QUEST (After School Childcare)

QUEST After-school Care will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 8, the first day of in-person instruction.

Safety Protocols

  • Health screenings –Align with the district and have students and staff pre-screen prior to arrival. All QUEST team members will have district badges and key cards so we can utilize as a tracing function.
  • PPE supplies – Student Services has provided the proper PPE supplies to utilize and ordered additional items to safeguard students and staff.
  • Cleaning & sanitizing – At the end of each day, the custodial staff will clean every room/area utilized by the QUEST program.
  • Instructor: student ratio – 1:12. Every attempt has been made to place students in cohorts, however this may vary based on enrollment.
  • Hand washing – Hand washing will be built into the before and after school program schedules.
  • Contact less check in/out – Quest will be implementing a drive thru check in/out procedure. Parents will utilize a PIN to check their child(ren) in/out. A driver’s license will be an added layer of verification at pick up. To assist with a rapid checkout we are strongly encouraging parents to utilize Remind 101 or Class Dojo. A QUEST staff member will meet them at the designated location with the child(ren). Security radios will be used for communication purposes.
  • Sick/ill child – Parents of sick student will be contacted immediately for pick up and custodial services will be informed of area(s) needing to be cleaned/sanitized.
