How we keep our classroom healthy

We know parents do their part by keeping sick children home from school.  Teachers and staff do their part by following the guidelines published by the Oregon Department of Education: Early Learning Division and the Oregon Health Authority.

 

Teachers are fully vaccinated and wear masks in the classroom. 

We have added a portable HEPA air cleaner and UVC room sanitizer both capable of handling the large size of our classroom.

Our daily schedule has been changed to better separate our two groups of students.  The 4-year-old class meets on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. and the 3-year-old class meets on Thursday and Friday.

We follow the cleaning guidelines provided by the ODE: Early Learning Division.

Student Safety

We take your child's safety seriously. Some of the safety measures we take include:

 

 Only students and staff are allowed in the classroom.  

Our exterior doors are locked throughout the morning and only unlocked at 9:00 am and 11:30 am.

Children are dismissed one at a time to a waiting caregiver.

All teachers and staff have a background check and are CPR certified.
