Center Cleanliness Policy
In an effort to mitigate spread of infection, our Kumon Center will:
· Minimize Student Density: Implement a strict scheduling system to limit the number of students in the center at any given time. Seat one student per table.
· Reduce Conversation and Close Contact: Focus on basic instruction principles, like nonverbal instruction.
· Fully Disinfect Classroom: Regularly disinfect commonly touched/shared surfaces throughout class time.
· Utilize Personal Protection Equipment: Require all staff members to wear a mask and require students who enters the center to wear a mask.
· Prevent Overcrowding in the Parent Waiting Area: Encourage parents to wait in their vehicles to limit the number of people in the parent waiting area.
We ask that Parents and Students support our efforts by:
· Having Students bring their own pencil and eraser.
· Encouraging proper hygiene. Students should wash hands or use hand sanitizer upon entrance into the center.
Here are a few tips from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention:
· Teach your children to wash their hands often. Washing with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds is ideal. (That’s about as long as it takes to sing the “Happy Birthday” song twice).
· Teach your children the proper use of hand sanitizer in case they do not have access to a sink for washing their hands. Gels, rubs, and handwipes all work well, as long as they contain at least 60% alcohol and if the hands are not visibly soiled.
· Hand wipes must be disposed of properly. Always read and follow label instructions when using hand sanitizer.
· Teach your children to keep their hands away from their face and avoid touching their mouth, nose, or eyes when possible.
· Teach your children to cover coughs and sneezes with tissues or by coughing into their sleeve or the inside of their elbow – not their hands. If a tissue is used, it should be thrown out immediately.
If you suspect your child has contracted any illness, it is important that he/she does
not attend Kumon until he/she is no longer symptomatic. Thank you for your help in keeping our children and our Kumon Center healthy.
