Health and Safety
We’re open! We’ve made our home even safer so you can get out of yours. Phase is committed to giving your family a safe place to create a new normal. The safety and well-being of our students, families and staff is our highest priority. We have been and will continue to follow the information and guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) as well as the department of public health. We are continuing to monitor the situation and will update our safety practices as necessary. This page was last updated on May 29, 2020.
Drop Off and Pickup
Continuing to follow guidance from Bright from the Start and the Department of Health, the building is now reopen to parents. Masks are required upon entry and parents will be allowed in the hallways and up to the classroom door. Children will be brought over the threshold and parents can connect with teachers in the doorway. We have also implemented contactless check in-out using QR scans. We have established separate entrances for preschoolers and campers. Finally, our team does a temperature and wellness check of every student and parent before entering. If any of our students get sick or run a temperature during the day, they are able to rest in our clinic until a parent or guardian is able to pick them up.
Cleaning and Disinfecting
Every day, our team follows a sanitizing schedule using our ZONO Disinfectant and Sanitizing Cabinet for all of our toys, equipment, and even our families’ car seats. This revolutionary device kills 99.9% of common viruses on non-porous surfaces and 99.9% of common bacteria on non-porous, porous and semi-porous surfaces. In addition, our classrooms, and enrichment rooms are sanitized after each use. Our playgrounds are sprayed after each session using “Odoban” sanitizing spray.
All staff complete a temperature and wellness check before entering the building. Everyone on our team wears a face mask when caring for our children.
Health and Safety Activities
We are working hard to maintain a safe learning environment for all students and staff by continuously educating students and staff about the importance of frequent hand washing; proper techniques for covering a cough or sneeze; not touching one’s eyes, nose, and mouth; staying home when ill, and other measures to prevent the spread of all communicable diseases.
Family Tours and Guests
Normally, we invite all new families to stop by to visit at any time. Currently we are not allowing outside visitors into the facility while we are serving our current students. As new families schedule a tour, we provide times outside of regular operating hours to visit.
