The health and safety of our students and staff continues to be our top priority at Trinity Preschool. We've put together a list of precautions that we will be taking in order to open safely and in person this year. We anticipate additions and adaptations to the list as we learn more from the CDC and local health departments.  


  • Teachers and staff are all fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

  • Mask optional and monitoring the CDC's COVID-19 Community Levels. 

  • We will take temperatures and check symptoms for children upon entry each day.

  • We will conduct regular health checks of staff and children to look for symptoms of sickness or fever.  

  • Assign students to different entrances to the building so we can reduce wait times at drop off and pick up and maintain social distancing. Parents, caregivers and volunteers have limited access to the building.   

  • Practice frequent hand washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and require handwashing upon arriving at the program, when entering the classroom, before meals or snacks, after outside time, after going to the bathroom, and prior to leaving for home. Help young children to ensure they are doing it effectively. If soap and water are not readily available, using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

  • Limit capacity to 12 individuals per classroom, including staff for children under the age of 4 years old. Children 4 and over will continue to operate under a 1:8 ratio in order to maintain social distancing  

  • Keep the same small group of children together throughout the day; avoid combining groups (e.g., at opening and closing). To the degree possible, we will maintain the same groups from day to day. This will help reduce potential exposures and may prevent the entire program from shutting down if exposure does occur.   

  • Limit shared teaching materials to those that can be easily cleaned and disinfected at the end of the day or more often as needed.
