The P.A.L.S. office will be closed for the remainder of this year to help keep everyone safe. We will be re-evaluating the decision again in January to see if we can all return to work safely in 2021. However, we will continue to work from home, and in-person meetings if required will be by appointment only. If you need to pick up materials at the office, please let us know and we can make an appointment. If you need to contact us, please send an email, or leave a message and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. We are trying to reduce the risk as much as possible so we are doing everything we can online. It's a difficult situation right now but we will get through it together.
We appreciate everyone's efforts to keep P.A.L.S. active and going forward during this pandemic. We cannot express how proud we are of your response to Covid. Your commitment and determination to keep learning together have been awe-inspiring.
People may be more worried and stressed out during this lockdown. Please take care of each other and remember to take care of yourselves. We will be thinking of you all. Stay in touch. Stay safe.
