Covid-19 Policy


Safety First 
​  安 全 第 一

Safety is essential especially during Covid-19. We understand the importance of having good safety protocol. Children and staff have their body temperatures measured and are required to use liquid hand sanitizer before starting class. We remind the children to wash hands frequently after finishing an activity, and make sure they stay clean before eating, after recess, during lunch clean-up, after touching the face, and after using the bathroom. After class, staff will deep clean and disinfect the classrooms and all facilities. 

COVID-19 Guidance

Consistent and correct mask use

  • Indoors: CDC recommends universal masking in ECE programs for everyone two years of age and older, regardless of vaccination status.

  • Outdoors: In general, people do not need to wear masks when outdoors. CDC recommends that people age 2 and older who are not fully vaccinated wear a mask in crowded outdoor settings or during activities that involve sustained close contact with other people. 

Physical distancing

  • Improved ventilation, handwashing, covering coughs and sneezes, and regular cleaning to help reduce transmission risk.


  • Opening multiple doors and windows, using child-safe fans to increase the effectiveness of open windows, and making changes to the HVAC or air filtration systems.

Staying Home When Sick and Getting Tested

   The overlap between COVID-19 symptoms with other common illnesses means that some people with symptoms of COVID-19 could be ill with something else. This is even more likely in young children, who typically have multiple viral illnesses each year. Although COVID-19, colds, and flu illnesses have similar symptoms, they are different diseases. Children who have symptoms of infectious illness or certain symptoms of COVID-19 should not attend school. The families are encouraged to be on the alert for signs of illness in their children and to keep them home when they are sick.

  • Fever, temperature 100.4 ºF or higher, or chills

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Headache

  • New loss of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

  • Congestion or runny nose

  • Diarrhea, vomiting, or stomachache


People who have a fever of 100.4 ºF (38.0 ºC) or above or other signs of illness should not be admitted to school.

  • Any families who travel by airplane are highly recommended to do COVID-19 tests and send the results to school before the children return to school.


  •  If the confirmed COVID-19 cases are from the children's siblings' classes or parents' workplaces, the children need to stay at home for 5 days after their siblings and parents last exposure to that person. On the 5th day, the children and their family need to do COVID-19 tests and send the negative results to Grace before the children return to school.

  • Whether and for how long to stay home for people who have been exposed to a person with COVID-19 depends on vaccination status. Children and unvaccinated staff who had close contact with someone who has (suspected or confirmed) COVID-19 should stay home (quarantine) for 5 days after their last exposure to that person. Close contact is defined as within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period. Some localities might choose to use testing to shorten quarantine
