Menlo Children's Center closure

Dear City Council Member,

I’m writing to express my frustration with the city-run after school
program at Menlo Children’s Center. Unlike previous years, the program is
opening the 3rd week of school on September 3rd, 7 work days after the
start of school on August 22. This is obviously a major inconvenience to
the working families who rely upon this service.

As far as I can tell, this was a planned event which could have taken place
at any time. The entire summer is vastly better time for a shutdown since
there are a multitude of day camps and alternatives to MCC. Importantly,
no such alternatives are available during the school year. Many of us now
have to leave work early for a full week and half even though we’ve
enrolled in an after school program.

It’s unclear to me how a decision like this, so divorced from the needs of
the people being served, gets made and approved, but I’d hope that some
part of the city administration would be motivated to prevent such poor
decisions from happening in the future.
