Patrons of the PRYC,

We have been informed by the Pine-Richland School District that programs and classes are closed beginning Saturday, March 14th. The PRYC aligns with the recommendations made by the school district and for that reason the PRYC will close beginning at 8PM Friday, March 13th and until further notice. Our goal will be to monitor the ongoing changes with regard to the communications being sent from the CDC, Allegheny County Health Department and the Pine-Richland School District.

Pine-Richland Youth Center Pandemic Virus Action Plan


The following is the PRYC Plan for dealing with Pandemic Virus Covid-19.

We have been notified by the Pine-Richland School District that school is closed.

In alignment with the Pine-Richland school district, the RYF Preschool and the PRYC building are closed.

At such time the CDC or PR School District, whichever comes first, make the recommendation to resume business as normal, RYF Preschool and PRYC programs will resume operation.

PRYC Communication Plan:
The PRYC will communicate all closures and updates via mass email as well as social media (Facebook). The PRYC website will be updated with the action plan for the public to view as well as any updates/information.

RYF Preschool Operations:
The RYF Preschool has put in place a contingency plan to extend the school year by up to two weeks. This plan will only be put into effect if the PR School District resumes classes before the expected district June 3rd end date. The plan will supplement for each missed day, up to two weeks. The plan is as follows:
May 26th-May 29th
June 1st-June 5th
(The K-Prep/Plus Graduation date will be adjusted and communicated accordingly)

RYF Preschool Tuition:
If applicable, all paid March tuitions will be applied to the extended school year dates.
In the event of prolonged PR School District and RYF Preschool closure, which would extend through the remainder of the school year, the RYF Preschool contingency plan to extend the school year shall be void and all paid tuition from the date of the school closure will be prorated. Unused/paid days will be refunded via a check or credited to the family account. Prorated refunds will be issued after June 3, 2020. Tuition questions can be directed to Lisa Finn, Business Coordinator, at

RYF Preschool Extended Learning:
During times of missed school, the RYF Preschool will offer extended learning through Class Dojo. The Preschool Director will provide age level appropriate materials to assist parents with maintaining a positive and continued level of learning within the home. These materials are optional and serve to provide a continued connection between the RYF preschool and student. Parents should email the Preschool Director, Jennifer Nicotra at

PRYC Staff:
While adhering to the social distancing practices outlined by the Governor of Pennsylvania and the CDC, the Executive Director, Business Coordinator, and Preschool Director will maintain a limited schedule to continue the electronic business with hours based on the Executive Director judgement.

PRYC Renters:
All PRYC renters will be issued a phone call/email to discuss the closure. The PRYC will update the renter as soon as the PRYC closure has ended.

PRYC Rentals and Programming:
All PRYC rentals/programs/classes are canceled. Refunds or credits for any unused rental time will be issued. Cancelled classes will be rescheduled for a future date. If a class is unable to be rescheduled, a full refund will be issued.

We appreciate your patience and continued patronage.

All our best,

Larry Bracco
PRYC Executive Director
