Covid-19 Safety Policies

EECP will be closely aligned with the ADHS Guidelines for quarantine and release from isolation. EECP has used CDC guidelines, ADHS, our insurance company and community members in the Public Health field to write the sick policy.

All students will have a health screening including a temperature check upon arrival/drop off. Any child with a temperature or exhibiting any of the above symptoms, will be sent home.

If a child begins to exhibit the symptoms listed above while they are at school, they will be isolated in the director’s office to avoid community spread as much as possible and will need to be picked up within 20 minutes when possible to avoid extended exposure to anyone on campus.

EECP Covid-19 Quarantine and release from isolation policy: *We will update this part of the policy as new information or guidance is given from the agencies.

Symptomatic individual who tests positive:

  • remain off campus for 10 days from symptom onset AND only allowed to return 72 hours after fever resolution (if present) AND all symptoms have resolved.

Asymptomatic individual who tests positive:

  • remain off campus until 10 days have passed since the positive COVID-19 test was done.

Symptomatic individual who has not been tested:

  • remain off campus for 10 days from symptom onset AND only allow to return 72 hours after fever resolution (if present) AND all symptoms have resolved.

Symptomatic individual who tests negative:

  • remain off campus for 10 days from symptom onset AND only allow to return 72 hours after fever resolution (if present) AND all symptoms have resolved.

Asymptomatic individual exposed (close contact) to symptomatic or COVID-positive individual:

  • Close contact is defined as greater than 10 minutes of continuous interaction less than 6 feet away

  • remain off campus for 14 days from last exposure if remains asymptomatic

  • if the individual becomes symptomatic, they must remain off campus until they meet criteria listed above of a symptomatic individual who tests positive or is not tested for COVID-19 and is symptomatic.

 

Please note: these protocols are applicable regardless of whether an individual has previously tested positive for COVID-19 or believes that they had the virus at any point previously. This policy may evolve as additional information becomes available regarding the COVID-19 virus.

 

Cleaning Procedures

In addition to our regular cleaning schedule required by the Arizona Department of Health, we have increased sanitation both in the classrooms and in our outdoor environments.  Children will be using their own art supplies that we have given them as well as their own playdough. We will be utilizing tubs and containers for loose parts and sensory play that are labeled  for each child. Trikes and outdoor toys are sanitized in between classes using them and indoor toys and materials are sanitized as needed throughout the day and every day at the end of each class session.  The classrooms are also cleaned each day by the building janitor.
