Update: The Y's Early Learning Center & Before and After-School Programs

December 31, 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

The Perth Amboy Public Schools, in collaboration and guidance with the local health department, has decided to return to remote instruction. The expectation is that schools will remain on remote instruction for two weeks, and will return to in-person instruction on Tuesday, January 18, 2022. 

BEFORE AND AFTER-SCHOOL CARE: The Y’s Before and After-School Programs will be closed upon our return from the holiday break beginning Monday, January 3, 2022. We are hoping to resume before and after-school programs on Tuesday, January 18, 2022. You will be receiving further correspondence from Marivel Ramirez, our Director of Child Care, with pertinent information. 

If you have any questions regarding Before-School Care or After-School Care, please contact Ms. Marivel Ramirez at 732-442-3632 ext. 6512 or email
at mramirez@rbaymca.org. 

THE Y’S EARLY LEARNING CENTER: Y’s Early Learning Center will return to remote instruction after the holiday break beginning Monday, January 3, 2022. Remote instruction will be in effect for students and staff. 

You will receive further correspondence from Shomone Wheeler, our Director of Pre-School, and/or your child’s teacher, with information regarding remote instruction and operations during these two weeks. 

Please contact Ms. Shomone Wheeler with any school-specific questions at 732-442-3633 ext. 7008 or email at shomone.wheeler@rbaymca.org. 

We thank you in advance for your cooperation and flexibility during this time. This was not an easy decision to make. However, the health and well-being of our students and staff are paramount to our ability to return to in-person programming in the very near future. 

We will continue to monitor the local health department and Perth Amboy Public School guidelines. Stay tuned for updates.
