Here at Little Footprints Academy, we are taking effective measures to keep your families, our staff, and in turn, our communities, safe. We understand the seriousness of these unprecedented times, and will require the full cooperation of our parents, children, and teachers. Schools do not pose a threat to the numbers of COVID related cases in BC. During these difficult and trying times, LFPA is happy to remain open so that we can extend our services to the front-line heroes and full time working parents. Please take a close look at our operational changes that have been set in place during the course of this pandemic.
Effective January 1st:
Our Policy on Masks:
Mandatory wearing of masks for both parents and all teachers while at work.
Children are not expected to wear masks.
Parents are not allowed into the facility. Drop offs and picks are done by the Entry door.
Please provide your class lead teachers with a 15 minute window of time for your drop off and likewise for pickup as well so that teachers are ready to receive your child and get their belongings ready for pick up.
Please TEXT or email your child’s teachers for any pressing issues that need to be addressed to set up an appropriate time to discuss via video call.
Monitoring Symptoms and Quarantine:
If you (or any member of your family) are entertaining visitors from out of the country (including the USA) or come in contact with anyone visiting from abroad will also require a mandatory 14 day quarantine
Fever and/or cough or any flu like symptoms for your child or any member of the family will require a mandatory COVID test to be done. (refer to daily health check attachment)
We understand the difficulty that has already arisen with cold/flu season and are very appreciative of the measures you have all taken to keep everyone safe. We ask for continued cooperation and understanding as this pandemic evolves and need to hang in there a few more months. Let us continue to work together, and please don’t forget to keep the 2 meter distance from others at all times.
