IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE

Dear Legacy Families,

Protecting the safety and well being of our LEGACY community and the greater community is our number one priority at this time. Everyone here at LEGACY is thinking about those who may have been directly impacted by the coronavirus, in addition to the healthcare workers who are working tirelessly to care for all of us.

Last week we informed you of our proactive suspension of all LEGACY Center Based Operations though tomorrow March 20th. Today we are officially extending our suspension and our Center will be closed until further notice while we do our part to engage in social distancing. However, Program Directors are available to answer any questions you may have. We will continue to monitor the most current medical and governmental guidance available and will keep you informed. During our suspension, our Center has gone through a thorough and deep cleaning and it will be ready for all of you when you return. A special thanks goes out to our Maintenance Team, who have gone above and beyond to keep us healthy and safe.

Additionally, as of March 16 all LEGACY After-School Programs are suspended while the Philadelphia School District is closed. Which means this is a difficult time for many LEGACY families. As a non-profit partner to the City of Philadelphia, we are coordinating with the School District, the City’s Office of Children and Families and Parks & Recreation to get information out on meal service at safe spaces throughout the city.

These are uncertain and unprecedented times, but we will get through this together. Stay safe and healthy! If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact myself, Sanjin or Kat.

Once again, these are uncertain and unprecedented times and we appreciate your patience, support and encouragement. We will indeed get through this, together. Please stay safe and healthy!

Sincerely,

Ron Nano

President and CEO

Legacy is Temporarily Suspending all Center-Based Programming

Dear Legacy Families,

At this time, Legacy has no known cases of COVID-19, however, in light of the recent lockdown of Montgomery County we are choosing to be proactive and initiate social distancing by closing our facility for 1 week.

Beginning tomorrow, Saturday March 14, 2020 through the end of Friday March 20, 2020 all Center-Based programs and court rentals will be suspended. We will be constantly reevaluating the situation based on the most current medical and governmental information available and will keep you informed.

During our closure we will be deep cleaning and disinfecting the facility for the health and safety of our community. We hope to see you on Saturday March 21, 2020.

These are uncertain and unprecedented times, but we will get through this together. Stay safe and healthy! If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact myself, Sanjin or Kat.

Take good care,

Ron Nano

COVID-19 Precaution Update

Dear Legacy Community,
We are writing to update you on what we are currently doing in response to COVID-19. As always, our ongoing priority is for the health and safety of our students, families, and staff. At this time, Legacy has no known cases of coronavirus and we continue to take steps to help ensure the safety of the entire Legacy community. We have been disinfecting and cleaning all surfaces consistent with CDC guidelines and have installed hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the facility. Right now, all programming is on and our staff is continuing to deliver high-quality lessons and to support our students and maintain normalcy, but these are uncertain times. We continue to assess clinics, lessons, events and other activities on a daily basis in light of the most up to date public health and safety information available. Please stay connected through our website for programmatic changes and possible closings.
Additionally, please take the following CDC-suggested preventative actions to reduce the risk of developing COVID-19.
·          Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
·          If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
·          Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
·          Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
·          Stay home when you are sick.
·          Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands. If a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow and not your hand.
·          Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
As an extra precaution, parents may want to consider dropping off and picking up children before and after clinics and/or lessons.
If you suspect you are having symptoms of the current coronavirus, please call the PA Department of Health at 1-877-PA HEALTH (1-877-724-3258) and you will be directed from there.
For further information, we advise you to consult the following resources from the CDC and the PA Department of Health:

New Group of Rising Stars Come to the Legacy Center

Legacy is excited to introduce our 2019 novice class of Rising Stars! These eight new Rising Stars, Lana Rodriguez, Destiny Jones, Alandrea Lugo, Aaleah Smith, Israel Edwards, Ziyan Hemingway, Amylah Carter and Nafi Curtis were participants in either Legacy’s after-school or community summer tennis programs. This special group of players were chosen to participate in the Rising Stars program based on a talent identification process that included their growing tennis skill-set, a strong commitment level demonstrated through their consistent attendance, positive behavior, and parental involvement. As part of the program, our newest Rising Stars have been enrolled in Junior Tennis Clinics at our flagship Legacy Center. There, they also receive free semi-private lessons and educational and guidance support. We congratulate these special players on being selected as Rising Stars! New Rising Star,12 year old Destiny Jones, is most looking forward to improving her game, making some new friends and playing in her first tournament this year
