Teachers will wear masks when unable to social distance (at least 6 feet). This includes pick-up, delivery of children, and when in communal areas.
Children will remain in the same classroom throughout the day as much as possible.
We will take temperature checks throughout the day. Any child or staff with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher will be sent home. Child or staff member is to remain home for three days.
Health checks will be recorded on Brightwheel.
Children and staff will wash hands throughout the day including upon every entrance to the classroom (start of day, after recess, etc.).
No parents, staff, or volunteers other than ECLC staff will be allowed into the school wing with the exception of approved vendors such as cleaning, AC repair, pest control, etc. All vendors will be asked to wear masks if staff and children are present.
At this time, children are not required to wear masks. Teachers are required to wear masks when not able to social distance.
All classes have been supplied with hospital grade disinfectant.
All high touch-points such as door knobs, light switches, pens, etc. will be disinfected throughout the day.
Parents/Guardians will be required to wear masks in car-line during pick-up and drop-off and when waiting at the front door. Parents/Guardians are expected to remain six feet apart during these times.
All staff and families of the ECLC agree to act responsibility outside of the ECLC. This includes maintaining social distancing and wearing a mask when in public spaces. The ECLC reserves the right to terminate a staff member or family for any irresponsible action that puts the health and safety of our community at risk.
Anyone (students, staff, and visitors) who is sick (any fever, respiratory, or gastrointestinal symptoms) or believe they might have COVID-19 should stay home and separate themselves from other people in the home as much as possible. They will be excluded from school until they can answer YES to all the following questions:
- Has it been at least 10 days since you first had symptoms?
- Have you been without fever for 24 hours without taking any medicine for fever?
- Has it been 24 hours since your symptoms have improved?
All rules are subject to change in light of new information.
