Drop-Off and Pick-Up Expectations

Do not drop off your child if:


  • Your child currently has or recently had a temperature of 100.4° or higher. Children must be fever-free for at least 24 hours prior to returning to school.

  • Your child has used fever-reducing medicine in the past 24 hours.

  • Your child has a cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing.

  • Your child has chills, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell. 

  • Your child has diarrhea or vomiting.

  • Your child has two or more of the following symptoms: nausea, congestion / runny nose, muscle pain, stomach pain, fatigue, or headache.

  • Your child has been diagnosed with COVID-19, based on a positive test result. Under this circumstance, follow personalized instructions from your child’s medical provider and the Maine CDC regarding when your child may return to school.

  • Any member of your household has been diagnosed with a confirmed case of COVID-19. Your child must stay home until 10 days after the family member has been released from isolation.

  • Your child or any member of your household has been in close contact with someone with a confirmed COVID-19 case. If your child has not been vaccinated, your child must stay home for 10 days, regardless of whether they receive a negative COVID-19 PCR test result. If the exposure is not considered a “close contact,” parents should carefully monitor all household members and keep children at home if they develop symptoms. The CDC definition of “close contact” includes:

    • Being within 6 feet of an infected person for a total of 15 cumulative minutes or more over 24 hours

    • Providing care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19

    • Direct physical contact with an infectious person (ex: hugging/kissing) 

    • Sharing eating or drinking utensils 

    • Being exposed to respiratory droplets from an infectious person (ex: sneezing/coughing) 


Fully vaccinated students who are a close contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 must remain at home until they receive a negative PCR test result; testing must occur at least 3-5 days after exposure. 


Parents must wear a mask while on campus grounds.  


When picking your child up from aftercare on a day with nice weather, first check the playground to see if your child is outdoors. Children will have their backpacks, etc., with them so that they do not need to re-enter the building. If children are indoors, call or text Hannah Zeman, After Care Director, upon your arrival. Your child will be sent outside to you.
