Screening:

In order to make the screening process run smoothly, parents (and teachers) will be given a daily self-screening form to complete before they enter the program. This form will list the following symptoms:

Fever of 100.0 degrees or above, chills, cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fatigue (accompanied by other symptoms), headache, a new loss of smell/taste, new muscle aches and any other signs of illness.  On this form, we will also ask if, in the past 14 days, they have had close contact with a person known to be infected with COVID 19.  

 

At this time, the designated screener will “visually” screen the child, looking for signs of illness that may include: flushed cheeks, rapid or labored breathing, cough, congestion/runny nose, fatigue and excessive fussiness. If any of these symptoms are present, the child will not be allowed to attend school that day.

Parents and staff will be required to sign a daily Attestation Form with regard to potential exposure to COVID 19.  Parents will also have to attest to the fact that they have not given their child any medication to reduce a fever. Health Check responses will be signed, recorded and filed daily.

 

INDIVIDUALS WHO DECLINE TO COMPLETE THE SCREENING QUESTIONNAIRE WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO ENTER THE PROGRAM SPACE

 

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.
