COVID-19 CENTER POLICIES
As we deal with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it is important that we do our part to mitigate the possibility of new infections.
1. We will follow all current state and county guidelines regarding how we can interact with one another (social distancing 3 feet apart).
2. All students, staff and anyone entering the Kumon Center must wear a face mask or face shield.
3. Please do not bring your child to Kumon if they are not feeling well, have a fever, or show symptoms of illness. Depending on the current environment regarding the severity of active COVID-19 infections in Hawaii, we may take the temperature readings of our students upon entry into the center.
a. If a student has a fever, we will wait 5 minutes to retake temperature. If the student’s temperature remains above 100.4, he or she will be asked to leave.
b. If a student displays visible signs of illness (repeated coughing or sneezing, lethargy, etc.) they may be asked to leave. Although we are not qualified to diagnose an illness, it is important that we avoid the possibility of spreading illness.
4. Students will be asked to wash their hands upon entering and use hand sanitizer upon leaving the Kumon Center.
5. Appointment times. Students will receive an appointment time to attend Kumon. We will be strictly enforcing student scheduling to limit the number of people in the center at once. All students should arrive promptly at their scheduled time and should not remain at the center past their appointment time.
a. Priority to choose appointment times will be given to our students based on seniority (date of enrollment).
b. Appointment times will be enforced. Missing his or her appointment time may result in missing the opportunity to stay at the center to complete classwork and instead being asked to take classwork home to complete.
6. Only students can stay inside the Kumon Center. To avoid overcrowding and allow maximum seating following social distancing guidelines, ALL non Kumon students will be asked to wait outside the Kumon Center. Loitering near entrances will not be allowed.
In efforts to mitigate the spread of infection, our Kumon Math and Reading center will:
· Ventilate the Center by opening the doors
· Use of Winix Air Purifier at all times
· Minimize crowding: Students will sit at least three feet apart from each other. Siblings or same households are the only students that may share desks at this time.
· Reduce conversation and avoid close contact
· Fully disinfect center: regularly disinfect commonly touched/shared surfaces
· Utilize PPE: require anyone who enters the Center to wear a mask and take the temperature of everyone upon entrance
We ask that Parents and Students support our efforts by:
· Having students bring their own pencil and eraser. This will minimize the sharing of supplies and the spread of germs.
· Encouraging proper personal hygiene. Wash hands upon entry and use hand sanitizer upon exit.
Here are a few tips from the Center of Disease Control and Prevention:
· Teach your child(ren) to wash their hands often. Washing with soap and warm water for at least20 seconds is ideal.
· Hand sanitizer is an effective alternative to washing hands if hands are not visibly soiled. Gels, rubs, and hand wipes all work well if they contain at least 60% alcohol. Hand wipes must be disposed of properly. Always read and follow label instructions when using hand sanitizer.
· Teach your child(ren) to keep their hands away from their face and avoid touching their mouth, nose, or eyes when possible.
· Teach your child(ren) 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 that your child(ren) has contracted any illness, it is important that they do not visit the center until they have had no fever for at least 72 hours without the use of fever reducing medicine AND other symptoms have improved (for example, when your cough or shortness of breath has improved).
Thank you for your help in keeping everyone at our Kumon Center healthy!
