At this time all monthly programs at our campus are continuing as scheduled. We will be immediately taking steps to alter our operations to greatly reduce risk of virus transmission. We will be working within the current CDC guidelines that aim to slow the spread of this disease.
We feel that given that our classes are 100% outdoors and we have a ton of space to spread out that the risk of virus transmission is very low and therefore will continue operations. That being said, ultimately the decision is in the hands of individual parents and families as to whether to send your kids to class. If you do not feel comfortable with them participating in programs right now please feel free to keep them home. While available data shows that this virus poses a very low risk to children it has the potential to impact the elderly and people with other medical conditions in extreme ways. If your household includes an elderly person or someone who is medically vulnerable we encourage you to take additional precautions and keep your child home for the time being.
Starting immediately we will be ceasing use of any shared gear or equipment. This includes bandanas. We will also be avoiding games that require students to touch one another, will be creating more space between students during circle time, and will be operating in smaller groups and reducing time spent as together as a whole program group.
Hand washing at class will become even more frequent and will include (at minimum) hourly hand washing and washing before lunch and snack. We may use hand sanitizer in lieu of hand washing as available.
Students who are showing signs of flu-like illness need to stay home from class. This includes a fever of 100.0 or greater. In fact, if anyone in your household is exhibiting flu like symptoms we ask that you please keep your child home from class.
Instructors will have access to a no-touch infrared forehead thermometer at class and will check the temperature of any child at class who is showing any signs of illness. Any child with a fever of 100.0 or greater will be separated from other children and sent home.
Earth Native instructors will be held to the same standards as students and we WILL NOT have instructors that show any signs of sickness working at class.
