2020 JSP Jumpstart Cancelled due to COVID-19
For over 25 years, JSP Jumpstart has served thousands of children in the greater Chinatown community. We had recruited a great group of teachers and assistants who were looking forward to a fun-filled and academically enriching summer with your child.
During the past month with Illinois’ stay-at-home order in place, we have been exploring how JSP Jumpstart could continue. This week, Gov. Pritzker stated that the peak won’t be reached until mid-June. It would be impossible for us to provide a safe in-person program. We also considered a remote academic program as Pui Tak Christian School has developed an effective e-learning structure. While possible, we determined that training new teachers would be too challenging for a short program. Thus, we came to the sad decision not to offer JSP Jumpstart this summer. For more details, please see this letter.
