Primrose School of West Bellevue

The health and safety of our staff and the children entrusted to our care is our top priority. We are proud to maintain high standards of safety and cleanliness while maintaining a caring and nurturing environment where children can thrive.

Health & Safety Practices in Place

The key to maintaining a healthy & safe school environment starts with the diligent collaboration with our families and staff. It starts at home prior to coming into school. We require all families and staff to perform wellness checks at home looking for any signs of illness to include temperature checks verifying any signs of fever. If a child, staff member or family member within the household has any signs of illness or a fever of 100 or greater, the child or staff member must remain home and follow the below protocols for returning to school.

Throughout the day, wellness checks are also performed so that we can address any signs of illness as expeditiously as possible and take swift action as needed. We have and will continue to work diligently to maintain a healthy and safe school environment by working together. https://www.bellevuedowntown.com/post/child-care-amid-a-pandemic-insights-from-the-primrose-school-bda-takeaway
