Pick Up Procedures

Hula hoops on the lawn will have your child's belongings in them. Wait by their hula hoop. We will walk your child outside one at a time. If you will be early for pick up, text Crissy.
It is recommended to change your child's clothes after school.
Will wear clean face masks and clean clothes each day.
Will use the same (if not more) hand washing times as the children.
Will steam clean the floor, vacuum rug, disinfect toys and surfaces.
Will wipe down outside tables, benches, trikes and cars, and any other item that may require it.
Will still perform the routine cleaning of the school that we do every day.
Children will be encouraged to play outdoors most of the day. Our trees provide a lot of shade, but we ask that sunscreen be applied at home in the morning, and a hat worn by your child. Bring a water bottle, two changes of clothes, sunscreen and lunch. Diapers and wipes if needed. Leave toys at home.
According to CDPHE, open child care facilities must ensure the guidelines provided by the CDC and CDPHE are implemented to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Both the CDC, CDPHE and BCHD continue to update their webpages with guidance on cleaning, preparedness, closure and much more. These public health resources remain the best source of information to ensure the safety of children and staff.
