Upbring Schools were proud to stay open and serve children of essential workers during the onset of COVID-19 crisis. We now have care for all families. In response to the need for additional health and safety precautions, we have put the following proactive protocols in place designed to keep all our students, families, and teachers safe.
| Building Access
Currently, building access is limited to students and authorized Upbring staff. Only parents, guardians or community members require permission from campus administrators before entry.
| Daily Screenings
Before entering the building all persons temperature must be less than 100.4; Daily screening questions are done at the door, or completed on the communication app. After abscence, the student must remain symptom-free, and medication-free for 48 hours before returning.
| Face Coverings
Masks are required to be worn over the mouth and nose at pick up and drop off for all adults. Upbring Staff wear masks throughout the day. Children over the age of 2 may wear a mask provided by their parent.
All sheets and personal items are washed daily to minimize the spread of germs and virus. Children’s cots are placed as far apart as possible, and the children lay head to toe.
| Personal Items
All students will be given a tote bag for personal items brought to and from home. Parents should wash their tote weekly.
| Hand Washing
High priority is placed on frequency and proper technique of handwashing upon arrival and throughout the day for staff and students (infant and older).
Prior to attending all staff and students along with members of the student’s immediate household have not traveled to high-risk areas or hot spots (countries or states) in the past 10 days.
To help avoid virus and germ transfer, Upbring Staff and students have been asked to designate a pair of shoes only to be used for school.
Snacks are served by staff after washing hands and wearing gloves. No sharing of food between children is permitted.
Class visits to the playground or Gym are not shared with other groups of children. Between uses the space and equipment is cleaned and sanitized.
All toys, manipulative, and equipment are systematically cleaned and sanitized throughout the day and in between uses.
| Surface Cleaning
Our center’s shared surfaces and spaces are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized throughout the day with frequent deep cleanings from a disinfectant fogging spray
During this time of extra precaution, Upbring Schools provide increased separation of groups with minimal group interactions and sharing.
Children have ample room to move, learn, explore, and enjoy healthy fresh air while keeping within the most up to date Covid-19 health and safety requirements.
Our highly qualified and caring staff members go above and beyond for our students and their families in delivering a clean, safe, and healthy learning environment.
