COVID-19 Precautions for 2020-2021 School Year



-All staff and children will have their temperature checked and recorded each morning before school. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 ℉ will not be allowed to come to school for 10 days unless a doctor’s note is provided assuring your child does not have COVID-19.

-Children must be fever-free for 72 hours (without fever-reducing medication) before returning to school.
-Children will wash hands/use hand sanitizer upon arrival.
-We ask that families report any incidence of ill health within the immediate family of our students.
-We ask families to report any incidence of unprotected exposure to anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
-All staff will wear masks while indoors and outdoors when not socially distancing.
-School will be held outside as much as possible through the fall weather. The exceptions to this are: naptime (for the youngest children), bathroom breaks and inclement weather.
-With proper ventilation in mind, we will have our windows open at certain times of the day. We are looking into the efficacy of ventilation systems.
-A staff member will accompany a child to the bathroom and clean the toilet and sink that the child used as they leave the bathroom. (We are looking to hire someone for this position so please let us know if you know of someone.)
-Handwashing will be supervised to ensure proper duration/technique.
-Hand sanitizer will be used outside.
-Doorknobs and heavy-use surfaces will be cleaned regularly.
-We are adding an extra cleaning day to our existing professional cleaning schedule.
-Meals and snacks will be eaten on separate towels/mats.
-Children will be working on their own work mat each day.
-Children will use their own supplies in school each day. 
-This is the latest set of protocols from the Indiana State Department of Health, which we will follow: ISDH COVID-19 School Guidelines
