We are looking forward to a wonderful year of Jewish Learning & Discovery safely at Palisades Jewish Enrichment Club.
 
Building on our experience with the safety guidelines and protocols both at PJECC and at Camp Gan Izzy, we look forward to the school year ahead. For those families that choose, we will be having outdoor learning “Pods” for in-person learning. We will be implementing all the social distance guidelines and extra safety precautions to keep our students and staff safe. The small class sizes or “Outdoor Pods” will be spread out in the school yard.
 
The following are the precautions we will be taking to ensure everyone's safety and health.
 
1.  Health Screening: Prior to sending your child every time, we will ask you to quickly fill in an online form that tells us that your child is fever-free and has not been in contact with anyone with COVID19. If your child has symptoms or has been exposed, we will ask you to wait until your child is tested or the symptoms resolve and are most likely not COVID19. We will also be taking temperatures upon entry.
 
2. Mask Wearing: We ask all our teachers and students to wear masks at JEC. Children will be spread out more for snack-time than for learning, when their masks come off.
 
3. Social Distancing: We will be keeping each class as separate as possible from the other groups. We will be seating them 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 campus. We will have carpool drop-off and pick-up at Los Liones, at which time the children's temperature will be taken. Children will immediately be taken to wash their hands. The playground will be closed and parents are asked to drop off their child no earlier than 3:25pm.
 
5.  Hand Hygiene: We will have hand sanitizer in each class area. Children will wash hands with soap and water upon entry and before eating and also use sanitizer when necessary. |
 
6.  Increased Cleaning: We will have a cleaning person to clean bathrooms and shared spaces. Teachers will also be given spray and wipes to constantly wipe the shared surfaces in the class area and when they escort the children elsewhere.
