COVID-19 Classroom Access Policy

***Effective April 1, 2022 the Classroom Access Policy has been removed.***

Beginning January 1, 2022, all adults entering the Discovery Preschool classroom (or teaching environment if outside the classroom) will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. In order to access the classroom as a teacher, substitute teacher, parent volunteer, contracted service worker, (or any adult over the age of 18), valid proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 is required (with the second dose being at least two weeks prior.)

Two doses of a two-dose series are required — it must be at least 2 weeks since the second dose to be considered valid. We will no longer accept proof of a negative Covid-19 test in lieu of full vaccination as of January 1, 2022.
