LPCNS response to coronavirus:  covid-19

 

Dear Lincoln Park Cooperative Nursery Families, 

 

We are writing today to update you on the school's strategy for the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. In response to COVID-19, we have formed a COVID-19 committee to monitor the situation, create protocols, and ensure we are strictly abiding by the CDC Guidelines. Under our COVID-19 protocols, LPCNS defines our community as: staff, students, parents, immediate caregivers, and any other individuals living with you. We urge you to be transparent with us, and immediately inform us if you or anyone with whom you have had close contact has been exposed to  COVID-19. 

 

Furthermore, if a member of our community, as defined in the previous paragraph, comes into direct contact with anyone who has been in any location designated by the CDC as Level 2 or Level 3 (COVID-19 information for Travelers) or comes into direct contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19, LPCNS will require you to to self-quarantine all appropriate individuals. You will not be permitted to return to school until the quarantine period is complete.  The CDC currently recommends a 14-day quarantine period. Additionally, access to our building will be limited to staff, current parents, guardians or designated caregivers, or visitors conducting necessary business. 

 

We appreciate your continued support as we work together to maintain a healthy environment for all of our children, families and staff. On our end, we continue to employ our daily sanitation procedures. These procedures are outlined in the parent handbook, which can be found on a webpage we created to keep you informed about our health and safety practices. We encourage you to follow DCFS's rules as you decide whether or not to send your child to school. 

 

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out.  

 

Thank you for your support and cooperation,

 

Erin Booker, Executive Director

Lincoln Park Cooperative Nursery School
