Little Friends Update

This morning Little Friends gave an update on how they’re dealing with the affects of COVID-19. In an email they said they closed the Krejci Academy, the Bridge High School, the Mansion High School, and other programs last week as a result of the statewide stay-at-home order. Little Friends’ residential services are still up according to the press release as some students don’t have anywhere else to go. The tentative plan is to resume some programs on April 7, but the school is planning on that date to be pushed back as the coronavirus situation remains fluid.

Stay-At-Home Photo Contest

Though there’s currently a stay-at-home order you can still use your creative eye during this time. The Forest Preserve District of Will County has launched a Stay-At-Home Backyard Nature Photo Contest. Photos of critters, plants, or anything else nature related can be submitted for a chance of winning a cash prize. Full rules and details of the photo contest can be found on the preserve’s website.
