HYRD UPCOMING EVENTS
Along with the Town Manager, and other Town of Halifax Offices, the Halifax Youth and Recreation/Parks Department has always put our community's safety as a top priority. As details regarding the coronavirus pandemic continue to be released and change, we have made the decision to CLOSE HOPS PLAYGROUND Immediately, effective March 14th, 2020.
Also, in accordance with Governor Baker's Stay-at-home advisory, ALL Halifax Youth and Recreation Department Programs and Events have been temporarily suspended, the Halifax Elementary School Gymnasium will remain CLOSED in accordance with the Halifax Elementary School's Schedule and the Massachusetts State Department's recommendations.
In the meantime, we are still busy working to remain engaged in our community. One way that we have been able to do this is through our Facebook Page, so please be sure to "follow it" and set your notification settings to "standard" so that you will get the most recent information that we post throughout each day.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time.
