We want to reassure all RAC families that RAC has taken the additional measures to operate in a safe & healthy manner based on our many, many enhanced COVID-19 protocols. These include but are not limited to: • All RAC parents and staff are required to complete an online Daily Health Screening Jot Form each morning (received by RAC before your child/ren are admitted into care). This is to ensure that all children are entering the childcare center free of all COVID related symptoms.• RAC Parents and all non-essential visitors are not permitted into the school/childcare centre, except in an emergency.• All RAC staff and children are required to increase the frequency of hand hygiene by washing their hands with soap/using hand sanitizer frequently throughout the day and upon arrival into the Centre.• All RAC children are required to wear masks inside the school/RAC and while outside, when 2 metres/6 feet distance cannot be achieved throughout the day. Staff must also wear a medical mask while in the school building and outdoors when 2 metres/6 feet of distance cannot be maintained. (except when working alone).• RAC will place children in their RAC room/cohort, based on grades/school classrooms that your child is starting in September.• RAC staff undertake enhanced daily cleaning and disinfection of surfaces, toys and high-touch areas throughout the day and at the end of their shift. Additional cleaning and disinfection of building high touch surfaces are coordinated with the school caretaking staff.• RAC staff will monitor all children for any signs of illness throughout the day. If a child has a symptom of COVID-19, the parent will be called and asked to pick up the child and siblings as soon as possible.• A RAC Supervisor will follow up with all individuals to determine the reason for any unplanned absences. Our hours of operation have been modified until further notice: 8:00am-4:30pm on non-instructional days (Summer, PA Days) AND 7:45am – 5:30pm on instructional (regular school days) to accommodate all of the above.
