At WildRoots Nature School, we are doing our part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Here is a look at some of the measures we are taking as well as COVID-19 related policies:
Small Class sizes
~ We maintain small class sizes. We limit our enrollment to 10 children in each class. Two teachers are present at all times.
~ Our classes will be held outdoors all year round. In fresh open air where transmission rates are much lower and with nature helping boost our immune systems.
Stay at Home Policy
We ask parents to check and keep children home if they show any of the following symptoms.
~Cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breaking
~ Muscle or body aches
~New loss of taste or smell
~Congestion or runny nose
~Nausea or vomiting
~If exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last two weeks
If a student shows any signs of any of these symptoms, parents will be called and the child must go home.
Hygiene During Class
~We use alcohol-based hand sanitizer upon arrival at school, before snack, when leaving, and anytime during the day as needed.
Request of Our Families Who Enroll
~We ask parents to please comply with our “stay at home” policy.
~We recommend our families to continue to social distance outside of school
~ We recommend our families wear masks in indoor public spaces
~We recommend our families avoid any travel outside Idaho if possible
~We ask our families again to wear masks outside of school when inside or when social distancing isn't possible
~All of our teachers will have masks on hand for any parent interaction or during team meetings
~We do not require our 5-year-old and younger students to wear masks. However for the caregiver/child classes, we encourage adults to wear a mask when social distancing proves challenging
