Hello Gateway Families,
On Wednesday, July 22nd, Governor Eric Holcomb announced that he will sign an executive order requiring Hoosiers to wear face coverings in most public settings, beginning Monday, July 27th. They have continued to monitor the data and have seen a concerning change in some of the state’s key health indicators. Hoosiers have worked hard to help re-open the state and we want to remain open. By masking up, we can and will save lives and slow the spread of COVID-19.
A mask or other face covering should cover the mouth and nose and may be:
• sewn by hand
• improvised from household items such as scarfs, bandanas, and t-shirts
The executive order will require people age 8 and up to wear face coverings at:
• Public indoor spaces, commercial entities
• Public transportation and vehicle services like taxi/ride share
• Outdoor public spaces when you cannot socially distance from people who are not in your household
Face coverings will be required in schools for students in the 3rd grade and up, faculty, staff, volunteers & anyone else in schools.
Masks are also required for co-curricular & extra-curricular activities with exceptions for strenuous physical activity.
The face covering executive order will have exceptions for medical purposes, disabilities, exercising, eating & drinking.
The state will approach enforcement of the face covering requirement with an emphasis on education. A penalty can be levied under the authority of state law. Local governments may impose more restrictive guidelines.
Once signed, the executive order will be found here https://in.gov/gov/2384.htm.
Starting on Monday, July 27th, all individuals ages 8 and up will be required to wear a face mask at Gateway. This includes those dropping off and picking up children, therapists visiting Gateway to work with children, Gateway staff and volunteers. Face masks must be worn properly, covering the individual’s nose, mouth, and chin. Individuals will be permitted to remove their face masks during mealtimes and when getting drinks.
When the executive order is signed and additional information is available, we will update our families and staff.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
We have openings! Call today to schedule a tour.

What Our Children, Parents & Care Givers Say About Gateway
“I love that she is cared for by a licensed, Level 4 Paths to Quality Provider.”
“My kid has higher behaviors and Gateway will work with you as long as you are willing to work with them. Amazing care and amazing relationships are formed.”
“Gateway is amazing. They treat both my girls with love and care. I am so grateful to have a safe and trustworthy daycare, so I can work for my family. I even have a daughter with verbal Apraxia and does not speak. Her two teachers nurture this and have the patience that I sometimes lack. I think of Gateway as a support system.”
