Face Coverings/Masks

Face coverings are required by adults in the center at all times. Children should wear masks with a focus on developing their tolerance to ensure they wear them at all times. This is a learning process and will be approached in this way.

Minimizing Contact

Consistent student groups with consistent teachers will be assigned together whenever possible. Floating positions will be minimized to ensure minimized contact. Contact Tracing is an imperative part of each day. The sign-in sheet will identify the staff and children assigned to a room. Any individual who enters the room or interacts with the group must sign and time stamp the sign-sheet.

Enhanced Cleaning Schedule

A clear timeline and schedule is provided to the maintenance team, ensuring that each room/space is effectively cleaned between each group and throughout the day. Daily sign-offs are required to timestamp and confirm that the cleaning assignments are carried out. Teachers will also support aspects of transitional wipe-downs. There will also be ‘top of the hour’; wipe downs of surfaces and devices for the teachers during instruction.
