Brookshire Learning Center's full plan and response in it's original form will be found by clicking the Printable Plan button at the top of this page. That document will not be edited as time goes on and our plans change. We encourage you to read it as there is a wealth of information contained within and links to official sources of information.
We will provide updates to the actions that we need from parents, associates, and vendors on this page. We will update these actions, plans, and policies as we progress through the five stage Back on track Indiana plan and we learn more about the disease and how to minimize risk.
UPDATE 6/9/2020: No current plan modifications.
UPDATE 7/2/2020: We are constantly working on ways to make our facility as safe as possible for your children, you, and our team. We have had discussions with local physicians who are treating patients diagnosed with COVID-19. Many patients diagnosed in physicians’ offices have had minimal or no symptoms. This includes parents who have unknowingly transmitted the virus to their children.
In order to minimize the chance of transmission in our facility, under the advice of local physicians, we are asking you to consider the following actions to help keep us all safe.
Please keep your children home if you, your children, or any member of your household have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or if you, your children, or any member of your household display any of the COVID-19 symptoms. If you, your children, or any member of your household have any of the symptoms, we encourage you to take advantage of a free test. You will know within 24-48 hours if you have COVID-19. Once your test is negative, or you have been advised by health authorities that it is safe, please let us know you are returning. If you are sick, seek care.
We want to give an update on our plan of action in case there is a positive COVID-19 diagnosis amongst children or staff. Our plan states that we will shut down for cleaning if there is a diagnosis. That is still the case.
We want to clarify that the closure is only if the associate or child was present on our property during a time they were contagious. If the child or associate hadn’t been on the property, on vacation, leave, and so on while they were contagious, there is no need to close.
In every case, we will work with the local health department to make the appropriate decision based on the most up-to-date science and best practices.
UPDATE 7/11/2020: We uploaded an updated COVID-19 Safety Plan to this page. The updated plan includes all of the changes made to date that have been listed on this page.
Given the rapid increase in COVID-19 cases across the nation, we are asking for those who choose to vacation in hot spots, areas with rapidly growing infections, to stay away from the center for ten days after return to the local area. Please call us to discuss further if this applies to you or your family.
UPDATE October, 2020: We made one change to our response plan in the event an associate or child is diagnosed with COVID-19. We will no longer automatically close the entire center. We will work with the CDC and local health authorities to determine appropriate action in line with their most recent guidance. This is in line with state and local recommendations.
