Dear Parents,

In accordance with state directives, Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley has adjusted all its sites to keep your children and our staff safe. We are currently open, with strict social distancing and safety procedures in place, in Yerington and Hawthorne to all families. Sutro Elementary in Dayton is currently open to children of healthcare professionals only, and we are working with Lyon County School District and their timeline to open fully in both Dayton and Silver Springs. For more information, click here. The Attic Thrift Store is currently open for business but per state guidelines the Yerington Movie House remains closed.

We understand the impact this has on our families, and we truly appreciate your understanding and patience as we work to reopen for all our families in all our communities.

If any families are in need of food or basic necessity throughout the closure please contact Christina Hurt, Director of Operations at Christina@bgcmasonvalley.org.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley will reopen its doors on a limited basis, now open to all families in Yerington and Hawthorne, and to kids whose parents work in the healthcare industry in Dayton. We’re working closely with Lyon County School District and their timeline to fully reopen in Silver Springs and Dayton. We understand the impact this has on our families and we greatly appreciate your patience as we work to serve all our members in all our communities.

The clubhouse in Yerington and school site at Sutro Elementary are open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and the Hawthorne clubhouse is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday.

Measures, in accordance with guidelines from the governor’s office, will be taken to ensure we can serve our communities while keeping both youth and staff safe. Our sites are cleaned daily, and we will practice both social distancing and limiting crowds in our sites.

Parents interested can see our handbook, policies, pricing and signup information below. We won’t turn any child away due to financial hardship. Scholarships are available to those in need.

No parents will be permitted in the building. Parents or a designated pick up person will need to call when they arrive. A staff member will meet the child at the door to do a daily wellness screen before being permitted into the program. A hygiene station will be set up at the entrance of the facility so that children can clean their hands before they enter.

Items children and teens are allowed to bring into the building will be limited. Allowable items include: a reusable water bottle (suggested), coat, electronics and medications. All items must be clean and, if possible, will be wiped down with sanitizing wipes upon arrival to the Club. Please also legibly label any personal items with your child’s name. Backpacks are not allowed. However, we know that schooling is important, so please send your children with their school work and anything they might need to finish it.

Parents are asked to provide an extended list of emergency contacts who are able to pick the child up in case of any emergency. Parents are asked to notify Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley if any children participating in the program have symptoms or have potentially been exposed and will be asked to sign a document declaring their health status daily. 

If a child exhibits symptom (fever, dry cough accompanied with a fever, difficulty breathing), they will be separated from the group until they are able to be picked up by a parent or listed emergency contact.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley is taking the current situation very seriously and we have a zero-tolerance policy in regard to practicing social distancing and daily screenings.

Breakfast and lunch, meeting USDA guidelines, will be provided each day by Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley. Should your child bring outside food into the building, it must be in a disposable container only. However, we ask that children do not bring outside food into the facility unless it is necessary due to dietary restrictions or allergies.
