Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Are all the kids still going into the gym?
We will do our best to get each group time for recreation in the gym. However, the gym may not always be available to us.
Are they staying in the classrooms?
There will be some groups in classrooms and we will try to keep them in their designated classrooms to limit contact exposure.
Are you mixing all kids from the same grade?
Students will be assigned to their groups by grade. This makes it easier for homework assistance and age-appropriate activities.
Are the staff and students required to wear masks?
Club Ed will be adopting the School District decision on the mask mandate. As of March 7th, 2022, wearing masks will be optional for all Club Ed students and staff. This can change at any time based on state or school district directives.
What if a student exhibits symptoms of illness while in Club Ed?
All students will have their temperature taken upon arrival to program. If a child has a fever of 100.4 or higher or exhibits other symptoms of illness, the child will be placed in a designated "waiting area" away from others. The child's parent/guardian/emergency contact will be called and will be required to pick up the child immediately. We will then report it to the school and the local health department.
Can I enter the building to help my child pack up when I pick up?
At this time, parents will not be permitted to enter the building. The Club Ed staff will make sure that your child has all their belongings and will escort them to the designated pickup area.
