Due to low enrollment and in hopes of keeping labor costs down, we have changed our hours to 7:00 AM - 5:30 PM. As things begin to return to normal, we will adjust our hours back to 6:30 AM - 6:30 PM. We have let our parents know, however, that we are here for them. If something comes up and they need extended care either in the morning or the afternoon, we will help them. We simply ask for a 24 hour notice.
In order to limit the risk of exposure to the Coronavirus for our students and teachers, we are not allowing parents or other adults to enter the building at this time. We are escorting the children to their classrooms in the morning and retrieving them in the afternoon while the parents remain outside. We are also taking temperatures of all children and teachers at the front door before they are allowed to enter.
Our cleaning crew from Office Shines is still coming each evening to clean the school after we close. They are using a one step hospital-grade disinfectant that is a cleaner, sanitizer, fungicide, mildew stat, virucide, and deodorizer. This disinfectant is being used on all sinks, toilets, doorknobs, counter tops, floors, furniture, desks, and more. Our teachers are also taking turns wiping doorknobs and light switches during the day. They are continuing to sanitize toys and surfaces as they normally do. All of our hand-washing sinks and bathrooms are also being disinfected by Enviro-Master every other week. When things pick up again, we will return the frequency of this service to weekly.
We are trying to extend our teaching to our students who are staying home. We are emailing information to our parents, preparing learning packets that can be picked up, and some teachers are hosting Zoom meetings with their students. Also, our Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Wiles, has been working very hard to make sure our school-aged students are completing and turning in the work assigned by their teachers. We are keeping our kiddos busy! If you would like more learning materials, please let us know.
Give us a call at 281-997-8333 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to help!
