Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
As we continue to closely monitor the rapidly evolving developments in response to COVID-19, and following the guidance from local and state health officials, Allendale is prepared to navigate these challenging circumstances with everyone’s safety in mind. As always, the priority at the Allendale Association remains the safety and well-being of our clients and staff.
Governor Pritzker announced that in-person School instruction has been canceled for all Illinois schools through the remainder of the school year. Allendale will continue to implement remote learning instruction and therapeutic services through May 21, 2020. View our Remote Learning Plan here. If you have any further questions about school closure or remote learning, please contact your teacher. Messages can also be left at the school office by calling 847-245-6400.
Following guidelines regarding social distancing to further prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Bradley Counseling Center are currently closed. Our therapists will be providing phone therapy rather than in-person sessions — please call 847-356-6300 with questions. In addition, we are limiting all outside visits, including donations, until further notice. We will continue to monitor this situation closely.
While these times are filled with uncertainty, what is NOT uncertain is the strength of Allendale—of which you are an important part. Together, we represent the belief in community that has sustained us for more than 120 years. In the coming weeks we will all be challenged and will be called upon to help and support one another and the youth and families entrusted to our care.
Given the fluidity of this situation, please check back here to stay informed!
