Nurtured by Nature Covid-19 Response

Small Cohorts

Even though we are an outdoor school, we will will still take precautions.

Small, in-person classes, activities, and events. Groups of students stay together and with the same teacher throughout/across school days and groups do not mix. Students remain at least 6 feet apart and do not share objects ( in-person class structures, or staggered/rotated scheduling to accommodate smaller class sizes). [CDC.gov]

Our class sizes are small, no more than 10 per class.

Handwashing

Following the CDC guidelines, we will have soap and water and/or hand sanitizer available at all of these times.

  • Before, during, and after preparing food

  • Before eating food

  • Before and after treating a cut or wound

  • After using the toilet

Each students individual items will either go home to be washed regularly or be disinfected on a weekly basis.
