These include but are not limited to:•All RAC parents and staff are required to complete an online Daily Health Screening Jot Form each morning (received by RAC before your child/ren are admitted into care). This is to ensure that all children are entering the childcare center free of all COVID related symptoms.•RAC Parents and all non-essential visitors are not permitted into the school/childcare centre, except in an emergency.•All RAC staff and children are required to increase the frequency of hand hygiene by washing their hands with soap/using hand sanitizer frequently throughout the day and upon arrival into the Centre.•All RAC staff and children are required to wear masks inside the school and childcare centre throughout the day. Staff must also wear a medical mask and face shield or goggles while in the school building (except when working alone). Both staff and children may remove their mask outdoors, except when they cannot maintain a 2 metre/6 feet of distance.•RAC will place children in their RAC room/cohort, based on their school day classroom. As a result, there are 3-6 school classrooms that feed into one RAC Room/cohort•RAC staff undertake enhanced daily cleaning and disinfection of surfaces, toys and high-touch areas throughout the day and at the end of their shift. Additional cleaning and disinfection of building high touch surfaces are coordinated with the school caretaking staff.•RAC staff will monitor all children for any signs of illness throughout the day. If a child has a symptom of COVID-19, the parent will be called and asked to pick up the child and siblings as soon as possible or within the hour.• A RAC Supervisor will follow up with all individuals to determine the reason for any unplanned absencesOur hours of operation have been modified until further notice: 7:45am – 5:30pm on instructional days and 8:00-4:30pm on non-instructional days to accommodate all of our new protocols.For additional information on our response to COVID-19, please email email@example.com.
