CV19 Policies and Procedures
We'd like to let you know what we're doing to ensure the safety of everyone during our outdoor student programming. We are following the most up to date guidlines from the Washington Department of Health. You can read these guidelines here.
We are passionate about continuing to offer outdoor programs for students to gather safely and continue learning about our incredible marine ecosystem.
The social and emotional health of students is so important to us, especially this year. "Children are more vulnerable to the emotional impact of traumatic events that disrupt their daily lives." We hope our programs offer light and happiness to your child's social and emotional health during these difficult times.
We will continue following the most up to date guidelines regarding CV19 precautions. Youth Development CV 19 Guidelines found here and also see pg. 3 of AMENDING PROCLAMATIONS 20-05 and 20-25, et seq. for "Outdoor Social Gatherings" here).
We know it has been the conversation of all households in 2020, however we kindly request that you reiterate #1-5 to your children before attending any of our programs.
When we all work together to continue to strictly follow these precautions, we are able to safely continue with our student programming!
Please share the following:
Social distancing must be maintained
Masks must stay on the mouth AND nose
Wash hands before attending, bring a bottle of hand sanitizer to use during and on the way to the car, and immediately once you get home
Don't touch your face and/or objects others will be touching without first washing/sanitizing
These methods have been scientifically shown to reduce the risk of spreading the virus if it were to be present. When used properly and together, these methods make it really difficult for the virus to spread between people. With the same precautions, other outdoor organizations are also continuing to operate in a reduced capacity.
We will also be taking temperatures at check-in and requiring a CV19 form to be signed before student attendance at each event.
Please stay home if there has been any questionable exposure or symptoms
If you feel that these methods can't lower the risk to a level you're comfortable with given the current circumstances, we completely respect and commend you for that
We really look forward to safely exploring and learning together.
Please get in touch with any questions or concerns.
This year has taught us that a pandemic requires flexibility and patience.
We appreciate yours as we navigate this together.
