John and Jen here checking in with our families again! We hope this latest message continues to find you safe and in good health during these challenging times. Everyone in the Giant family remains healthy and eager to connect with all of you again soon.
The last two weeks have been surreal. To say we have been riding a wave of emotions is an understatement, and we know all too well that most of you are dealing with your own harsh blows to reality on a daily basis as well. Our hearts go out to all of you and can only hope that each passing day brings us one step closer to the end of this altered "norm".
We are now reaching out with our best attempt at a plan. Because each day brings something new, it is very difficult to make any sort of definitive choices, but we must all continue to live life to the fullest and John and I must continue to run the business as best we can. In that light, we want to share with you where we are coming from and where we intend on going. To whatever extent necessary, every dollar we have is pledged to the recovery and rebuilding we know will need to happen. At the moment, our business has trimmed every non-essential expense and is paying as much as it can to as many staff as it can while still servicing the rent, utilities, and insurance payments. To come back strong (which means staying current with rent and retaining our amazing teachers and staff) requires careful budgeting and you can help our cause significantly.
As you know, tuition is normally charged on the 25th of the month. Our last communication stated we would not be billing April tuition as normal. Instead, we have arranged three options for you to consider. Please check your personal email for specific details.
