  • Each day the classrooms will be thoroughly cleaned and then sanitized with a disinfectant spray (approved by the CDC) that kills Covid19.
  • The children’s & adult bathrooms will be cleaned after each use.
  • Each classroom, including the office will have an H13 HEPA air purifier that is a medical-grade air filter capable of removing a minimum of 99.95% particles at MPPS (0.21 microns) and designed to create a healthier indoor air quality. The filters will be inspected regularly for cleanliness and replaced if needed.
  • The central air system automatically turns on at 6am and off by 7pm. 25% of the air in the building is continually replaced with fresh air from the outside. At the same time, 25% of the re-circulated air supply is vented out through the exhaust system. This system also has an economizer cycle which allows us to change this percentage if guidelines are revised.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the hallways and all classrooms.
