Building Access

Currently building access is limited to one caregiver from each family at both pick up or drop off. Please keep the time in the building brief and limit time spent in the classroom.

Daily Screenings

Before entering the building all persons temperature must be less than 100.4. Daily screening questions are done upon arrival on the communication app. After absence, the student must remain symptom-free, and medication-free for 24 hours before returning.

Face Coverings

Starting Monday, June 13th, 2022 masks are once again a requirement. Masking is an option for parents/staff/children over the age of 2, but mandatory for anyone over 6.   Seeing faces is greatly beneficial psychologically, and imperative for language and social development. Anytime Austin Public Health declare we are entering a medium or higher, we will return to mandated masking on campus.

Hand Washing

High priority is placed on frequency and proper technique of handwashing upon arrival and throughout the day for staff and students (infant and older).

Snacks

Snacks are served by staff after washing hands and wearing gloves. No sharing of food between children is permitted.

Playground / Gym

Class visits to the playground or Gym are rarely shared with other groups of children. From day to day, the space is cleaned and sanitized.

Toys

All toys, manipulative, and equipment are systematically cleaned and sanitized throughout the day and in between uses.

Surface Cleaning

Our center’s shared surfaces and spaces are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized throughout the day with frequent deep cleanings from a disinfectant fogging spray.

Vaccinations

Getting vaccinated prevents severe illness, hospitalizations, and death. Unvaccinated people should get vaccinated and continue masking until they are fully vaccinated. With new variants, this is more urgent than ever.

During this time of extra precaution, Upbring Schools provide increased separation of groups with minimal group interactions and sharing.

Children have ample room to move, learn, explore, and enjoy healthy fresh air while keeping within the most up to date Covid-19 health and safety requirements.

Our highly qualified and caring staff members go above and beyond for our students and their families in delivering a clean, safe, and healthy learning environment.

Safely navigating the post-Covid-19 world of early learning
