Getting Read to Return!
Hello families we are preparing and getting ready for our reopening of Brookeside Learning Center. We are getting kid and COVID ready.
We are excited to have your little ones join us for our health and fun days of learning.
In order to ensure safety I am reminding you of drop off procedures that are required by HHSC to keep every healthy
.HHSC Child Care Licensing (CCL) urges all current providers to immediately implement the following guidance, which is consistent with the new requirements:
Prohibit any person except the following from accessing an operation: operation staff; persons with legal authority to enter, including law enforcement officers, HHSC Child Care Licensing staff, and Department of Family and Protective Services staff; professionals providing services to children; children enrolled at the operation; and parents who have children enrolled and present at the operation.
Before allowing entry into the operation, screen all of the individuals listed above, including taking the temperature of each person upon arrival at the operation each day, and deny entry to any person who meets any of the following criteria:
A temperature of 100.4°F or above;
Signs or symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as a cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, and low-grade fever;
In the previous 14 days has had contact with someone with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19; is under investigation for COVID-19; or is ill with a respiratory illness; or
In the previous 14 days has travelled internationally to countries with widespread, sustained community transmission. For updated information on affected countries, visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/travelers/index.html.
Require pick up and drop off of children outside of the operation, unless you determine that there is a legitimate need for the parent to enter an operation.
Ensure that each child is provided individual meals and snacks. Do not serve family style meals.
We will sanitize your operation, wash hands diligently, and have staff members and children stay home if they are sick. They can only return with a doctor's note. Exclusion is key!
Thank you for helping us stay healthy and safe at BLC.
We are all ready for our great outdoor adventures!
