Medora after-school program starting virtually


Staff Reports

Due to the dangers and risk with the current status of COVID-19, Blue River Services and Medora Community School Corp. are making changes for after-school programming.

According to a letter from Program Coordinator Kevin Terrell sent to parents, virtual after-school will be offered the first two weeks of scheduled programming, which is from Aug. 24 to Sept. 4.

“More information on how this will work will be announced and communicated to you in the upcoming days, but it will still involve lots of exciting activities for your children as well as virtual homework help,” Terrell wrote. “We hope your child will log in and join us every day after they get home to see what we have happening and/or just to say hello.”

As of now, in-person Reach for a Star after-school programming will start Sept. 8.

“So until then, your children will not be staying after school with us in person,” Terrell said. “There will, of course, be changes with programming and with safety protocols and procedures this year due to COVID-19, and these will be announced and communicated to you.”

Parents need to register their child or children for the program as soon as possible so staff can work on planning for the 2020-21 school year. That can be done online at

Plans due to the virus remain fluid, and the health and safety of children, families and employees will be the top priority, Terrell said.

Updates will be communicated via phone, email and the Medora’s Reach for a Star After-School Program Facebook page.
