We hope that you and your families are taking time to enjoy the positive attributes of this never-before-seen time in all of our lives. As promised, all employees should have received a direct deposit today, including wages for the most recent pay period (March 8 - 20, 2020).
As stated in the previous message, services will resume immediately when the school districts permit students to return to school. At that time, all current employees will return to their normal schedules. And per our previously established policies, employees will only receive compensation for services rendered. In the meantime, you are welcome to apply for unemployment benefits until you are able to return to work.
Online payroll services (ADP), including pay stubs and income verification will still remain available while before and aftercare services are paused. At this time, no changes have been made to the summer camp schedule. Should you have any questions, please free to reach out to Crystal or Mike.

Thank you for all that you do on a daily basis for Magic Minds, Inc. In response to government mandates, all child care services are paused until further notice. All child care services and employee schedules will resume the moment Baltimore City and Howard County school districts reopen for students. Until then, we will enforce our current payroll policy: Employees will receive compensation for services rendered, only.
We recognize that this may present a hardship for our employees, and we want you to know that we share the weight of this unexpected hardship. Magic Minds, Incorporated is a non-profit organization. Essentially this means that all money coming into the organization for goods and services goes back out to expenses, without leaving a "profit" for the business. That said, we do not charge our families when we do not offer services. While payroll is the only expense that directly affects you, we have many other expenses (rent, insurances, BG&E, etc) that are still required, despite the crisis. Thus, we are looking into ways to alleviate the hardship of the organization, as a whole, including that of employee compensation.
On Friday, March 27, 2020, employees will receive compensation for any services rendered during the week of March 9th. Please feel free to check this page as often as possible for updates. We will do our best to keep you informed as we make decisions in the midst of this rapidly changing world crisis.
