COVID-19 Updates

At The Eastern Ridge School, we are working hard to make the return to school both safe for our community (your children, your family, and our staff), while still meeting the social, emotional, and developmental needs of your children. With the following agreement between your family and our staff in place, we believe we can continue to offer valuable and safe programming based on a primarily outdoor model which is rooted in the way we have always believed children learn best.

The following agreement has been approved for our summer program and is subject to changes and amendments prior to the 2020-2021 school year as we assess both its effectiveness and the changing climate in the community at large.

2 November 2020: In accordance with recent updates from the CDC, wherever our policies or procedures reference “close contact” defined as “within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes,” that definition is amended to say “within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes, at one time, or cumulatively over a 24 hour period.” Specifically, this language is pertinent to our illness policy referenced in the 26 August document, in our daily health questionnaire that parents complete during check-in, and has implications for our contact tracing efforts.
