About in-person classes during COVID-19
Over the past year PNPC has worked hard to keep our in-person classes safe and fun for everyone by developing a detailed four stage plan to help our program pivot depending on current guidelines and on the direction of the pandemic in our greater community. We prioritize providing our students with as much in-person learning as possible, while including layered strategies to limit exposure and to keep our children’s health and safety front and center, all while following Federal, State, and local guidelines and protocols. These include, but are not limited to:
- A requirement for all parents, guardians, and caregivers working in the classroom to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
- Masks are required for all teachers, parents, guardians, and caregivers, and children over 2 years old (with adult supervision).
- Classrooms have been fitted with air purifiers and additional ventilation to improve air flow, and additional PPE is available if needed.
- Parents and children are required to follow a daily health screen and attestation to check for symptoms before joining class each day. Anyone with symptoms must stay home and follow current King County guidance before returning to school.
For many of our children, spending time with other kids is a brand new experience — one we’re committed to helping provide as we look for creative ways to keep everyone safe, happy, and healthy.
