Covid Health and Safety Guidelines
Kids For Kids Academy remains committed to the health and safety of our students.
- Although we understand that as of Friday 2/25/2022, DCF announced that they are no longer requiring children in childcare to wear masks, we at Kid For Kids Academy strongly recommend that they do.
- As a parent, it is your choice to make. If your child arrives at school wearing a mask, we will encourage and support them to keep it on.
- We will continue to offer free masks to all children to facilitate this.
- As an extra measure of protection, our kids in VPK and Kindergarten through Second Grade will continue work within individual plexiglass workspaces.
- Our staff will continue to wear masks and we ask that if you approach the door that you continue to wear one too.
- All students and staff will undergo daily temperature checks.
- The school will be cleaned and sanitized daily.
- Students will not mix with other age groups.
- All children will wash hands upon entry to the facility.
- The health and safety of your child is our #1 Priority.
