Dear Parents - In regards to COVID-19, we are doing all we can to remain open and support our infrastructure and provide services to everyone needing child care, while maintaining the health and safety of our children, families, and staff. We do understand the importance of having child care available in our community. We will be implementing the following guidelines sent by the Texas Health & Human Services Commission and Child Care Licensing immediately:

Prohibit any person except the following from accessing an operation: operation staff; persons with legal authority to enter, including law enforcement officers, HHSC Child Care Licensing staff, and Department of Family and Protective Services staff; professionals providing services to children; children enrolled at the operation; and parents who have children enrolled and present at the operation.

Before allowing entry into the operation, screen all of the individuals listed above, including taking the temperature of each person upon arrival at the operation each day, and deny entry to any person who meets any of the following criteria:
A temperature of 100.4°F or above;
Signs or symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as a cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, and low-grade fever;
In the previous 14 days has had contact with someone with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19; is under investigation for COVID-19; or is ill with a respiratory illness; or In the previous 14 days has travelled internationally to countries with widespread, sustained community transmission. For updated information on affected countries, visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavi…/2019-nCoV/travelers/index.html

Require pick up and drop off of children outside of the operation, unless you determine that there is a legitimate need for the parent to enter an operation.

If you or your family meet any of the above criteria, please keep your child(ren) at home. We will be sending home any children that develop any of the above listed symptoms and ask that you pick up your child within 30 minutes of being notified to pick up your child. This is for the welfare of all.

Please understand that we will do all we can do to make these new procedures as efficient and timely as possible. But, please allow for additional time when picking up and dropping off. We will not rush this process as it is vital to the safety of all.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and cooperation as we all work together to follow the rapidly changing recommendations regarding COV-19. As stated before, please follow FB, our website, email and phone answering service for updates as this situation is changing rapidly.

 


Thank you and be safe, ABC ACADEMY
