Listed below are the policies and procedures being implemented due to COVID-19:

Personal Protection : Requiring all staff, volunteers, visitors and student participants to wear a face covering during their program (except when eating, swimming or exercising). Please send your child with a sun buff or mask to wear during their education program.

Social Distancing : Physical distance of at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people will be encouraged throughout the education program.

Time Outdoors : Increased time outdoors. Please prepare your student to spend time in the Florida outdoors (rash guards, sun buffs/neck gaiters, sunglasses and hats) in order to protect your child from the sun. Participants should also bring a reusable water bottle.

Parent Drop Off/Pick Up : Implementing a parent drop off/pick up carline to limit the number of people in the building. More details and instructions will be emailed to you prior to the program.

Supplies : Supplies will be divided and assigned to each student (crayons, markers, scissors, glue, etc.) to use while they attend their education program.

Hand Washing : Hand washing for staff, volunteers and participants throughout the program for 20 seconds with soap and water. Please remind your child about the importance of washing hands, not touching their face and keeping their hands to themselves in order to reduce the possibility of spreading germs.

Cleaning : Cleaning and sanitizing indoor space and supplies multiple times a day.

Temperature Checks : Upon arrival, a MDC staff member will conduct a temperature check. If your child’s temperature is above 100.5 degrees Fahrenheit they will be retested a second time. If they test high a second time, they will be asked to go home and schedule a visit with a primary care physician. Note: All MDC staff and volunteers will also be required to have a daily temperature check.

Health Screening : A health screening must be completed and returned prior to your child’s education program. Please keep your child home if they are not feeling well.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in keeping our staff, volunteers, and your children/grandchildren safe and healthy while they are attending a MDC Education Program!
