Over the summer of 2020, a Task Force comprised of educators, church and school leaders, and healthcare experts developed a plan to reopen our campus. The resulting protocols are aimed at providing excellent childhood education while ensuring our community’s safety and well-being. In an effort to ensure best practices, we consistently examine our guidelines as we receive guidance from the CDC, Department of Public Health, and the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta.

Our guidelines consider all aspects of the Day School experience – including carpool, the classrooms and playground, and Extended Day and Afterschool Programs:

  • Carpool measures include social distancing, temperature checks, face coverings for teachers and children two years and older, and hand sanitizing.
  • In the classroom, Saint Anne’s is extremely fortunate to have large learning spaces, and children and educators interact only with their classroom cohort both inside and outside.
  • Classes spend as much time as possible outdoors, utilizing the Carol Maddox Forrester Outdoor Classroom and additional outdoor spaces. Our playgrounds are sectioned off, allowing for more than one class to be on the playground at the same time, but not in the same area.
  • Both teachers and children two years and older utilize face coverings. We also have designated multiple hand washing and sanitizing points throughout the day and have taken numerous additional steps to ensure the cleanliness of our spaces and supplies.
