Boys & Girls Club of Manhattan

UPDATE ON CLOSURE

Dear Boys & Girls Club Parents and Families,


There is nothing more important to the Boys & Girls Club of Manhattan than the safety of our members. We have been closely monitoring developments associated with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Following the decision of USD 383 Manhattan-Ogden, in which the majority of our satellite program facilities are located, to close through 3/30/2020, Boys & Girls Club of Manhattan will likewise be closed at all satellite locations, including its Wamego locations, through 3/30/2020.


Additionally, the Boys & Girls Club of Manhattan has been in communication with Riley County Health Department (RCHD). The recommendation at this time for a drop-in facility like ourselves is to also remain closed for any type of Youth Programming at our 220 S. 5th Street location. Therefore, our Board of Directors has determined that there will be no program offerings while the public schools remain closed and/or until the recommendations from RCHD change.


Please understand that this situation is unlike any other we have seen. Our top priority is the safety of our children and our thoughts are with the families who are struggling to make plans during this time of closure.


Our administrative staff will continue to report to work however our office will remain closed to the public. If you have any questions during this time of closure, please give us a call at 785-539-1947.


Thank You!


Trent Jones
Executive Director

President of the Board of Directors
