Starfish Operations in Response to COVID-19

A Special Message For You

 

Greetings Starfish Community.

 

First let me say how thankful and excited I am to have the opportunity to lead Starfish and  its mission to inspire, prepare and encourage academically-promising high school students facing unearned adversity for college and career success.

 

As the Indianapolis community, our State, and Nation take steps necessary to address COVID-19 pandemic, the Starfish Board, executive leadership team and staff place the highest value on the health and safety of our Scholars, Mentors, Parents, and Supporters.  We know you have questions and I want to personally assure you that we are taking a proactive approach to protecting our greatest assets, YOU.  

 

In doing so, we are also committed to continuing to serve and support our Scholars, Mentors, and Parents with the highest level of service. 

 

Effective, Monday, March 16th, all members of the Starfish Staff will work remotely.  It is our intention to reopen our office on April 6, 2020.

 

Scholars, Mentors, Parents, supporters, and other stakeholder groups will have access to staff and receive the highest level of service and engagement during this period. We will implement the following measures to continue our service and commitment to you by:

  • Conduct virtual meetings via Google Hangouts conferencing
  • Coordinate in-person meetings on a case-by-case basis
  • Maintain daily telephone and email communications
  • Respond to inquiries generated through Chronus and provide updated information in the Chronus
  • Connect Scholars and Scholar families to resources, if needed

 

We will continue to monitor this situation on a daily basis and keep you up-to-date on the latest developments.  We thank each of you for your continued support as we work to support teens who may face additional barriers associated with this outbreak.

 

Best regards, 

 

Kimberly N. Bostic
