COVID-19 Policies & Procedures

YSCCC safety protocols are based on the American Academy of Pediatrics (www.aap.org) and the CDC guidelines (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/child-care-guidance.html) which will be enforced when we return on September 7th. The following steps will be implemented to help slow the spread of COVID-19:

  • Drop off and pick up will be at the front desk.

  • ALL individuals who enter the facility will be REQUIRED to wear a mask indoors. With the exception of eating. (Mask breaks will be taken outdoors OR in an isolated setting.)

  • Children ages 2 and up will be REQUIRED to wear a mask indoors with the exception of eating and sleeping. (Mask breaks will be permitted outdoors or in small groups).

  • Appropriate masking accommodations will be made for students with special needs.

  • Please be sure to pack well fitted masks for your child and leave a few extra. We will be working with our students to help reinforce mask wearing by practicing, modeling, and using resources like social stories and picture schedules to increase success.

  • Children will be required to wash their hands upon arrival and departure.

  • Daily Temperature and COVID symptom checks will be performed at drop off.
