Best Practices 


In the past we found vinegar to be a safe and effective cleaner, however we currently use Lysol, bleach, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol and other cleaning products to sanitize bathrooms, kitchens, tables, door handles, all eating areas, nap mats, shelves, and class manipulatives. All towels are laundered three times a week, mats and carpets laundered biweekly and sheets laundered 


The Work Exchange Program (in class volunteers), field trips, kids night out, interns, volunteers, etc....


We meet with 'Good Mornings' from a distance, at the front door, collect snack, diapers, nap items and we walk your child to class. Sign in is done virtually through Procare on a tablet outside the front door


When students arrive they wash their hands for 20 seconds, We check temperatures 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. Student's sit distanced from others unless they are siblings during all snack times.


If you have submitted a sunscreen authorization- please provide us with spray sunscreen, labeled. Students play outside in the morning, after lunch and at the end of the day.


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.  Avoid touching surfaces or items in the building. If you must please wash your hands or sanitize. If you are ill or have any symptoms please wear a mask and or arrange alternate pick up. 

At Home

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 and distancing. The practice of self-reliance allows your child to care for their self and empowers their sense of belonging.  If you or a family member travel  out of the country, notify the school and quarantine appropriately before returning to school.


If your child develops a fever at school or home, stay home at minimum 72 hours until returning to school. If you, your child or family member become ill, please stay home until fully recovered.  Notify the school if a family member contracts Covid-19 or travels out of the state/country.
