Parents are asked to maintain social distance at Drop off or Pick up time.
Parents are to wait for other parents to clear the entrance area of the child care.

CLEAN AND PERSONAL HYGIENE
Our staff sanitizes and disinfects surfaces and objects that are frequently touched multiple times per day, especially classroom materials and areas.
Doorknobs, light switches, countertops, tables, chairs, cubbies, playground areas, and anything else that is touched by students are cleaned with a disinfectant that is sprayed and allowed to air dry as opposed to wiping down.
We use the cleaning products as recommended by the CDC or the Alameda County Health Department.
The sink, toilet, and handles are sanitized daily
Deep cleaning of the entire school premises is carried out once a week.
We are providing hand sanitizer in all classrooms and common areas, as well as soap and paper towels in all bathrooms and all classrooms with sinks.
Staff and students follow a routine of handwashing with soap and water OR use the hand sanitizer throughout the day.
PHYSICAL DISTANCING IN CLASSROOMS AND ON CAMPUSES
ACPHD’s guidance calls for maintaining six feet of distance between and among students.
it is permissible to relax the 6-feet recommendation if it ensures all/more students receive in-class instruction (e.g., if reducing to 5 feet allows for more practicable cohort sizes).
In cases where physical distancing needs to be relaxed, however, face coverings and cohort stability take on even greater importance.
It is also critical when students are entering, exiting, or moving around the school campus.
ACPHD’s health orders mandate that all school employees and all students wear a cloth or disposable mask at all times while at school - including when they are outside.
Students need to wear face covering over the mouth and nose.
Students need to bring an additional mask to school.
HEALTH SCREEN FOR STAFF AND STUDENTS
In order to limit the spread of COVID-19 among students and staff, all families and employees will be required to self-screen prior to arriving at school
Families will also need to fill out a form that asks about the child’s potential exposure to people with COVID-19 and potential symptoms. Students with temperatures of 100 degrees or higher or with symptoms of COVID-19, should stay home, notify the school, and seek immediate consultation with health care providers.
Staff will also visually screen for symptoms and symptomatic students will have their temperatures taken.
If someone in your household has come in close contact with an individual who is suspected of having COVID-19 or has a confirmed case of COVID-19, keeps your child home. Call the school and let us know, as we track this information for Public Health.
If the parent or any of their children are experiencing signs and symptoms of COVID-19 or have come in close contact with an individual who is suspected of having COVID-19 or has a confirmed case of COVID-19, they will be sent home, and not permitted to enter the school before satisfying the School's requirements for returning, which will be based on then-current guidelines of state and local public health officials
If we are notified that a YYLC staff member, parent, or child has tested positive for COVID-19 we will notify those who were in contact with that person immediately. We will take appropriate action within our building. A decision will be made regarding a classroom or building closure to allow for disinfection, based on the reporting as to time, exposure to others, etc.
We will Contact AUSD and Alameda County Public Health Department and let them know, email email@example.com or call 510-268-2101
