UPDATES FOR 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR
THE SAFETY OF OUR CUSTOMERS IS OUR FIRST PRIORITY.
The STEM Labs is committed to interactive, hands-on STEM enrichment and keeping the educational progress of students on-track. Given the public health concerns at this time, we are strictly adhering to the guidance of the CDC and local health officials. We are in the unique position to offer our teaching services while maintaining small class sizes, social distancing, and use of dedicated supplies. In addition, for everyone’s benefit, the use of facial coverings for the staff and the children is required, as setting a uniform environment where everyone wears a covering limits community spread.
Our traditional After-School Program will be modified. The STEM Labs will no longer provide transportation to pick up children from school. This change is to ensure that children are able to be assessed for general COVID-19 symptoms and temperature checks conducted prior to children entering our care. This is not possible given the current process for student pick-up at the schools. In addition, maintaining social distance is not possible in our transportation vehicles. As a result, students attending The STEM Labs will need to be dropped off and picked up at our Mayfaire Town Center location by a parent or guardian.
In these modified services going forward, The STEM Labs will continue to focus on its core benefit, which is integrated enrichment learning labs with professional homework help and educational tutors. We will continue to offer exciting STEM activities as part of this service, including coding, robotics, chemistry and much more.
As parents, we also understand flexibility is needed at this time. To balance our center’s adherence to best practices for limiting community spread of COVID-19 with the needs of parents and school schedule changes, we are offering 5 day, 3 day and 2 day a week sessions. These sessions will be able to be purchased on a monthly basis. We will closely monitor the pandemic and guidance from officials, and adjust our services accordingly.
Starting July 13 we will be accepting students for the month of September. Exact times of sessions and pricing information will be released at this time. If your family is interested in this program, please email us or call 910-679-5060 to reserve a spot.
Thank you for your continued support with our mission.
