Our COVID-19 Health and Safety Measures

Drop-Off and Pickup

We are using curbside drop-off and pickup of your children. Our staff will escort them to and from their classrooms.

Parents are required to wear a mask during drop-off and pickup of children and children age two and older are required to wear a mask. (The Family Partnership is happy to provide durable and attractive cloth masks, donated by skilled community artists)

Symptom Checks

We conduct temperature and symptom checks on all children and staff who enter our buildings.

Those with COVID-19 symptoms or a temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher will not be admitted.

Building Protocols

Our staff is trained on safety practices: frequently cleaning, hand washing, and wearing personal protective equipment at all times.

Social distancing guidelines are followed, including having no more than 10 people allowed in a room (including our staff).

No Visitors, including parents, are allowed in early childhood classrooms or hallways until further notice. Building access is limited.

Travel and Symptom Protocols

Any Family Partnership staff traveling out of state must quarantine for 14 days before returning to classrooms or in-person services.

We follow all guidelines regarding staff or children with illness. We follow the Minnesota Department of Health’s Decision Tree for any COVID-19 symptoms.

Stay healthy and safe!
