2021-22 School Year Information

  • Student Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures

    At this time parents/guardians will not be allowed inside the buildings and will be required to wear masks while waiting to drop off and pick up their child.

    Drop-off (Health and Safety Checkpoint) will be located outside your child’s classroom door between 7:50-8:15 a.m. After 8:15 you must check in at the front office for drop-off.

    Each morning at the Health & Safety Checkpoint:

    • The child’s temperature will be checked and questions can be asked/answered.
    • Children will be required to sanitize their hands before entering the school building. (Hand sanitizer will be available at each drop-off/pick-up location.)
    • Parents/guardians will need to acknowledge that their child does not have any COVID-19 symptoms and has not been in contact with anyone showing symptoms in the past 14 days before leaving their child.
    • A Pre-K staff member will sign in and sign out your child everyday for attendance. (Parents/guardians will complete a form at Orientation to give that staff member permission to sign in/out on your behalf.)

  • Gross Motor Skills

    Playing is IMPORTANT and a big part of our Pre-K program. In fact, we have 60 minutes of minimum gross motor play everyday!

    Here is how we will ensure your child's safety while they play outside:

    • We have adjusted our daily schedule so that fewer children are on each playground at one time. 
    • Students will take water bottles that are labeled with their names so that they do not have to share a water fountain or risk spreading germs.
    • Teachers carry backpacks while on the playground that have first aid items like band aids, instant ice pack, gauze, ect.
    • Playground equipment will be sanitized throughout the day and disinfected daily with a commercial grade bleach approved spray.

    • Each center has a maximum number of students that can play there at a time, ranging from 2-4 students.
    • Students will rotate through centers for a designated time. Centers will be cleaned daily.
    • ANY toy that is put in a child's mouth or sneezed on will be removed from the center until that item can be properly sanitized by staff.
    • Items like dress-up clothes and pillows will be sanitized and laundered weekly.
    • Every student will have individual and labeled containers for play-dough, sensory items, and art/writing utensils like crayons, markers. (This will ensure that we are allowing students to play and still be creative, while also trying to maintain the cleanest play spaces possible.)

  • Rest Time

    All Pre-K classrooms have 1 hour and 15 minutes scheduled for rest time.

    Here are the rest time procedures to ensure your child's safety:

    • Cots will be at least 3 feet apart (if not more)
    • All children will alternate directions in which they lay down so that it limits the direct contact and adds more distance between children's faces.
    • Sheets/Blankets are laundered weekly. (If a COVID-19 outbreak occurs then sheets will be removed immediately and bagged and laundered the same day.) 
    • Cots will need to be sprayed with a sanitizer daily as needed throughout the week.
    • Cots will be sprayed and disinfected when changing out sheets.
