September 2020 session
Following state and local guidelines, this fall we plan to resume our in-person Avenue sessions.
We hope you and your families have been enjoying the summer! After hearing from many of you, the Avenue executive team discussed options for this year’s program in light of COVID-19. We have taken into account all of your concerns, as well as the health and safety regulations in place, and we are excited to share our plan with you.
This fall, The Avenue will return to hosting each monthly session in person, at the usual locations of Highland and Murray Hill Place in New York City. All attendees (including Avenue staff, speakers, and students) will be required to wear a face covering during each session. Upon arrival, attendees will have their temperature checked and will be required to complete a brief questionnaire verifying that they have not experienced COVID-19 symptoms or interacted with someone experiencing COVID-19 symptoms in the past two weeks. Due to the social distancing and face covering requirements, we will be unable to offer a snack period for the time being.
For any of the monthly sessions, if your daughter is unable to attend because she is sick or is uncomfortable coming into the city that month, please contact an Avenue staff member, and we will be happy to send you either a zoom link to the speaker session for the day or a recording of it.
In light of this announcement, we are extending the early bird registration deadline to Tuesday, August 25. You can register online here.
We hope to see many of you at our first session on September 19 and throughout the year!
The Avenue Executive Team
