What We're Doing To Ensure Your Child's Health

Our new routines for drop-off and pick-up are to ensure everyone's safety. 

 

Drop Off:

* When you arrive for drop off you and your child are required to stand outside of the door, a staff member will greet you and your child and assist your child to their designated classroom. If you wish to enter the building you will have to take a COVID-19 health screening and have your temperature taken, once you're in the building you are not allowed beyond the gated area, unless there is a scheduled appointment.

* Your child's temperature will be taken every morning before entering fully into the building. If your child's temperature is 100 degrees or higher we will not be able to provide care for that child until the temperature is gone. 

* Parents will have to answer COVID-19 questions every morning.

Parents are not allowed to leave until their child's temperature is taken and COVID-19 questions are answered. 

 

Pick Up:

*When picking up your child you are required to stand outside the door. After you ring the doorbell a staff member will come to greet you and then they will bring your child to you.

Social Distancing

 We teach our little ones about the importance of social distancing, which is practiced throughout the day.

Sanitizing

High-touched areas and objects such as tables, chairs, door handles, toys, playground, etc are sanitized regularly throughout the day daily.

Illness

Admittance will be refused to any child that is ill. No child will be accepted with a temperature that exceeds 100 degrees, recurring vomiting or diarrhea, runny nose or crusty eyes, or unexplained rash, cough, shortness of breath, and allergy-like symptoms. BOL has a 48-hr. return policy with a written doctor’s note stating that the child is not a threat to the other children or the staff. The child must be clear of any symptom and fever free before returning.

 

 

Children should be excluded from the school setting for the reasons outlined below.

  • Note: The following list covers most common illnesses but is not inclusive of all reasons for exclusion. Illness that prevents the child from participating comfortably in program activities

  • Illness that results in a greater need for care than faculty can provide without compromising the health and safety of other children

  • Fever (100º axillary [armpit], 101º orally, 102º aural [ear]) accompanied by other symptoms such as lethargy, irritability, constant crying, difficulty breathing, diarrhea, vomiting

  • Exposed to anyone diagnosed with Covid 19

Any child with a fever of 101º will be excluded and should receive medical attention as soon as possible.

Hand Hygiene

Frequent handwashing will help prevent the spread of infection and germs. Staff and students are required to immediately wash hands upon arrival and times several throughout the day. A hand sanitizer station is available upon entry.

Food Prep

All of our staff are required to wear masks and gloves while handling food.
