To ensure that the least amount of person to person contact is occurring as our children arrive at school, children will be dropped off outside of their their classrooms, only parents or primary guardians will be permitted to drop off and pick up, and children will be required to wash hands before entering the building. Drop Off times are: 7-9am at Higgins and 8-9am at Lullwood. Pick Up times are 3-5pm at Higgins and 3:30-5:30pm at Lullwood. The Drop Off location at Higgins will be outside the main lobby entrance. The Drop Off location for Lullwood will be outside the main entrance.
Upon arrival at both of Brighton’s Preschool Centers, parents and children will have their temperature checked. Any temperature over 100 degrees from either parent or child, the child will not be permitted to attend. To return, a child must be fever free for 72 hours or 24 hours symptom free if they have a doctor’s note and are not taking fever reducing medication. In addition, parents will be asked to complete a health survey everyday upon drop off.
Brighton is slowly easing back into full operations and will be following a modified schedule as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 virus and hopefully its steadily decline. Until further notice, Brighton’s Higgins Preschool location will be open from 7am – 5pm and the Lullwood location will be open from 7:30am to 5:30pm.
Your child’s teacher will be required to do many new things to ensure the safety of the children in the classroom. Some of these new protocols include, wearing gloves as often as possible, wearing a mask all day, staying with the same children each day as often as possible, and using common spaces on Brighton’s campuses only when distance can be upheld between classes.
Inside the Classroom, children can expect to have all meals prepared individually by their teacher rather than serving “family style”. If a child brings a meal from home it will be required to be labeled, sealed and in disposable packaging. All children will be provided with nap sheets and blankets that will be laundered daily and children will nap a minimum 6′ apart.
