Updated COVID Protocols for the 2022-2023 School Year
We will continue the 2022-2023 school year with the following protocols concerning COVID-19:
Navy CYP have revised their guidance concerning indoor face coverings based on current COVID-19 Community Levels. Face masks will now be optional for children, parents, teachers, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status.
Parents will still be required to answer a self-screening survey every day at drop-off and we will continue to take your child’s temperature before entering the classrooms using a no-contact forehead thermometer. Children with a fever (above 99.3°) will not be admitted. Each child will be required to use hand sanitizer upon entering the classroom.
For instructions regarding how positive COVID results and close contacts will be handled at our school, please refer to the updated Navy CYP COVID-19 Return to Care Guidance and Mask Wearing letter.
For snack and lunch times, students will continue regular hand washing routines before and after eating, and will be distanced with only two or three children assigned to each picnic table.
The food preparation activity has been removed and replaced with a sanitation station including antibacterial hand wipes. Each classroom will be sprayed with disinfectant at the end of the school day.
Children will be provided with disposable paper cups for drinking cold bottled water on the lanai after recess as well as bottled water in the classrooms – please do not bring plastic cups or water containers.
Children who stay for lunch will not brush their teeth at school as this requirement has been suspendeduntil further notice.
Children who stay until 2:30 pm will have their cots spread out at least six feet apart during rest time – please do not bring pillows or stuffed animals.
In an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19 and other contagious illnesses, please do not bring your child to school if they are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms such as cough, fever, runny nose, shortness of breath, or any other respiratory problems. We encourage COVID-19 viral testing if your child has had close contact with someone positive for COVID.
