We are happy to offer in-person learning this year with small classes at Aleph Hebrew School.
 
The following are the precautions we are taking to ensure everyone's safety and health. 
 
1.  Health Screening: Prior to sending your child every week, we will ask you to quickly fill out an online form that tells us that your child is fever-free and has not been in contact with anyone with Covid-19. If your child has symptoms or has been exposed, we ask you to wait until your child is tested or the symptoms resolve, before sending him/her to Hebrew School. We are also going to be taking temperatures upon entry.
 
2: Mask Wearing: We ask all our teachers and students to wear masks at Hebrew School.
 
3. Social Distancing: We will be keeping each class as separate as possible from the other groups. We will be seating them 6 feet apart from one another, and spaced out on the floor with seating dots. Children will receive individual packs of supplies, and we will sanitize any shared supplies between uses. Food will be individually packaged snacks.
 
4. Arrival and Dismissal: Parents or caregivers will not be allowed to enter the building. Everyone will wait 6 feet apart outside and be welcomed individually, at which time the children's temperature will be taken. Children will immediately be taken to wash their hands, and will then join their class for learning and fun. We will do the same at dismissal; children will be sent downstairs to their parents one family at a time. 
 
5.  Hand Hygiene: We will have sanitizer and soap and water in each learning area. Children will wash hands upon entry and before eating and also use sanitizer when necessary. 
 
6.  Increased Cleaning: We will have a cleaning person on hand to clean bathrooms and
shared spaces constantly; door handles and banisters will be cleaned after each entry and exit of the children. Teachers will also be given spray and wipes to constantly wipe the shared surfaces in the classrooms and when they escort the children elsewhere in the building.
