What precautions are you taking to keep students and staff healthy?
We take the health and safety of our students and staff seriously. Please read through our CoronaVirus Response page and the FAQ’s below.
What do I do if I’m sick or someone in my family is sick?
If your child feels sick at all, for any reason, PLEASE STAY HOME. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the symptoms you are experiencing. Any student who has a fever, cough, sore throat, diarrhea, or vomiting is required to stay home until they are symptom free for 24-48 hours.
What happens if my child gets sick at PAA?
We understand that not all illnesses will be COVID19 related, but we need to provide a safe place to handle illnesses. A staff member will be monitoring the student. We will call the parents when a child reports being ill.
What happens if a student, staff or faculty member tests positive for COVID?
PAA will consult professional care givers and follow current local and state health guidelines.
Are the restrooms cleaned regularly?
Yes! While we encourage students to utilize the bathroom facilities before coming to PAA, selected restrooms are available for use and are cleaned, disinfected and sanitized regularly during programming.
What is PAA doing to help increase ventilation in the classrooms to reduce the spread of COVID?
We have many commercial HEPA filtration units for rooms and have installed air unit filters with MERV13 or HEPA filters. We know the ACR or air change rate for each of our rooms, and are able to maintain safe capacities in each space.
What cleaning protocols are in place to ensure the safety of the children and staff?
PAA uses a line of cleaning products that have been approved by Tri-County Health from a company called Buckeye. Buckeye provides both a sanitizer and disinfectant that are used properly according to their labels.
