Lunch Time

School is providing snacks and lunch.  Children will have their snacks & lunch in their own classroom.

Nap Time

Cots will be placed 6 feet apart alternating head placement.  Cots will be sanitized everyday.  Cot sheet & pillow will not be used; a small blanket will be stored after nap in a plastic bag and placed in the child's cubby. Blanket goes home on Friday to be laundered in hot temperature.

Why is a child allowed to bring blanket but not a pillow?

We do not have individualized storage capacity to accommodate at this time.
