COVID-19 Protocols Update

Starting May 1, we will require COVID vaccination in all of our Grades K+ up programs

Mask Wearing for kids ages 2-5 years old:

Mask wearing is still required in programs with kids ages 2-5, like our Wildlings and Forest Preschool programs. We will continue to monitor the pandemic, guidelines, and survey our registered families to understand their mask wearing preferences. Due to the dynamic nature of the pandemic, we may change the guidelines at any time if our Board deems it best for safety reasons.

Mask Wearing for kids in Grades K and Up:

If kids in Grades K+ programs, like Nature Club, Archery, Hunter Gatherer, and Wild Summer, are vaccinated and proof of vaccination is submitted to us electronically, then mask wearing is optional. Please keep in mind that due to the dynamic nature of the pandemic, we may change the guidelines at any time if our Board deems it best for safety reasons.

 

Starting in May, all programs for Grades K+ will require proof of COVID vaccination. 

 

At Drop Off, everyone's temperature will be taken. If someone's temperature is above 100 F, they will be asked to step aside and sit under a shaded cool area, drink some water, and cool down. If after 10 minutes their temperature still continues to be above 100 F, they will be unable to attend the program that day.

Attendance Procedures

EXPOSURE: Exposure means that your child was within 6 feet of another child who tested positive, regardless of mask wearing or vaccination status. This also includes any member of the household was exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

 

If your child is fully vaccinated, they were exposed, and now they are symptomatic (any cough, fever, loss of taste/smell, nausea) - please stay home from programs for 5 days. If they get tested on Day 5 and the result is negative, they can return to programs. If they do not get tested at all they should stay home for the full 10 days.

 

If your child is fully vaccinated, they were exposed, and they are showing no symptoms they can attend programs as long as they wear a mask. Please let us know so we can monitor mask wearing for your child in our program.

 

If your child is not yet vaccinated and they were exposed - please stay home from programs for 5 days. If they get tested on Day 5 and the result is negative, they can return to programs. If they do not get tested at all they should stay home for the full 10 days.

 

 

SYMPTOMS: If any member of the household begins showing any COVID-19 symptoms (fever, loss of taste/smell, shortness of breath, etc) - we require the participating child or staff to stay home from programs for the entire time that person has symptoms. We highly encourage them to get a PCR test.

 

 

POSITIVE TEST - HOUSEHOLD: If any member of the household tests positive for COVID-19 - we require the participating child or staff to stay home from programs for 10 days. We highly encourage them to get a PCR test.

 

 

POSITIVE TEST - PARTICIPANT: If within 5 days of last attending our program, a participating child/staff tests positive for COVID-19, any child or staff who was in a group with that person would be notified and would then be considered to be exposed. Our exposure procedures above would then be followed.

Cancellation Procedures for programs ages 2-5 years old

If Wildlings or Forest Preschool has a student who has tested positive, the group that child was in would shut down for 7 days. All participants in the group who were there when the positive child attended, would need to get tested for COVID on day 5 after last exposure. If all test results come back negative by day 7, we will resume Wildlings or Forest Preschool. Full credits would be given for any missed class days.

Cancellation Procedures for programs Grades K+

If Nature Club, Hunter Gatherer, Archery, or Summer has a student who has tested positive, all non-vaccinated kids would need to stay home from programs for 5 days. If they get tested on Day 5 and the result is negative, they can return to programs. If they do not get tested at all they should stay home for the full 10 days. They will receive full credits for these absences.

 

Any vaccinated kids could still attend the program as long as they are showing no symptoms of COVID-19, however they would now be required to wear a mask for the next 5 days of program. If they get tested on day 5 of program and they are negative, they no longer have to wear a mask. Anyone who does not get tested on Day 5 would need to continue wearing masks until Day 10.
