The Office of Early Childhood in the State of Connecticut, as directed by the CDC, has now required children 3 years of age and older to wear a mask at school. Mask wearing and limited group size will help slow the spread of Coronavirus. Also included in the revised guidelines is hand washing, social distancing and increased cleaning and disinfection which we continue to practice daily.
The masks requirement for all children will begin on September 21st and we are to be in full compliance by October 19, 2020.
Exemptions will only be granted for children due to a medical condition, disability, special healthcare or developmental need. A note from the child's doctor will be required.
Kids are amazing and they can do this! Remember to give lots of encouragement for trying and learning something new! We will do the same while they are at school in our care.
We are all in this together and we can do hard things!
