Specialized FAQs for 2021-2022

We would like to address questions you may have regarding how school will look for the 2021-2022 year.  Please read on to find answers to the questions we've been asked.
 
What will our learning model look like?

We plan to return to full in-person learning in the fall.  We know this is an ever-evolving situation and we will adapt our programs as needed.  We are actively making plans for in-person classes, as well as contingency plans in the event that we will need to start the year in a hybrid model.

What measures are you taking for health and safety?

For in-person classes and events, we will be implementing the following measures:

  • Temperature checks and health screenings/attestations upon arrival to class every time we meet

  • Increased sanitation of shared supplies, high touch surfaces, and bathrooms

  • Social distancing practices

  • Masks will be required for adults and children. Masks are not recommended for children under the age of 2 years by King County Public Health.

  • Hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes and soap/water readily available everyone coming into the preschool.

  • Only enrolled parents and children (no visitors or guests) will be allowed to attend in-person classes


What are the parent's responsibilities/commitments to the school?

Parents are required to work in the classroom one class per week, attend a parent education meeting once a month and participate in fundraisers for the school.  We have re-evaluated our needs for parent participation on committees and are changing our focus to the Board of Trustees.  We are requiring parents to participate in either the Safety/Facilities committee activities or on the Board of Trustees.

 

All families will also participate in the following:

  • Indoor cleaning and sanitizing

  • Outdoor cleaning and maintenance

This will be done on a rotating basis to ensure we are meeting the State Dept. of Health standards.
