What COVID protocols to expect during our Summer Program 2022:
Last summer proved to be a successful venture into pandemic life. We will continue many of our protocols from Summer 2021 and the 2021-2022 School Year. Here is our plan as of January 2022:
We will limit our classrooms and split the groups when indoors.
Are all trained in COVID prevention and a majority have worked in many of the programs we have offered since the pandemic began.
All students and staff wear face masks when indoors. While outside during water play, lunch, enrichments, etc. face masks are not required.
All staff and students are asked to provide a copy of their vaccination card. This helps us to evaluate the program needs on a weekly basis.
We continue to practice social distancing when applicable indoors and spend most of our day outside. When we are unable to maintain the necessary distance, teachers note where each child sits for tracing purposes.
Staff uphold all of the guidelines from the CDC and EEC. We keep the windows open in the classrooms as much as possible and there is also nightly sanitization of every classroom and the common areas.
Several times a week, we hop on a bus to go on a field trip or local excursion. Children are strategically spaced out on the buses, windows are opened, and the bus is sanitized before boarding. We will also continue visiting places that are outside (beaches, harbor islands, local ponds, spray parks, etc).
