Information for Legacy Kids Academy Families and Faculty regarding COVID 19
Legacy’s number one priority is, and has always been, upholding our commitment to maintain safe, healthy School environments for your children. We understand and share the continued concern about COVID-19 and its effects on your families and the larger community. We want to provide you the information you need to make the best decisions for yourself and your loved ones.
We've created this page to share the measures we're taking to keep the children, their families and the faculty members safe in our Schools.
We are grateful for your continued trust and confidence in The Legacy Kids Academy. We will get through this situation by working together and remaining focused on doing the right things.
The Legacy Kids Academy is following the guidance and directives from our state and local governments and our local health departments. Many of the children enrolled in our schools have family members playing essential roles in this crisis, including parents who work as nurses, doctors, grocery store clerks and more. Our school serves parents who work to support their families.
Here at Legacy Kids Academy do not make operating decisions lightly. While Legacy Kids Academy is independently owned, we will continue to make the best choices for the families and faculty by keeping the health and safety of everyone top of mind.
In addition to the Legacy Kids Academy own rigorous health and safety protocols, we are reinforcing CDC-recommended preventative measures, which we describe below.
Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our children, families, and faculty. That is why we’ve been working hard to implement additional policies and procedures to help keep our school as clean and germ-free as possible.
How We are staying safe
DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP PROCEDURES
Our new routines for drop-off and pick-up are designed to ensure everyone in our School stays healthy and safe. We have touch less check in and out using our Bright wheel System as well as a health check screening. Only one family at a time will be permitted inside the foyer, where our administration will conduct a quick health screening to ensure your child does not have a fever above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or other flu-like symptoms. A designated teacher will take your child to and from the classroom. For pick-up, a teacher will bring your child to the foyer. Please be mindful of keeping a six-foot distance from others during drop-off and pick-up.
PRACTICING SOCIAL DISTANCING
We will practice social distancing in the classroom throughout the day. Your children will remain in the classroom or on the playground with their teachers and classmates. For added safety, different classes will not interact with one another, and all special events and visitors will be postponed until further notice.
KEEPING AREAS CLEAN
Our teachers will implement an even more rigorous cleaning routine, and all high-touch surfaces and objects will be sanitized regularly using the 4-step process throughout the day. These include, but are not limited to, all learning materials, playground structures, light switches, and door handles.
FOOD PREP PROCEDURES
Teachers will continue to wear gloves while helping children with snack time and lunch. We will discontinue family-style servings at snack time. The teachers will serve children individually.
We have provided all employees with guidance and best practices about wearing face coverings at work. Along with our guidance, The Legacy Kids Academy must follow local health and state guidelines to ensure they are compliant with health and safety orders. For example, it’s mandatory for businesses in Texas to require face coverings be worn at all times while on-site.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY CHILD IS SICK OR A FAMILY MEMBER HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH COVID-19?
For the safety of children, families and faculty at The Legacy Kids Academy, anyone who is ill must stay home. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with COVID-19, immediately alert the director, and stay home. Please follow the CDC's recommendations if you are unwell or if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19.
