Health and Safety Protocols for Childcare Sites

  • Childcare partners will follow health and safety protocols provided by the Public Health Department.
  • Childcare partners will do a health check for each student including taking temporal body temperature before allowing entrance into the site. If a student appears to be unwell or registers a temperature greater than 100F, they will not be admitted for childcare.
  • Only childcare staff and students attending childcare will be allowed in spaces during operation. Students will be separated into groups following the state health guidelines and kept in distinct spaces throughout care. Multiple spaces within each site will be opened to allow for the social distancing recommended by the Department of Health guidelines.
  • Childcare partners will be required to clean their supplies daily and/or between student use. 
  • Northshore School District requests that all supplies, chairs and tables be put away daily to allow for ease of custodial cleaning.
