Daily Preventative Measures

What we know is that like all other viruses the most effective way to reduce spread is to actively practice proper handwashing, cough etiquette and staying home when sick.

  • At all times, staff and students utilize appropriate hand washing and hygiene procedures.
  • Curbside or front door pick-up and drop off (procedures will vary based on the site).
  • Temperature and wellness checks of students performed at the door before students enter the building. Staff wear masks and gloves while performing screenings.
  • Daily temperature and health checks of staff.
  • Consistent disinfection of all high traffic surfaces (doorknobs, light switches, computers, phones, etc.) As a licensed childcare program, Just For Kids utilizes bleach solutions with specific concentrations required by Central District Health.In addition, we are using a stronger bleach concentration of 1000ppm for restrooms.Each JFK site is also spraying the Retaliate solution provided by the District’s custodial department at the end of the day.
  • Encouragement of social distancing throughout the day:
    • Centers are limited to specific materials which are then disinfected after use.
    • Children engage in centers in small groups.
    • Children are encouraged to stay arms’ length apart when lining up to go outside.
    • Students are spaced out at lunch tables for meal times.When weather permits, meal times will be held outdoors.
    • We have transitioned from family style service of meals to individual portioning of snacks.
    • Cloth masks available to staff and students to use when consistent physical distancing is not possible or as the individual feels comfortable.

What can you do at home?

Please continue to support your child and remind them to take these actions to help keep you, your family, and others healthy:

  • WASH, WASH, WASH YOUR HANDS! This cannot be promoted enough and is the most effective step towards preventing the spread of any virus.
  • Do not touch your face, particularly your eyes, nose or mouth. These are the most vulnerable areas to viral infection. If you must touch your face use a clean cloth or disposable tissue and wash your hands afterwards. We are teaching the children about this important step, please reinforce this at home and/or when in the community.
