Steps we are taking for teachers, students and families
In the past we found vinegar to be a safe and effective cleaner, however we currently use Lysol, bleach, hydrogen peroxide and other cleaning products to sanitize bathrooms, kitchens, tables, door handles, all eating areas, nap mats, shelves, and class manipulatives.
The Work Exchange Program (in class volunteers), field trips, kids night out, interns, volunteers, tours, etc....
We meet with 'Good Mornings' from a distance, at the front door and walk your child to class. At this time we will sign your child in through Kinderlime.
When students arrive they wash their hands for 20 seconds, We check temperature and look for signs of good health. We are teaching the importance of social distancing and students practice this during work time, line up and when using the bathrooms.
Parents and the school provide unopened snacks, fruits and vegetables to the hallway. We wash foods and prepare for classes. Unlike the past students use a non reusable paper product for eating their snack. We no longer use sponges during eating times and for class clean-up.
We no longer serve Pizza Wednesday, use plates or bowls, and cloth napkins. Students bring lunch from home, and eat lunch outside in groups of 12 to 1 teacher. Please provide all utensils your child needs for eating their lunch.
If you have submitted a sunscreen authorization- please provide us with spray sunscreen, labeled.
Nap time includes hand washing and toileting for each student. Blankets and sheets go home each Friday to be laundered.
If pick up is before 3:00 we will have your child ready at the front door for you. Parents picking up after 3:00 please enter the building, signal the teacher and wait for your child. Please practice social distancing with other parents and teachers.
If you are enrolled at Madrone and not currently attending, let us know your plan to return to school. Invoices for the new school year 2020/2021 go out on May 1st and due by May 15th. Let us know your summer plans by May 15th. Thank you
Help your child continue hand washing at home. Talking about the importance of social distancing, will help students understand seeing others in masks and gloves. The practice of reliance allowing your child to care for their self-care empowers their sense of belonging.
