Ranked by Northern Virginia Magazine among the Best Summer Camps in
Northern Virginia, ACE is getting ready for another exciting summer and we
hope you will join us!
ACE completed its required inspection on Friday, May 15th and Tuesday, May 19th with the Department of Social Services and the Fairfax county Health Department. We are happy to announce that ACE has been given the green light to open on time for summer program on Monday, June 15th.
Below are the safety guidelines and sanitary practices that we are implementing to ensure a safe environment for all students and teachers.
A carpool drop off system (like our school year) will be used for morning drop off and afternoon pickup.
Staff and students will have their temperatures taken upon arrival every morning using a touch less, approved thermometer. Staff and students will a fever of 99.5 will not be permitted to enter the facility and will be asked to go home. They may return with a doctor’s note once they have been fever free for over 24 hours without medicine.
Restrooms will be cleaned every 30 minutes and after every student uses the facility (much like a restaurant restroom system)
Students will not leave the facility for field trips in order to provide and maintain a clean and safe environment
Water play will be put on hold in order to ensure proper social distancing
Staff and students may wear facemasks as deemed appropriate for their ages and parental preference
Students will have their own supply box to eliminate shared materials
Groups will be made up of 9 people or less (including a licensed, and approved ACE staff member)
Groups will utilize the playground at separate times, eat snack and lunch in their base room
Classrooms, supplies, toys, etc. will be cleaned and sanitized, multiple times a day
Proper hand washing, hand sanitizing, etc. will be taught and maintained by staff, students, etc.
Screen time will be limited (we all know our kids have been on “screens” in various forms a lot these past weeks...their bodies and brains need a break)
In summary, Ace will continue to go above and beyond to provide a safe, healthy, loving, learning environment for all students this summer. The health and safety of our ACE community is our number one priority.
