Maylan International Academy

Health and Safety Measures for COVID-19

Maylan International Academy follows the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) and CDC public health department guidelines.

Restrict Access. Access will be limited to the front door of the facility. Parents can drop-off and pick-up in front of the main building. Please call the office: 470-514-5728 when you pick up your children, and our staff will walk them out. (It is recommended that the same parent drops off and picks up the child). No visitors will be allowed inside the facility during school hours.

Sign-in/sign-out procedures. Our staff will sign children in and out of the facility for the families.

Health Screenings upon arrival (temperature check). We will perform a temperature check on each child and staff upon arrival. Please keep your child at home if the child or anyone in the household is displaying symptoms or is running a fever.

  •  Visual inspection – flushed cheeks, fussiness, lethargy, runny nose.
  •  Temperature screening – temperature taken with a non-contact thermometer.

Healthy Hand Hygiene Behavior All children, staff, and volunteers will engage in hand hygiene at the following times:

  • Arrival at the facility and after breaks
  • Before and after preparing food or drinks
  • Before and after eating or handling food, or feeding children
  • Before and after administering medication or medical ointment
  • Before and after diapering
  • After using the toilet or helping a child use the bathroom
  • After coming in contact with bodily fluid
  • After handling animals or cleaning up animal waste
  • After playing outdoors or in sand
  • After handling garbage
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If hands are not visibly dirty, alcohol-based hand sanitizers with at least 60% alcohol can be used if soap and water are not readily available.
  • Supervise children to wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Mask All staff will wear masks. For children age 2 and above, wearing masks is recommended by the CDC.

Restrict eating to classrooms instead of congregate/communal settings. Based on the recommendations for group settings, your child will have meals in classrooms rather than a congregate/communal setting.

Sanitize and disinfect. 

  • Surfaces and objects that are frequently touched, especially toys and games will be cleaned. This includes cleaning objects/surfaces not ordinarily cleaned daily such as doorknobs, light switches, classroom sink handles, countertops, nap pads, toilet training potties, desks, chairs, cubbies, and playground structures.
  • Toys that cannot be cleaned and sanitized will not be used.
  • Toys that children have placed in their mouths or that are otherwise contaminated by body secretions or excretions will be set aside until they are cleaned by hand by a person wearing gloves.
  • Will not share toys with other groups of infants or toddlers, unless they are washed and sanitized before being moved from one group to the other.
  • Use bedding (sheets, pillows, blankets, sleeping bags) that can be washed. Keep each child’s bedding separate, and store in individually labeled bins, cubbies, or bags. Cots and mats will be labeled for each child.
