Capri Response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) Pandemic

March 16, 2020

PCYC (including the Capri, PYC Arts & Technology High School and our out-of-school-time program) will be closed to the general public starting on Tuesday, March 17 through April 5. (Our re-opening date of April 6 is tentative. Any changes will be promptly announced here on our website.)

Our staff is working remotely during this time, with few exceptions. They’ll continue to be available via phone and email throughout the closure.

If you have general questions or need more information, please call 612-643-2000. If the phone isn’t answered by a person, listen for your options to reach staff members in each of our programs directly.

Capri programming and other general updates will be promptly announced here on the website as well.

Take good care dear friends, neighbors and colleagues. May kindness and hope be present for you during this difficult time.
