ACTIVSTARS COVID-19 Guidelines

(This is a living document and is subject to change as regulations are updated)

 

We are very excited to welcome back our ACTIVSTARS Families!  Below are our COVID-19 guidelines for returning to class.  These rules are for the safety of our staff, students, and parents; please read over the guidelines carefully.  Violations of any guideline may result in the removal of your student(s).

 

As much as we can do to protect our students, we need you as parents to talk to your children about germs, keeping their hands to themselves, and social distancing to the best of their ability.  With your help, we will be able to run smoothly, and the quicker we can get back to some sort of normalcy!
