Social distancing reminders are posted throughout the center. At this time, we utilize a 3-foot physical distance protocol. However, it may change to 6-foot distance at any time.
Upon entering the building, the children's belongings will be sanitized. The children will each have a plastic shoe box container for their change of clothes and a plastic shoe box container for their school supplies. Each classroom has a water bottle holder for the child's storage of their water bottle throughout the day which will be sent home nightly. Children may fill their water bottle in the drinking fountain, but not drink directly from the fountain.
Visitor access to the center is limited. Anyone experiencing any symptoms of a Communicable Disease will not be permitted inside the building. Any student or staff member experiencing symptoms of a Communicable Disease will be immediately isolated and must leave the center within one hour of a parent/guardian being contacted.
The center will follow all SCHD and CDC protocols for the quarantine and isolation of staff and students as indicated in our center handbook.
