coronavirus health and safety measures

Onsite School Nurse

Our onsite school nurses lead our wellness efforts which includes keeping our school community as healthy as possible by ensuring our immunization policy and Kinderberry Hill’s exclusion guidelines are followed. Families regularly communicate with our nurses about their child’s health, immunization schedule, sudden illnesses, and medication administration. While our nurses do not diagnose, they provide guidance, potential action steps, and peace-of-mind.

Face Coverings

If a family requests that their child wear a mask, we would be happy to accommodate the request.

Touchless Check-In and Check-Out

We are now offering touchless check-in for drop-off and pick-up. This allows for more social distancing between families in the mornings and evenings.

Installation of Ionization Systems

We have installed an ionization system to help purify the air, kill viruses and bacteria, control allergens, and help prevent the spread of viruses.

Drop-off and Pick-up

Families are able to drop off and pick up their child at the classroom door. This allows families to have brief conversations with teachers and staff. We ask that families limit their time inside of our schools and remain socially distanced during high traffic times of the day.

On-site Health Screenings

Throughout the day, we may conduct health checks of children and staff. We will not be able to care for your child if they have a temperature of 100.4 F, or other symptoms outlined in our exclusion guidelines.

Increased Handwashing

When dropping off or picking up your child, we ask that you use hand sanitizer conveniently located in our school’s entryway. Our nurses and teachers role model and regularly oversee handwashing procedures throughout the day.

Health & Safety Training

All staff routinely practice our stringent health and safety practices, as well as additional COVID-19 measures.

Increased Sanitizing

We have enhanced our efforts to sanitize our classrooms, toys, playground equipment, and other high-touch areas.

Stay Home When You are Ill

To protect all children and staff from illness, we will continue to enforce our established guidelines of excluding children for illnesses.
