FAQs

Q: Do you have lunch time as part of the daily schedule?

A:  Students will have lunch in school but are required to bring lunches (nut free) from home. Gateway Village will be providing 2 nut free snacks during our snack time. We are a nut free preschool.  We do not allow food that has nuts, traces of nuts, or processed in a facility that processes nuts. 

Q: Are the children required to wear masks all day or only while they are in hallways, restrooms, etc.? Do they have to wear masks while sitting at their desks?

A: Your child will need to wear a mask, but can take it off when three feet physical distancing is maintained. They can also take it off when they are outside. However, it will be required if three feet cannot be maintained—hallways, during transitions, etc.

A: The following best practices will be implemented:

  • Physical distancing - the students will be seated 3 feet apart and social distancing will be maintained as much as possible and encouraged throughout the day.
