"The Northfield Recreation Commission has voted to cancel its summer playground program held at the Northfield Elementary School for this summer due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The Recreation Commission, the Program Director and the medical staff made the decision after looking closely at the structure of the program and its large number of participants. It was determined that it would be very difficult to follow any CDC guidelines or recommendations such as social distancing, fever checks, masks and other safety precautions. The commission realizes this will be a hardship for many families as this program is a very important part of the community. However, as difficult a decision it was, the number one concern of this commission, the director and medical staff is the health and safety of the children, their families and our staff. The Recreation Commission will continue to monitor the COVID-19 virus and plan future programs accordingly."

Thank you for your support and clear communication as we've navigated this decision making process. We look forward to offering the program at NES to the many families in our community next summer and for many more summers after.
