How to keep your child and our program safe: COVID-19 PROGRAM REMINDER

If a person in the home of the child/children is being tested, the child cannot attend the program before the results are returned.

If the child was exposed to Covid-19 and has to be tested, the child must stay home from the program and it must be reported to Nya Shrader, site coordinator. The following information will be needed if your child has been exposed and is being tested: Date of exposure, Date of test, and the results. We ask that you contact us as soon as possible in regards to exposure so that all necessary precautions can be made to keep our program healthy. This information is used to report to the department of Early Education and Care. If your child has any cold or flu like symptoms we ask that you keep them home until they are symptom free.

Due to our Covid-19 Regulations by EEC, no one outside of those allowed (enrolled children & staff) are allowed in the program area. 

For drop off we ask that you walk your child/children in as far as the main lobby where a staff member will be there to direct your child to the program. 

For pick up we ask that you call (413)448-8258, ext.24 for the direct program line, and a staff member will bring your child/children to the front lobby. OR you can walk to the front door where the desk staff will ask you who you are picking up, and they will radio to the program for your child to be brought down. In the evening our facility hosts programs for other youth, and for that reason we can’t allow parents into the lobby area for pick up time. We apologize for any inconvenience.
