Daily health checks and screening

Before coming into the school each day, children and staff will have their temperature taken to make sure they do not have a fever (100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher) or other symptoms of illness. Drop offs and pick ups are done at the entrance and visitors are not allowed inside the classroom to minimize the risk of exposure.

Nano Septic touch point skins

We have installed NanoSeptic skins in high traffic public touchpoints. Powered by light, NanoSeptic surfaces utilize mineral nanocrystals which create a powerful oxidation reaction. Working 24/7, the surface continually oxidizes organic contaminants. 

Electrostatic Sprayers

All our classrooms are cleaned daily using Electrostatic sprayers. Unlike the conventional spraying methods, electrostatic sprayers apply a positive charge to liquid disinfectants as they pass through the nozzle. The positively charged disinfectant is attracted to negatively charged surfaces, which allows for efficient coating of hard nonporous surfaces. The electrostatic sprayers house revolutionary innovations that provide a powerful tool to attack microbes and decontaminate facilities more efficiently and effectively than ever before. We follow CDC recommendations for keeping surfaces free of germs. This includes cleaning and removing disinfectant from toys before infants and toddlers play with them.

Other

  • Small Groups - We have formed cohorts with fewer children in each group. Your child will have limited amount of contact with other children and staff. 

  • Protective gear - Our staff is required to wear cloth face coverings and we encourage children age 2 and older to wear cloth face coverings. 

  • Time outside - Groups regularly spend time outdoors to help reduce the spread of the virus. Outdoor play equipment is properly cleaned between each classroom's use

  • Handwashing - classrooms practice handwashing before and after outdoor play.

  • Meals, snacks, and naps - Children are physically distanced during meals, snacks, and naps.

  • Drop-off & pick-up - We encouraged staggered pickup and drop off to help avoid contact between groups of staff and children

Please call us at (805) 824-1700 to discuss the health and safety policies that we have implemented to keep everyone in the school safe during this time.
