COVID-19 Safety Protocols
Safety is a top priority for our VCA education program. We recognize that the COVID situation is changing very rapidly, so we are closely monitoring CDC and State/local health department guidelines to ensure the health and well-being of our students and staff. Based on these recommendations, if any of the below protocols merit changes, we will do so and communicate accordingly.
We implement the following protocols to help keep staff and students safe in our in-person classes:
*All in-person classes will happen outside under one of our large tents (if heavy rain is in the forecast for that day, class will be held online. Students will be notified in advance via email or phone).
*All students are required to wear a mask
*Each class begins with sanitizing hands and student temperature checks. Students with a temperature above 100 degrees will be sent home.
*Class sizes are reduced (max of 10-15) and students meet in groups of 5 or 6
*Class activities are designed to maintain 6 ft of social distancing
*Students have their own work spaces and materials
*High contact areas and surfaces are sanitized frequently
We will communicate quickly and openly to parents in the event of any suspected or confirmed exposure to COVID-19. In the situation of a confirmed positive COVID-19 case we will contact local health officials and follow their guidance on next steps.
If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact our registrar Crissy Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-259-3005.
