Dear Fitness University Parents:

I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy!  I know these are trying times.  I have two kids at home myself and I know they are itching to get back to “normal” life.

As you know, the current stay-at-home order is set to end on May 4th.  Fitness University is supposed to begin on June 23rd.  I am hopeful that we will be able to start on time, as long as the current order to stay-at-home ends May 4th and the restrictions on social gatherings are lifted.  Another factor is that Governor Sununu has dedicated Nashua South High School as a field hospital should the need arise.  If the high school is being used as a hospital, we will be unable to use the track for Fitness University.

I am closely monitoring the situation and will keep you all posted on the Facebook page. At this time, I am not going to open registration.  However, I will update everyone and open registration after May 4th, as long as the stay-at-home orders and restrictions on social gatherings are lifted. The health and safety of the children and the community is of the utmost importance and we will only host this program if it is safe to do so. Fitness University may look different than it has in the past, but I’m hopeful that we can at least get the kids outside for some sessions this year!

In the meantime, encourage your kids to stay active!  And remember to social distance and wash your hands!
