Up a Creek Schedule


Up a Creek is Closed until April 30th

     Pursuant to the Alabama Shelter-in-Place Order issued April 3, 2020, Up a Creek will remain closed through April 30, 2020. Further details relating scheduled events are listed below by date under the header, “March & April Updates.

 

Up a Creek is Closed until April 17th

     It was announced 3/27/2020 that Alabama Public Schools will not meet in school buildings again this school year. This means our hope for returning to a normal After School Care schedule will not happen again until August.  As we navigate these uncertain times, we will continue to try and do what’s right by our customers, support our staff, and to keep the business afloat. 

     In addition to school closure, a non-essential closure declaration for Alabama has been issued to include businesses with “Indoor Children’s Play Areas,” “Facilities Providing Child Day Care,” and “Activities on Commercial Play Equipment.”  The required closure will continue through April 17th.

     This is essentially an unprecedented worst-case scenario for a small business like ours.  All of our programs have come to a halt and there’s no clear insight into when these restrictions will be lifted and life can begin to return to normal.  However, we have no intention of closing Up a Creek permanently, and know this will all pass eventually. 

   Thank you for your ongoing support now and the support you’ve shown our family business during the past 8 years.  As we pull a plan together on how to proceed, we will continue to make announcements here on our website.  This situation continues to evolve daily and while there is talk of small business help on the horizon, it certainly isn’t here yet.  Thank you for hanging in there with us!


We hope everyone stays well!  We miss you all!

Melissa
