Our Covid-19 Response
The Room to Grow is open for business and continuing to play our crucial role in your child’s development. We have taken numerous steps to protect our employees, students, teachers, and parents from the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19). We are actively tracking the pandemic and are making decisions based on guidance from health authorities.
We are taking the following steps to ensure a safe environment.
HEALTH AND SAFETY: We continue to follow the guidance of our licensing body and the SF Department of public health. We will keep enrolled families informed as new information or directives are received.
COHORTS: Cohort size restrictions were lifted in late Spring, so we will continue to operate as a single cohort (of no more than 26 children). With such a small school community and the continued support of our families and staff, we can continue to keep our school safe and healthy.
MASKS: The CDC and City health department continue to require masks on all individuals over the age of two while in a congregate setting. We will be monitoring the data to determine when we can comfortably allow kids to be unmasked outdoors.
ARRIVAL AND PICKUP PROCEDURES: Parents may walk their children into the school to help them get settled for the day. They may also come in to pick up at the end of the day. All adults, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask while at The Room To Grow.
SNACK AND LUNCH: Snacks will be prepared by a teacher and pre-portioned in individual bowls that will be passed out once kids have washed their hands and been seated. Lunch is provided by the family, and a list of food allergies will be shared before the start of school. It is our expectation that every family will find alternatives to any foods that present a danger to a member of the community.
FIELD TRIPS: We look forward to neighborhood walks, visiting the library and farmer’s market as well as other community destinations with small groups of children. Our licensing agency as well as CDPH have lifted the restrictions on the use of public transportation, so we can look forward to field trips this year. Parents will be informed well in advance if their child is planning to join a group outing, with the exception of short, impromptu neighborhood walks. Fully vaccinated adults may join outings – proof will be requested. Children and adults must remain masked during the entire time they are on public transportation.
