Recreation Department Announcements & News

COVID-19 Information

 
Friday, March 13, 2020:
 

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 recent 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 Tuesday, March 31, 2020.

 

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 will re-evaluate this suspension leading up to April 1st and take necessary measures thereafter.

 

In addition with this suspension of activities, all registrations for Spring and Summer 2020 programs have been suspended until Wednesday, April 1, 2020 when the situation will be re-assessed.

 

We recognize that this suspension will impact the entirety of our programs in different ways. The Recreation Office will be reaching out to individual programs with more information specific to that program.

 

Furthermore, the Recreation Office will be relocated beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 to the Pine Knoll Recreation Area at 1974 Allen Street, Springfield, for the next two weeks. Hours of operation will remain Monday-Friday, 8AM-4PM, but the preferred method of communication will be through our department e-mail at recreation@eastlongmeadowma.gov. You may also communicate with us by calling our office or visiting the Pine Knoll office building.

 

For more information on the Coronavirus, please visit the Town website at www.eastlongmeadowma.gov. For updates regarding specific Recreation programs, please visit elrec.recdesk.com.

 

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.
