Fall 2021 Updates
Our Fall 2021 semester is rapidly approaching! We are excited to get started! We have a few important updates for you.
Our location has changed to Trinity Baptist Church in Lakewood (8421 Meadow Rd SW, Lakewood, WA 98499). This facility is much larger than our original location and comes with a large outdoor fenced play area as well as plenty of space and opportunity for some of the more space-demanding classes like gym and art. The church has been very welcoming and we are very excited to be working with them.
Because GEO is a licensed 501c3, we are obligated to adhere to any Washington State declarations from the city, county, and state level. This means that we are requiring masks for any adult and child older than 5 years of age. The current orders from the Secretary of Health states that even vaccinated individuals must mask up when in “... youth settings in areas where children are present or expected to be present;”. Though we understand that this may not align with everyone’s preferences, like most other youth programs, we are required to implement these measures. This policy is in effect for the fall semester and will be reevaluated for Spring Semester and each semester thereafter. Masks will be optional in the following locations:
Outdoor locations including a fenced play area and adjacent fields.
Sanctuary/Fellowship Hall during P.E.-style classes.
Indoor locations while eating during lunchtime.
As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected]
Your GEO Board of Directors,
