First Release: July 15, 2020   |   Updated August 12, 2020


 

These are the procedures that will be implemented that directly affect the Toddler/Preschool classroom:

  • Preschoolers and toddlers will not be required to wear face masks.
  • The toddler and preschool rooms each have their own sinks and bathroom facilities. Touchless soap dispensers will be installed in these areas.
  • Parents will be directed to the Lower Parking lot for arrival and dismissal. 
  • Arrival and dismissal for toddler/preschool/kindergarten will be through the preschool playground (there are separate external doors for the toddler and the preschool/kindergarten rooms). 
  • Parents are required to wear face masks/shields during arrival and dismissal if they exit their vehicle.
  • Parents may walk their child(ren) into the playground area but are asked not to enter the classroom.
  • Parents may come to the office if necessary, but in general are not allowed in the rest of the building. Please access the office by parking in the Upper Lot and using the Main Entrance.
  • As per usual, lunch will be in the preschool room (or outside). We will still have Pizza Mondays; pizza will be delivered to the homeroom. Taco Tuesdays will be postponed until further notice.
  • In general, we do not foresee toddler or preschool students to be interacting with anyone outside their cohort other than their specials teachers.
  • Specials teachers (Spanish, Music) will come to the preschool room. They will be required to wear face masks/shields and will “scrub in and out” when arriving/leaving.
  • PE will be held outdoors as much as possible; however, in inclement weather, our gym is acceptable capacity-wise.
  • Only a limited number of non-essential adults are allowed in the building. Face masks/shields are required for all visitors entering the building. 
  • No large group events will be held, such as back-to-school events, etc. 
  • Friday Morning Gatherings for Lower School will be postponed indefinitely.
  • Daily After Hours and Before Hours on Late-Start Thursdays are by reservation only. To limit capacity, we urge parents only to use these services out of necessity.
  • We will have fall Parent-Teacher Conferences either in person with face masks/shields and/or via Zoom.
