My name is MS and my son LS, attends the Y academy program at Greenville Elementary in the Edgemont School District. L is a second grader and I found out this week that the school is planning to bring back children in k-2 for full-time in-person instruction. I am just waiting for more details so I know exactly when this change is going to go into effect. I know that full-time school will be beneficial for my son but I am struggling with the change a bit due to the wonderful experience L has had at the Y program each day. This year has obviously been difficult for children and adults alike and the Y program has been a place that brings my son immense joy! L leaves the Y every single day with a huge smile and happily recounts stories about the day. Several weeks ago I was given the option of L going back to school full day (prior to it becoming mandated) because he has an IEP for support services. I know it is important for him to be in the classroom but I couldn’t say yes to that offer. L LOVES being at the Y and I didn’t want to take him away from the place that makes him most happy. Chris, Jackie and Joe are all amazing people and it is an understatement to say how blessed I feel having them care for L each day. Chris, Joe and Jackie are fabulous workers and provided something that no one else has been able to do this terrible year! They make him laugh, they make him smile, they provide academic structure and support, they show interest in his interests and they make him feel special. When I opted out of the optional full day school program, I emailed L’s principal, teacher and school therapist to explain my decision. I explained to them, how important an outlet the Y has been for L and I didn’t want to take him out of a place that brings him so much joy. My emails to school staff detailed all of the important aspects of the Y, particularly the relationships L has formed with Chris, Joe, and Jackie. At this time, L has no choice but to return to school full-time. Again, I do know it will be beneficial…but…my goodness we are going to miss the Y team. Although Chris, Joe, and Jackie are unique individuals, all three of them are truly exceptional! Truly, truly exceptional! I could not have asked for a more perfect team to care for my little guy. Thank you to the Y for setting up this academy program to help families manage during these difficult times. From an extremely appreciative mom…thank you Chris, Joe, and Jackie!
