COVID-19 Update: OUR CHILDCARE PROGRAMS ARE OPEN DURING REMOTE LEARNING!
Cherry Creek Schools continues their commitment to providing excellence in education – while taking extensive measures to protect the health of students and staff.
In these uncertain times, Extended Child Services wants to give you peace of mind that ECS programs will continue to provide childcare to our valued families during the remote learning environment.
Childcare will look very similar to the care provided this summer with health screening at check-in and grouping the children into cohorts. The programs will uphold the highest level of safety of both the children and the staff. We will continue our strict regimen of cleaning and disinfecting all locations where children and staff are present, wash hands at consistent intervals throughout the day, clean and disinfect high touch areas during scheduled intervals, and clean toys and other supplies used throughout the day. In addition, every night, the district will continue to deep clean and spray all spaces used by the program to be ready for the next day.
What may be different for some families is care may not be provided at your school, but a school close by. Please be assured that every attempt will be made to ensure staff members from your program will be working at the school providing care.
In the remote learning model, the instruction is a mixture of synchronous (students learning online together at the same time) and asynchronous. ECS programs will provide space and supervision for the children attending. However, ECS staff do not provide instruction to students during this time. Children attending should bring their own technology to use, but back-up technology will be available, if needed.
As always, the health and safety of our students, families and staff in Cherry Creek School District is our highest priority.
Thank you for your continued support!
