Regarding JN’s “Teachers stage walkout, religious groups respond,” May 2, 2018: In anticipation of the recent teacher walkouts across the Valley, I assumed I would juggle my job to be home with our daughter until the walkouts ended — but then we received an email from the Valley of the Sun JCC two days before the walkouts happened. The J was planning for the walkouts and would provide coverage for affected kids. This was such a relief! We, like most families, didn’t know until the 11th hour if school would resume each day and The J was there for us and so many other families.

The J created a dedicated, efficient and easy-to-use website to register for “walkout camp.” Even though everything was last minute, Assistant General Manager Kristina Brown always sent emails about what to expect the next day and when registration would open, if needed. She and the staff at The J managed all of this while finding staff to care for the 100-plus kids, organizing field trips with transportation included and much more. The only downside was that our daughter had so much fun at The J that it was hard to get her to return to school.
