Monday night, the Simple Room in Greenville issued this statement, making a change to their previously announced plans to remain open on a limited basis:

โ€œ We loved seeing our students today. (3/16/20) ๐Ÿ’™

After continued conference with the Bond County Health Department on the latest developments, we have decided to close to care for the health of our students, their families, and our community.

We will continue to update our operation status on social media and our website.

โ€œWhen I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, โ€˜Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.โ€™โ€ – Mr. Rogers

May we all strive to be helpers during this time.โ€

The original story follows…….

The Simple Room in Greenville issued the following statement Mondayโ€ฆ

After prayerful consideration and consulting with the Bond County Health Department, The Simple Room WILL be open 1PM – 3PM Monday through Friday for students who are currently registered. We are monitoring the situation carefully and will share any changes as they occur.

ALL people entering the building will have their temperature taken; any with a fever will not be admitted. We have increased our daily cleaning / sanitation efforts and are following hand-washing recommendations.

We ask that students and volunteers who are sick or at-risk to stay home until further notice. Next weekโ€™s Student Talent Show has been postponed, as is the Donor Dessert scheduled for March 29th.

As people of God, we are called to be wise but unafraid. Please join us in prayer as we seek to be salt & light to the world around us.
