Cleaning and Disinfection

  • PRINTS uses a combination of alcohol wipes, disinfectant wipes/solutions, non-toxic disinfectant solutions, UV lamps/wands, and a non-toxic fogger to clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces.

 

  • After each use of materials, an adult will immediately scan the used material using the UV wand, making sure no child is nearby.

 

  • All high-touch surfaces are frequently disinfected.

  • The outdoor environment and equipment are disinfected after use by each group.

 

  • All classroom environments, furniture, materials and bathrooms are disinfected mid-day and at the end of the day when the children are not present.

Ventilation

  • Windows and doors are kept open when safe to do so.

  • Each classroom environment has a HEPA air-purifier.
