Recreation Department Announcements & News

COVID-19 Information

 

The following is an update on COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus, and its effect on the Town of East Longmeadow Recreation Department programming. 

Due to the outbreak, and the precautionary decisions made by the East Longmeadow School Department and MIAA (Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association), the Recreation Department is acting in accordance with protecting the community. As a result, all Recreation Department activities, special events, and programs will be suspended until further notice.  

Discussions are ongoing with the School Department and the East Longmeadow Department of Public Health who are in frequent communication with state and federal officials. Due to the fact that this situation is evolving rapidly, we are looking to Governor Baker as to what the next step will be.  

In addition with this suspension of activities, all registrations for Spring and Summer 2020 programs have been suspended.  We are keeping spreadsheets for those that would like to be put on a pre-registration list in the event we are able to proceed with programming.  

If Governor Baker and our Town Manager Mary McNally cancels programs, we will refund registration fees automatically. You will be notified once a program is officially cancelled. However, if you would like a refund at any time before that we will be happy to process your requests.  Due to roster considerations you will also be forfeiting your spot.

Furthermore, the Recreation Office and Town offices are closed to the public. To reach the Recreation Department, please send an email to recreation@eastlongmeadowma.gov.

Please take the necessary precautions outlined by the Department of Public Health, CDC, and World Health Organization to keep you and your family safe. The safety of our citizens, participants and staff are paramount to us. 

If you have any questions please contact recreation@eastlongmeadowma.gov, or by calling 413-525-5437 ext. 2.

Thank you, and stay safe.
