Daily Drop-Off, Pick-Up, & Student/Staff Health Screening
Student Arrival & Pick-Up will be staggered to reduce grouping of students.
Morning Drop-off: Students enrolled in Before Care will drop-off between 7:00-7:30 a.m. Students enrolled in our general day school will be dropped off between 8:00-8:10 a.m.
Afternoon Drop-off: Students enrolled in our general day school program will be picked up between 3:00-3:10 p.m. Students enrolled in our After Care will be picked up between 5:00-6:00 p.m. If a student needs to be picked up at a different time other than what has been outlined, parents must coordinate this with the School Director.
Curbside Policy: Staff will greet parents curbside with a temporal thermometer. Both staff and parents must have on a facial covering. Staff will take and record the student’s temperature on our RCA Confidential Temperature Log. Individuals from outside the school will have limited access to the students, including parents during student drop-off/pick-up.
o If the student’s temperature exceeds 99.0 degrees fahrenheit, the student’s parents will be asked to park for a 15-minute temperature re-check. If the temperature continues to exceed 99.0 degrees after the second check, the student will not be admitted to school that day. In order to reduce inaccurate temperature reads, please ensure that your child has not been sitting on a seat with a warming device.
Daily Health Screenings: Parents will complete a daily health screening questionnaire & sign in sheet. Parents will answer the following questions: 1.) Has your child felt feverish or had a temperature of 100.4 degrees or greater in the last 72 hours? 2.) Has your child had any of the following symptoms in the last 72 hours: sore throat, nasal congestion, runny nose, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, headaches, body aches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell in the last 72 hours? 3.) Has your child had any close or prolonged contact with anyone known to have COVID-19 or is considered a person under investigation for COVID-19? 4.) Has your child received any fever-reducing medication in the last 72 hours?
Class Crews- Students will then join their pre-assigned “Class Crew,” which is a group of up to 14 students with 1 teacher, totaling a separate group of no more than 15. “Class Crews” will be constructed by grade level. “Class Crews” assigned by the School Director. When possible, “Class Crews” should remain separate throughout the school day as much as possible. Students shall maintain 6 feet of physical distance as often as possible. When distancing is not possible and safe to do so, students will be requested to wear a face covering. Staff will wear face coverings when safe and in close contact with students, parents, and other staff. Please note that there may be times where the nature of the instruction requires the facial covering to be removed so that teachers and students can clearly communicate with one another.
Daily School Procedures for Reducing Chance of Infection
COVID-19 School CHANGES FROM PREVIOUS YEARS
We are anticipating regular typical school operations with the exception to the following areas described below. Fortunately, most of our activities are held on our 8-acre schoolus, so the main activity adjustments we will include operating theme-based activities using smaller “school Crews,” increasing our outdoor activities, social distancing during activities, and eliminating any large group activities that would otherwise require everyone to be in close, confined spaces.
Regular school activities will still include swimming, water play, weekly themes, sports, arts & crafts, games, Wheel Wednesday, playground time, nature trails, specialty classes, and academic time. school Crews will follow a rotation schedule throughout the day to ensure social distancing compliance. Shared areas will be cleaned in-between usage of “school Crews.”
Primary Program Changes
-Lunch: students will pack their own lunch and snacks this year. Current health guidelines recommend the elimination of buffet food service options, shared serving utensils, and eating lunch in larger groups (such as the cafeteria during previous school seasons).
o It is currently recommended that students eat lunch amongst their “school Crew.” We know that everyone will Miss Chef Lori’s famous, delicious hot meals. As we enter new COVID-19 recovery phases, these recommendations may change. At this point, we will consider re-establishing the hot lunch program.
o In the meantime, we are working with the Summer Meals program to see how they might be able to provide bagged lunches for students.
o Please plan to pack your student’s lunch daily. student’s lunches should be ready-to-eat and not require heating. Please be sure to include a cold pack inside your student’s lunch box.
-Field Trips- Field trips are not prohibited and are currently available for students ages 7 to 12 yrs. old; however, we are still awaiting our scheduled field trip venues to re-open. We will keep you updated on the status of trips.
o If we are able to attend our field trips, students will be asked to wear their masks while being transported to the location.
o All transportation vehicles will be disinfected before and after each usage.
