As with many things post-pandemic, it has been a struggle to try and find enough OWL instructors to run our Middle School OWL program. There has been no in-person training for new instructors in the New England region since before lockdown, and the online training is very hard to get into. It took 3 attempts to get our first volunteer in, and 4 attempts for our second. That second training won’t wrap up until the end of February, which doesn’t really leave us enough time to run the full program before school gets out for the year.
We will begin planning for OWL this February with a Zoom meeting – any parents or volunteers who are interested in attending are welcome. I will be reaching out with specific meeting info to families and volunteers in the next week or so. We’ll discuss the possibility of a spring/summer program, but as that could be challenging for many families, we may be looking at an early September start. More info coming soon.
