The New School Year

Following strict social distancing and group gathering guidelines, Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley is open to all families in Yerington, Silver Springs, Dayton and Hawthorne for the 2020-21 school year!

This school year is a unique one, and as such our Club sites will be open all day to serve not only those who need to come after school but those who are off-track on any given week. Our sites will have a focus on distance learning, virtual classes, schoolwork, and homework during hours when school is in session. Tutoring, technology, and any other help necessary for this year’s hybrid model will be provided at our sites.

This summer’s preschool at the Yerington clubhouse will be extending into the school year. Free of charge for 3, 4 and 5-year-olds who are potty trained, the preschool will hold two classes of 12 kids each day from 8 a.m. – 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. – 3 p.m.

Yerington – Closed August 27-31 – 7 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Yerington Preschool – Opening Sept. 1 – 8 a.m. – 11 a.m. 12 p.m. – 3 p.m.
Dayton – Closed through August 31 – 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Hawthorne – Closed August 27 & 28 – 6 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday

Measures, in accordance with guidelines from the governor’s office, will be taken to ensure we can serve our communities while keeping both youth and staff safe. Our sites are cleaned daily, and we will practice both social distancing and limiting crowds in our sites.

Parents interested can see our handbook, policies, pricing and signup information below. We won’t turn any child away due to financial hardship. Scholarships are available to those in need.

No parents will be permitted in the building. Parents or a designated pick up person will need to call when they arrive. A staff member will meet the child at the door to do a daily wellness screen before being permitted into the program. A hygiene station will be set up at the entrance of the facility so that children can clean their hands before they enter.

Items children and teens are allowed to bring into the building will be limited. Allowable items include a mask, a reusable water bottle (suggested), coat, backpacks with schoolwork, electronics, and medications. All items must be clean and, if possible, will be wiped down with sanitizing wipes upon arrival to the Club. Please also legibly label any personal items with your child’s name. 

Parents are asked to provide an extended list of emergency contacts who are able to pick the child up in case of any emergency. Parents are asked to notify Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley if any children participating in the program have symptoms or have potentially been exposed and will be asked to sign a document declaring their health status daily. 

If a child exhibits symptom (fever, dry cough accompanied with a fever, difficulty breathing), they will be separated from the group until they are able to be picked up by a parent or listed emergency contact.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley is taking the current situation very seriously and we have a zero-tolerance policy in regard to practicing social distancing and daily screenings.
