Dear Hypothesis Haven community,
We want to assure you that we take the health and well-being of our customers and team very seriously. Like you, we're closely monitoring the quickly developing effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have temporarily suspended all planned spring break activities in compliance with guidance from public health officials and local government agencies.
Our New Not-So-Normal
As we navigate these unsettling times together, I want to reassure parents who are simultaneously putting on a brave face for our children as we also seek reassurance from public and government officials.
Though it may seem that we are hiding from a danger that is lurking just outside of our doors, I challenge us to push back against FEAR, which has a way of crippling or paralyzing.
What does this look like?
*Setting daily intentions and practicing calming meditation first thing in the morning
*Taking a break from continuous TV and news coverage about the coronavirus
*Adopting an attitude of SAFETY by leaning into the steps that we can take to protect ourselves and our families.
Resources for Out of School Time Learning
As school schedules have been disrupted by COVID-19, please remember that while routines and structure are helpful for children, every family is different, and it is important to do what comes naturally for your family.
Below are a few suggestions adapted from an online source. If you are able to do all - or even just one-activity from the list, please know that whatever you do is enough.
