Good Evening BrightLight Preschool Parents!
Please bear with us as we have a few updates for you.
Today, Governor Greg Abbott announced strict statewide restrictions aimed at slowing the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). He is issuing an executive order directing schools to close, banning gatherings of 10 or more people, and many other public venues to close.
Our doors WILL NOT close. We are here to help assist you in every way possible as we understand how this situation has impacted most people.
Although we are a preschool, we operate as a business first so we do not fall under the educational school category. We have verified this with the city, state, and Texas licensing officials.
In regards to maintaining 10 people or fewer in a room, we are accommodating this as well by not allowing more than 10 people (combined staff and children) to a room.
To help protect our children even further, we are asking parents to please take any cups that are here home with you and leave them there. We are providing cups to each child and continuing to use disposable cups, plasticware, and plates for all meals.
For those who bring in bottles, please use the plastic baggies located on the table in the lobby and label with your childs name.
We are also taking the blankets, nap mats, pillows, and lovies one step further. When you arrive with any of these items, please use one of the provided white trash bags we have on the table in the lobby and label it with your child's name. We will then take them back with your child to help prevent the amount of germs that may be passed on. We also ask that you continue to take them home on Fridays to thoroughly wash them. Please make sure to bring them back with you when you return.
We will continue our newly created process of checking in at the front desk in the lobby. During this time, we will continue using the COVID-19 screening form which includes taking the temperature of each child and staff member. Please do not use the tablets to check your child in or out. Our teachers are able to do this for you. Staff and children are the only people allowed past our double doors, down the hallways, and into each room.
We appreciate your patience and understanding through this very fluid situation. Thank you for allowing us to care for your child(ren) during this time, and please understand we are here for you! As each new mandate or recommendation comes available, we will update you as soon as possible. In the meantime, we will continue to operate as normal as conditions allow.
If you have any questions, comments, and/or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com.
