YWCA El Paso extends “camps” for school age children as school openings are delayed
El Paso, TX – In light of the City of El Paso’s health order that schools may not offer in-person instruction until after Labor Day, YWCA El Paso del Norte Region (YWCA) will continue to offer full-time care for students up to age 12. Students may enroll at one of YWCA’s six Early Learning Academies located around El Paso.
“We understand why the city and schools have made this decision, but many families do not have the option of staying home with their students,” said Sylvia Acosta, Ph.D., CEO of YWCA. “YWCA is proud to offer these vital programs that will support families and students during this time.”
“YWCA programs have been open throughout the pandemic, so our team members are well-versed in health and safety measures,” said Diana Hastings, YWCA Senior Programs Administrator. “We will continue following CDC, state, city, and all other guidelines regarding social distancing, reduced ratios, masks, and more to provide as safe an environment as possible.”
YWCA Academies are equipped with WiFi and instructors and tutors are available to assist students with distance learning. YWCA is following American Academy of Pediatrics, CDC, city, and state guidelines and requirements for operations during COVID-19. All YWCA Educational Programs team members are required to wear masks and face shields while on YWCA premises and students are required to wear facemasks.
