Our health and safety protocols will be periodically updated. The protocols below reflect our procedures as of June 15 2015.
There will be a nido staff member (Tiff or Lis - Jeannene will be in the classroom) in the hallway near the backdoor during arrival and departure. Please make every effort to arrive within 30 minutes of the beginning of the session, and to leave within 15 minutes of the end of the session.
The back door is locked at 9am for the morning session and 1:30pm for the afternoon, or when the last child arrives, whichever is earlier. If you find that you are unexpectedly late, please send us a message on Slack when you arrive so we can unlock the door. A key will remain in the lock of the back door so that a quick departure can be made if necessary.

The front door and back door deadbolts are locked at the end of each day and the alarm is set.
