HEALTH GUIDELINES AND PROTOCOLS FOR CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS
Please familiarize yourself with JCC Harlem's health and safety protocols listed below. These are subject to change as the health landscape evolves.
We believe everyone carries a responsibility for the health of our community, and place the highest value on ensuring safe communal spaces that inspire comfort and confidence. In an effort to encourage our children to be responsible community members, we require that all adults who attend any of our classes adhere strictly to our health and safety guidelines. Our experience has shown that our youngest community members respond best when they take their lead from trusted adults. Your partnership will ensure that we will continue to be able to provide the highest quality of programming during a time when starting and building relationships is invaluable. We appreciate your partnership and cooperation.
