Burlington LU: Lucille Umbarger

COVID-19 FALL PROGRAM INFORMATION

Families with students enrolled in the Burlington-Edison School District seeking full-day programs should register for the Allen School Program.

Anticipating there are families not in need of full-day programs, but interested in some regular supports and interaction for their children, we are launching Club Connection at Lucille Umbarger School. The program will operate from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. There is no cost to participate in the program.

Club members can enroll in one of four options: 1. Monday through Friday, with the intention to attend nearly every day; 2. Monday/Wednesday, attending twice weekly; 3. Tuesday/Thursday, attending twice weekly; 4. Friday Only. Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. 

All Club sites will continue to operate under cohort models, with students placed in groups of up to ten, with no interaction between cohorts, in the interest of everyone’s health and safety. While this limits the free-choice developmental activities Boys & Girls Clubs are known and loved for, our staff has worked hard to recreate the fun Club experience our members and families have come to expect. 

Club hours: 2020-2021 School Year, 3-6pm

Who Can Attend the Club? Any youth in grades K-8.

Membership Information: Beginning with the 2020-21 School year, all membership registration and interaction will be conducted through the new MyClubHub system

Club Director: Nick Alzate

Who can attend: Our 21st Learning Center at the Lucille Umbarger Middle School in Burlington will serve 6-8th grade students after school from 3:30-6pm Monday thru Friday with dinner & transportation provided. There is no cost to attend, but waiting lists may apply. *Transportation is currently unavailable due to COVID restrictions. 

Program Curriculum highlights include targeted Social-Emotional Learning interventions based on grade level, incorporation of activities to support the recently adopted Integrated Science/Social Studies in Burlington-Edison Schools, STEM Activities, Field Trips, Workforce Readiness/Career Exploration engagement, and more.

Burlington: Allen Club

COVID-19 FALL PROGRAM INFORMATION

In partnership with the Burlington-Edison School District, we are able to offer a full-day program, 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, at Allen School. The cost is $600/mo per child, with a reduced rate of $300/mo per child for individuals qualifying for Free/Reduced Price Meals.

Club members will be assigned to a cohort for safety and health purposes, which will remain consistent during their participation. Participants will be grouped in their cohort, first by family, with all siblings in the same cohort, and then by like employers or industries when possible, to further mitigate cross-contamination risks due to COVID-19.

Students should arrive no later than 8:45 am. This is to ensure all students are settled and prepared for their synchronous learning activities. Students should not be picked up before 3:00 pm because of direct instructional time.

In partnership with the Burlington-Edison School District participants will be supported through instructional times at a 2:10 ratio by B-ESD classified staff to assist students with their remote learning. Because of this partnership, only students enrolled in the Burlington-Edison School District can attend this program.

Breakfast and Lunch are available through arrangements with B-ESD. The Club will provide a free PM snack each day. Families needing to send food with their children are advised to only do so in disposable containers.

In the afternoons, more traditional Club staff take over at a 1:10 ratio, with activities that include homework help, tutoring, snack, social-emotional learning, enrichment activities, and FUN.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County is providing leadership and technical assistance for this program, with a Club Coordinator on location at all times of the day. Both B-ESD and Club staff working in the program have completed rigorous background screening and supplemental training specific to this program iteration.

Anticipated program start date is 9/14/2020.
