COVID-19 Resources & Information

The health and safety of our children and staff, and their families, is of the upmost importance to us. Since the onset of the pandemic, we have made several important upgrades. 

 

We have been gifted Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization Units for each classroom in the school by a Joyful Noises family. These units have been proven to inactivate 99.4% of SARS-CoV-2 pathogens and 90.0% of Coronavirus pathogens. These units also are known to reduce airborne particulates, reduce airborne allergens and

neutralize odors. To learn more about the units, watch this video.  

 

We use a hospital-grade disinfectant spray nightly, also proven effective in combating these viruses. Each day our cleaning occurs in the morning, midday and at night, and as needed in all high touch areas. Children and staff wash hands multiple times daily as well as use hand sanitizer when not able to get to a sink. 

In accordance with the Department of Early Education and Care guidelines, we have also updated our policies to include a comprehensive pandemic, epidemic and school closure plan. 

Additionally, we encourage you to read and use the following resources at home to help your children through this sensitive time.

  1. Minimum Guidelines for Reopening (Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care)
