 hospitalizations. Flu season statistics are still being finalized for 2019-2020.

Dear Center Families,
As we kick off the new school year, I thought I would reintroduce our teacher teams in this first newsletter since we have so many changes:

After 30 years of being with us, it is with gracious hearts that we announce the upcoming retirement of Miss Paula Morrill from her Gingerbear teaching position at The Children's Center. We invite all current and alumni children and their families, current and former coworkers, and friends Friday, August 28, from 6 to 7 p.m. (rain or shine) as we honor her with a drive-thru celebration at the Center so that we all can extend our well wishes.

Dear Center Families,
My August newsletters of the past have been themed around thinking about your child’s “back to school” transition. But for those of us with school age children, managing our own stress level goes way beyond “getting back into the routine” because frankly we do not know what that routine will look like. As I write this, many area school boards still need to meet and decide on what “reopening” even looks like. Like you, I do not have a definite direction for my own rising junior’s plans.

Dear Center Families,

While July is all about summer fun, The Children’s Center has a heightened awareness during this year’s season on a variety of safety precautions for your children. Not only are we being vigilant about preventing the spread of COVID-19 in our little community, we are also diligent when it comes to ticks, sunscreen, and heat exhaustion or stroke.
