Here at Mt. Elizabeth Academy, we understand that entrusting your children to the care of others is a serious decision and one that parents do not take lightly. We continue to strive to ensure our families feel comfortable leaving their children in our care.
We regularly and systematically clean and sanitize our outdoor play areas and classrooms. Since Covid-19 we have increased our cleaning routines to more thoroughly disinfect and wipe down all areas using non-toxic cleaning supplies. In addition to using approved sanitizing and cleaning agents several times per day, we also disinfect all classrooms and play equipment with our medical grade sanitizing wand, the Protexus Electrostatic Sprayer.
Students’ and teachers’ temperatures are taken before entering our center, using an infrared touchless thermometer. We have supplied all staff members with facemasks. Parents drop off children outside, and staff will bring children into the classrooms. No delivery or other adults will be allowed into the building. All classrooms will have nine or less students in order to provide a smaller class size and a safer environment for the children.
Students in each class have meals and snacks within their classroom. This limits the amount cross-classroom interaction. Every classroom in our center has its own bathroom, also limiting the amount of cross-classroom interaction. Handwashing activities throughout the day are included for each of our classrooms to ensure that the children’s hands are being regularly cleaned.
We are devoted to keeping our children, staff, and families safe.
Regards and blessings,
Ann and Rob
