Tentative Plans for the 2020-2021 school year in regards to COVID 19:

The COVID-19 crisis may make you wonder if it is safe to send your child to preschool.  Below is an outline of our current plans to ensure that our program is as safe as possible for you and your family.  Please note that our plans may change as more information becomes available or circumstances change.  Our plans may be different from the school district because we are considered a childcare center as opposed to a school and follow different rules and guidelines.

Current plans:

  • Our maximum class size of 20 students will be split into two classes of no more than 10 students.
  • Kids will be dropped off and picked up from their classroom, but families will enter opposite ends of the school.
  • Snacks will be prepared in separate kitchens by the teachers.  Snacks will be individually packaged whenever possible.
  • Classes will alternate their time on the playground and will not be outside at the same time.  They will enter the playground from separate doors.
  • We already have very good cleaning procedures in place, but whenever necessary, we will increase our level of cleaning.
  • We will rely on parents to take temperatures every day before school starts.  We will have thermometers on hand as well.
  • The handwashing procedures that we have in place will remain the same – wash hands before entering the classroom with soap and water for 20 seconds.  Also wash hands before and after eating and after using the restroom.  Staff and volunteers must also practice these procedures.
  • We will not require children or staff to wear masks.  But if you want your child to wear a mask, they may.  Keep in mind that it’s hard to eat a snack with a mask on.
