2020-21 Sunstone Parent COVID-19 Handbook
This document has been created to ensure that we, as a community, are taking appropriate action to protect our Sunstone community, staff, children, and families from the potential outbreak of illness. Policies outlined in this handbook override existing ones from our current parent handbook where they overlap. Together we will work to continue the quality program that this community has created while offering a safe place for work and learning for our children and staff.
Policies in this handbook are to provide direction for families and staff while on Sunstone grounds, to help control the potential of an illness outbreak in our school community and provide protection for our staff, children, and families. Each policy outlined in this document applies to all employees and community members while on Sunstone Montessori School property.
We have based these policies on guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Oregon Department of Education Early Learning Division (ELD), and the Office of Governor Brown. You can view the CDC’s guidance for child care here and the ELD’s guidance here. Sunstone will strive to take the strictest measures in terms of guidance from these sources for the health and safety of our community.
Due to the nature of the pandemic, changes are inevitable and Sunstone will provide clear communication in a timely manner regarding any changes to policy or protocols.
