Safety Measures for Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Attn: All Families

As the COVID-19 Virus is now present in our province, I would like to let you know that at TOPP KIDS, we are doing everything we can to maintain safe spaces and play at every location and wanted everyone to know what we at TOPP KIDS are doing in response.
As a valued TOPP KIDS family, you and your child(ren)s safety has always been, and remains, our number one priority.
We train comprehensively for safety and sanitization and have added new steps in our programs to combat the possibility of the virus entering one of our schools.
In addition to the standard program cleaning that has been part of our daily maintenance schedule, we have introduced additional measures to increase the sanitization of our programs.
We already disinfect and sanitize our materials, tables, surfaces, door knobs, handrails, toys and equipment using industry-approved sanitizers and disinfectants as well as bleach. Any mouthing of toys, will immediately be removed & properly cleaned before returning.
Our cleaning schedules have been increased in our routines and will be maintained until notice that the virus is no longer a threat to Albertans.
Routine hand washing is a must in our programs and happens before entering the program, when coming in from outside, before eating and after. If a child blows their nose, coughs into hands or mouthing hands, hand washing will be mandated.
PHAC has assessed the public health risk associated with coronavirus as low for Canada. We recognize that this is an evolving story and our commitment is to provide you with up-to-date information as it becomes available.
I hope this gives you confidence in the actions we are taking on your and your children’s behalf. We remain committed to providing you a safe and fun environment.

It is important for families to notify us and the school if going into self isolation

Alberta public health officials are recommending the following actions as a precaution:
  • If a student has visited a Grand Princess Cruise, Iran or China’s Hubei province in the last 14 days, it is recommended that they self-isolate until two weeks have passed since that visit. This is recommended even if they are feeling well.
  • Parents should call Health Link 811 for additional precautions and follow-up testing if their children have travelled to anywhere outside of Canada and experienced any of the following:
    • contact with someone who was suspected or confirmed to have the novel coronavirus
    • were in a health-care facility
    • have symptoms, such as cough or fever
If a student does not meet the exposure criteria above, they do not need to stay away from school and they will likely not be tested for COVID-19 as they do not meet the testing criteria. Therefore, requesting that the student provide a physician’s note is not appropriate. For health-related questions or concerns, please call Health Link at 811.
Self-isolation is a precautionary measure and does not mean that the individual is infected with COVID-19. In the event that testing determines an individual is a presumptive or confirmed case, public health officials will immediately connect with any close contacts believed to be at risk. In schools where some students have been identified as close contacts, Alberta Health has not recommended other students be kept home. Health officials will already be ensuring that all appropriate precautions are being taken.
In The Event Of A School Closure
TOPP KIDS will follow the recommendations of the school board and Alberta Health Guidelines if a closure was to be expected. Communication would be delivered to families of the program immediately.
Please help us keep our programs germ free!
