While your child is at MAP, safety is our top priority! We will continue some of the precautions we put into place last year to minimize risk.
At the start of the year, everyone in the MAP building will be required to wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status. If this were to change later in the year, we would communicate with families ahead of time. Children and teachers can play and enjoy time outside without masks.
We will maintain distance while eating, and aim to eat outside as long as weather permits.
We will start the year in cohorts by grade. While they will able to play with one another outdoors, we will be keeping each grade separate during the indoor times of the day. Wheelock MAP has traditionally done 2 groups anyway, so this is a bit of a return to our normal programming - however there will be less interaction between the groups at the end of the day.
We ask that families keep us in the loop if anything is going on - if someone isn't feeling well, someone in the house has been a close contact, someone has tested positive, etc. Not all of these examples will exclude a child from care, but it is important for us to know and be able to follow the appropriate guidelines. Thank you!
