Health & Safety Protocol

A health check should be conducted prior to attending school and the ActivKids program. If your child begins to exhibit any symptoms of illness, immediate pick-up is required.

Children may not attend if they are:

  • Isolating due to a positive COVID test result
  • Waiting for COVID test results
  • Exhibiting symptoms of COVID or another illness

The program supervisors should be notified if your child tests or is presumed positive for COVID or if they have a close-contact exposure so appropriate protocol can be implemented.

Participants must meet essential eligibility requirements. If one-on-one assistance is needed, WDSRA inclusion support may be provided at no cost. A minimum of two weeks’ notice is required and participation may not begin or may be suspended until an aide is secured.

More information health, safety, our behavior management plan, and zero-tolerance violations can be reviewed in the Parent/Participant Handbook.
