Our Enhanced Learning Environment
We are dedicated to opening our doors to learning with the health and safety of children, families and staff as our top priority.

Social distancing measures will be in place. Classroom setup and routines will be established for individual play and learning. There will be restricted use of shared materials and toys will be disinfected between uses by children. Class sizes limited to the capacity of 10 to 12 students per room depending on the age of the children and size of the classroom. "Normal" classroom capacity would be 14 to 18 students.
Parents and essential visitors will be encouraged to remain outside of the building or in the front hallway/office area. This is due to the recommendation of limiting the amount of contact within a space. Parents and visitors will not be allowed to visit classrooms until further notice. The Seesaw app will be an important source of communication in providing snapshots of your child's day in the classroom. Email, phone and communication notebooks will also be used.
