COVID-19

07/23/2020
Update: We remain open and are following the same health guidelines as mentioned below.  All persons are required to wear masks when dropping off & picking up children.

With the severity of COVID-19 things seem to be changing on a daily basis. We will continue to keep you updated on our plans here on our website and our Facebook Page.

To limit the exposure as much as possible in an attempt to reduce the spread of the virus, we are asking parents to drop off their child(ren) in the front entryway from 6:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Please note: we will not be able to allow children to arrive after 10:00 a.m. so please plan accordingly. A staff member will take your child’s temperature upon arrival.

When picking up your child(ren) between 3:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. please come into the front entryway and wait there until a staff person can retrieve your child(ren). If you need to pick up your child(ren) before 3:30 p.m., please call the office at 651-457-0042 before arriving so we can have your child(ren) ready to go home. 

AN IMPORTANT REMINDER TO NOT BRING YOUR CHILD(REN) IF THEY ARE SICK.

We are following the MN Department of Health cleaning and sanitation guidelines and implementing other safety measures with guidance from our health nurse. We frequently and thoroughly clean and sanitize all items and rooms, especially high touch areas (doorknobs, light switches, counters, tables, and chairs, shared toys, and equipment) using the recommended COVID-19 bleach solution. 

IF YOU, YOUR CHILD, OR ANYONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD HAS BEEN EXPOSED TO COVID-19, OR IS BEING TESTED, BE SURE TO NOTIFY OUR OFFICE.

During this difficult time we need to try our best to keep things as normal as we can for children and help them to feel safe. Resources to help with that will continue to be added to this page.
