Partnering for Safety

We’ve partnered with pediatric infectious disease specialist Dr. Kristin Moffitt of Boston Children’s Hospital to enhance our health and safety protocols, and we continue to consult with experts to ensure our practices evolve with what is known about COVID-19, so that children, families, and teachers are protected.

Our Enhanced Protocols

Our enhanced health and safety protocols align with CDC recommendations, as well as state and local requirements. We continue to consult with experts and monitor updated guidance to ensure our protocols evolve with new learning around COVID-19, so that children, families, and teachers are protected.
