  • Gloves worn by staff and volunteers during potty training assistance and diaper changes;

  • Disposable changing table liners; and

  • Social distancing during check-in and check-out procedures.

 

Please note, our school closure and / or quarantine policy has changed for 2021-22.  In the event of any positive or close contact cases, the school’s families will be notified via email and directions for further action, if any, will be provided.  Meadowbrook Congregational Church, our landlords, will also be informed.  Individuals will not be identified by name, for his / her privacy.
