She claims the church is instead going to let Sequoyah School expand its footprint on the church campus at 301 N. Orange Grove Blvd.Neighborhood Unitarian Universalist Church said in a statement emailed to Pasadena Now: “A year and a half ago, the decision was made not to renew the leasing agreement with Fair Oaks Preschool based on the best opportunities for Neighborhood Church’s financial and congregational growth. We have been successful partners for 11 years and we have made every effort to support Fair Oaks in this transition. As the COVID-19 pandemic has interrupted normal operations, we have offered financial flexibility to Fair Oaks through June 2020 and will continue to support them as best we can.”Brown says she and her team have physically looked at 40 properties in a seven-mile radius of the school’s current location, closeby so as not to lose too many families currently enrolled, and have scoped out 100 properties online.“We did put in letters of intent for at least five properties, including one that was a Pasadena Unified School District property. And unfortunately we have not been able to secure a site through that process.”While the 18 months’ notice Neighborhood gave Fair Oaks Preschool might seem like a lot of time, Brown says a school would normally need three years to find a new site and move.She says the COVID-19 pandemic has made the search exponentially harder “because it changes the perspectives of landlords,” and because “our doors have been closed since March 15, our income has not been steady, so it’s created a big gap in our ability to, number one, serve our families, but number two, also be able to continue searching.”Fair Oaks, however, is reopening Wednesday, albeit for a small number of children from families of essential workers and people listed as exempt under the governor’s stay-at-home orders.Brown says before the pandemic 43 kids were enrolled in the preschool. That number has dropped to 30, but Brown says she expects only a handful of kids to show up starting Wednesday.“We are following to the ‘T’ the guidelines that are set into place from (the state) Community Care Licensing, the CDC, as well as the Pasadena and Los Angeles County health departments.”Brown says all staff and teachers will be wearing masks, and the children will be encouraged to do the same.“We will continue as a nonprofit as we search for a new location,” Brown said. “We are dedicated to continuing the search and hopefully reopening as soon as possible.” Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Allardyce: Carroll must be tough

Posted on

first_imgWest Ham manager Sam Allardyce accepts England forward Andy Carroll faces a big mental challenge to recover from his latest injury setback – which is normally suffered by “ballerinas and basketball players”. Press Association Sport understands Carroll has travelled to Europe – boarding a plane for Belgium on Friday morning – to begin a rehabilitation programme which the club hopes will not require an operation, but equally no time frame has been set for a possible return to full match fitness. While Allardyce is confident the 6ft 3ins former Newcastle frontman will recover from the setback, the Irons boss understands there are personal battles for him to overcome ahead of a season which, if all goes well, could end with playing for England at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. “It is a big challenge for Andy because he has got to be mentally really tough now,” said Allardyce. “He has to be really, really focused and we have got to make sure we keep his spirits up whenever we get the chance because it is a lonely place to be when you are injured, and certainly for the length of time he has been injured. “This will make him feel pretty low for a while, but he has to battle through that and we will look after the psychological side as well as the physical side. At the end of the day it is just about getting him fit as quick as we possibly can.” Allardyce revealed the nature of Carroll’s latest fitness problem was linked to the centre-forward’s style of play. “What you find on my research is that this is an unusual injury for footballers. It probably more revolves around people like ballerinas and basketball players because of the bounding side of it,” the West Ham manager said. “What caused Andy’s injury in the first place is his leap – he leapt up high for a ball against Reading on the last day of the season and landed (awkwardly on his foot). That is what happens with basketball players because they are 22 stone and 6ft 7ins, it more occurs in those sports. The 24-year-old – signed on a permanent £15million deal from Liverpool after a loan spell last season – had looked to be on his way back to full fitness following an Achilles problem. However, he then broke down during a training session earlier this week with a foot injury when he aggravated the plantar fascia tissue which supports the arch, and is so now set for another extended spell on the sidelines. “Once it has healed, it is about managing it then. Eventually it will be gone, but there is still a period of time after the injury has healed where he will get some discomfort through the foot. We will do all we can to eliminate that as quickly as possible.” Carroll had been selected by England manager Roy Hodgson for the friendlies against the Republic of Ireland and Brazil at the end of last season, only to be forced out by another untimely injury. While the latest setback is not expected to hamper his international chances over the longer-term, Allardyce maintains the focus must first be on getting the forward fighting fit for club duties. “I wouldn’t even speculate on that (Carroll’s place in the England side) because the important thing for me is to get Andy Carroll fit and playing for West Ham United,” Allardyce continued. “He had forged his way back into Roy’s plans at the end of last season, but then unfortunately had to report that he had picked up the (Achilles) injury, otherwise he would have travelled with England. “It is a big year for Andy to be at West Ham scoring goals and also trying to get himself into the World Cup squad, if we (England) qualify.” Press Associationlast_img read more
