New Policies

The full policy is found in the Parent Handbook and upon request  Please read through your Parent Handbook, if your child is enrolled. If you are a different family member or a friend of the family and have the approval to visit with a child onsite, please call ahead. New Policies are as follows:

  • Class sizes are reduced to 10 children per class.
  • Sanitizing and cleaning will happen all throughout the day, just as before.
  • Staff will wear smocks, face shields, and gloves, when necessary.
  • Children will receive temperature checks and visual wellness checks at the door every morning.
  • Children who show signs of illness and/or have a temperature of or over 100.4 will be sent home for 24 hours.
  • Families who mask illness with Tylenol/Ibuprofen will be asked to quarantine their child for 2 to 4 days and will receive education packets to be completed from home.
  • Unless prior approval, parents/guardians will not be permitted into the building for drop-off/pick-up.
    • Please remain at the door, respecting Social Distancing of 6 feet or in your vehicle, for your time to sign your child into school.
    • Check child folders at the door and we ask for a hasty departure so that all families have time to sign their child in/out.
