PARSONS, Kan.—The Parsons SKIL Resource Center office will be closed to the public starting Thursday, December 24, 2020 through Monday, January 18, 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns, said SKIL President/CEO Shari Coatney. SKIL’s six branch offices, its Parsons Assistive Technology for Kansans and K-Loan offices will remain open, she said.
Coatney said some staff will be working from home, while others will be in the building. From 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday-Friday, there will be someone available at SKIL to pass out the personal protection equipment kits that have been made up for direct support workers (DSWs).
“It is important for everybody to stay safe,” Coatney said, “and sometimes these drastic measures are the only way we can do our part in ensuring others’ safety. We are hopeful that 2021 will bring us a much healthier and more prosperous year. We sincerely regret any inconvenience that this may cause our customers and DSWs. We wish everyone a Happy New Year and look forward to the future.”
