We've spent time making sure the entire classroom is properly sterilized to prepare for this summer. Below are the newest changes we've made to ensure the safest and cleanest environment for the kids.

 

  1. For the time being, we are not going to be partaking in any field trips. Instead, we will be staying in our classroom with limited guest visitors each week.

  2. We will be implementing a new curbside drop-off policy to keep the number of people entering and exiting the classroom to a minimum. Parents can drop-off and sign-in their kids with our staff downstairs and will then be escorted by a teen volunteer to the classroom. 

    • If you'd like to see the classroom, we have a virtual tour available and/or we can arrange a special brief tour when students are not there

  3. Before entering the classroom, all staff and students will have their temperature checked at the curb. If there is any indication of a fever, they will not be allowed to join for the day.

  4. As soon as they enter, kids will be instructed to wash their hands.

  5. Masks will be worn by staff members at all times. Kids will be strongly encouraged to wear masks as well; those who can not provide their own will be offered a kid-size washable mask to purchase or borrow.

  6. At the end of each free-time, toys will be washed.

  7. There will be a limited number of toys offered this summer; tiny or difficult-to-wash toys will not be available.

  8. We will ensure that there are at least three thorough hand-washing sessions for the entire class each day.

  9. Social distancing will be strongly encouraged and we will have proper markers on the floor to keep everyone 6 feet apart during class time and lunchtime.

  10. The staff will be required to wear gloves when passing out snacks or lunch.

  11. All water and snacks will be served in one-use, disposable plates/bowls.

  12. If and when there is a “fossil”/object to be passed around, the staff will be required to wear gloves and will hold the item allowing only one at a time to touch - they will properly sanitize the “fossil” with alcohol after each touch.

  13. All used tools (eg. scissors) will be washed after projects.

  14. Many projects and experiments that we have done in the past will be altered to avoid multiple students touching the same objects/putting their hands in the same place at the same time.

  15. Hand sanitizer and wipes will be offered regularly for anyone who needs it.

  16. As usual, we will start our days outside and we’ll be adding more shaded areas for afternoon classes and free play.

  17. The bathroom will be cleaned at least once every hour.

  18. The classroom will be sterilized at the end of each day.

 

Please remember Science Teacher Sarah has been very strict about hand washings and other safety rules in the past, so our team is well-practiced at keeping your children safe and happy.
