BCIU Child Care classrooms reopened to students on Monday, June 15, 2020. The classrooms had been closed since the stay-at-home order was issued by Governor Tom Wolf on March 13.
While the health and safety of students has always been the top priority for Child Care staff, due to the pandemic, new protocols have been implemented to help prevent the spread of communicable diseases within the classrooms.
These changes include:
- Requiring masks to be worn by parents and children while on BCIU property (student masks will be removed once the child enters their assigned classroom)
- Temperature checks and daily symptom checks for students prior to entering the building
- Increased hand washing for students and staff
- More frequent disinfecting of touched surfaces, toys, and playground equipment
The BCIU appreciates the hard work of our Child Care staff to provide a healthy and safe environment that promotes learning and growth of our students.
