Health & Safety Is A Primary Concern
We would be remiss if we did not address our stance on the “new normal”.
We have always taken a proactive position on addressing any challenges. We teach scholars not to run from challenges but to address them. COVID-19 is no different.
EMCC has a strict requirement for each family to have a "Sick-Day" plan that outlines the family's plan and procedure for if/when their scholar is sick and cannot attend our program. We adamantly enforce our health policy without exception. Touchless temperatures will be taken upon arrival. Anyone with a temperatures in excess of 99.0 degrees will not permitted to enter the program until their health is restored and a normal temperature has returned. without mediction. Sickness can potentially impact everyone in the program as well as ther families and cannot be allowed. Lastly, scholars have difficulty learning when feeling ill.
We and others in our facility, have agreed upon safety measures that align with guidelines of local health authorities such as face coverings in hallways and other general public spaces, frequent handwashing, hand sanitizing stations, and sanitizing of common area surfaces to name a few. We do not require face coverings inside of our classrooms unless the scholar is experiencing excessive coughing or sneezing. Scholars may choose to wear their face coverings at all times if they like.
We will make quality use of our access to scenic outdoor areas for periods of instruction as well as exercise, sunshine and fresh air.
To combat the spread of Covid-19 and other communicable issues and the negative impacts of such we will continue to include regular discussions of how germs spread, how our immune system works, how to strengthen it, the importance of nutrient rich foods, clean water, proper hygiene, and quality sleep as well as other meaningful protocols and practices.
We believe that empowering scholars on how to protect themselves through education and action is a quality tool that will serve them well throughout their lives.
