COVID Update: Everyone on site (including all children) wear masks, and has been since May of 2020. We do drop off outside with temperature checks, and all families have agreed to a “community health agreement” to keep our families, students, and teachers safe. We provide Covid testing regularly for staff who are interested and helped staff get vaccine appointments in the first wave of group 1b. Lastly, we are still keeping our group size small (less than 10 children per classroom) to ensure we can provide some distance, less stress, and safety for our teachers.
