Health & Safety Practices in Place

August 2020

We are pleased to announce the installation of a new air cleaning system called Global Plasma Solutions (GPS) in all 7 of our H-VAC units. We felt this investment was especially important during this current pandemic. GPS has recently confirmed results that their system is effective against Sars-CoV-2 (COVID-19).GPS’ NPBI technology works to safely clean the air inside industrial, commercial and residential buildings.

Other health & safety practices:

  • Requiring all adults to wear a mask or face covering when in the building
  • Temperature checks of all persons upon entering the building
  • Hand sanitizing stations at the front entrance
  • Limiting the number of adults permitted in the building (1 per child)
  • Social distancing practiced in our entrance and hallways
  • Requiring any children or staff with respiratory illness symptoms or fever to return home and stay home until fever free for at least 24 hours
  • Frequent disinfecting and sanitizing of high-touch toys
  • Frequent handwashing by children and staff, which is embedded in our curriculum and daily staff protocols
  • Training teachers on common signs of illness in children, and placing signage in every classroom to keep signs of illness top of mind
  • Daily laundering of crib sheets for infants; for older children, individual cots and blankets are provided for each child and laundered weekly
  • Ensuring appropriate teacher-student classroom ratios
