Dear Friends of Springboard to Learning,
Springboard continues to closely monitor the news surrounding COVID-19, and is actively following the recommendations of federal, state, and local legislature, as well as the recommendations of the CDC. The health and safety of our staff and teaching artists, as well as the students and teachers we serve, remains our top priority.
With the announcement that most major school districts in the bi-state region will close from Wednesday, March 18th through Friday, April 3rd, we are working closely with schools to address the needs of students, as well as with teaching artists to address how closings will impact their livelihood. We will continue to hold conversations with schools and teaching artists during this time and share information as it becomes available.
Due to gathering restrictions surrounding COVID-19, the decision was made to cancel the annual WiseWrite Festival on April 7th at the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis. Springboard may determine to cancel other upcoming events, as more information becomes available regarding COVID-19. We will keep the community informed as decisions are finalized.
Beginning Tuesday, March 17th, Springboard to Learning will temporarily implement a remote work policy through Friday, April 3rd. Though our physical offices will be closed, all staff will continue working remotely during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm). To contact a specific Springboard staff member, please visit our staff directory. In addition, all scheduled face to face meetings will transition to virtual interactions.
The mission of Springboard to Learning is to develop children’s abilities to think critically, create, collaborate, and communicate, and we remain committed to this mission even—and especially—in times of difficulty. We will continue to actively serve the community and provide helpful resources to St. Louis residents. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and on our website for updated news and resources for teachers, students, parents, and teaching artists.
