Our Classroom & COVID-19

OTCP will vigilantly use guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, Washington State Department of Health/OSPI/DCYF, Washington State Business Reopening guidelines, Pierce County Health Department’s recommendations and OPEP guidelines as we make decisions for the 2021-2022 school year. 

We do not allow children, teachers, instructors, parents/guardians or guests on-site if they:

  • are showing symptoms of COVID-19. 
  • have been in close contact with someone who has confirmed or suspected COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  • parents/caregivers will fill out a virtual symptom screen/contact questionnaire at drop off each day

Teachers and all parents working in the classroom are trained in health and safety protocols for your site, including how to screen for symptoms, hand washing, maintaining physical distance, frequent cleaning, and what to do if someone develops signs of COVID-19. 

All school personnel, volunteers, visitors, and students must wear cloth face coverings or an acceptable alternative (e.g., surgical mask) at school when indoors regardless of vaccination status. Cloth face coverings must be worn by all adults and children over 5 years old. Cloth face coverings are recommended for all children above 2 years old.

Any further clarification to these measures will be forthcoming

We look forward to a safe and productive year as a school community, if you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our schools Health & Safety representative, Jane O’Connor
