Policies

As with all our J Kids programs, our enrichment classes will be structured with COVID-19 protocols at the fore, including:

  • Daily screenings: every staff member and participant will complete a brief health screening and temperature check before entering.
  • Masks are required. Please see the J’s mask policies here.
  • Physical distancing: activities will comply with COVID-19 guidelines
  • Small cohorts: children will be assigned to a group for the length of the class and will stay with that group for all activities
  • This is not an inclusive list of all COVID-19 protocols at the J. Check out our Welcome Back page for full details of current policies and procedures, which apply to J Kids programs in addition to those listed here.

Travel Guidelines: The J follows the CDC’s travel guidelines. As of April 6, no post-travel quarantine is required for those who are fully vaccinated. If you have traveled out of town within the past 10 days, please review this chart to determine whether you are allowed to come to J.

  • “Fully vaccinated” is defined as being two weeks or more past the final dose of the vaccine (2nd shot for Pfizer or Moderna; 1 shot for Johnson & Johnson).
  • We will ask members/guests to show their vaccination card (or a photo of it) to verify the date, but will not keep a list or a copy.
  • Anyone who has not been fully vaccinated (including having had only the first of two shots or is less than two weeks out from the last shot) must either quarantine for 7 days and have a negative PCR test at day 3-5 OR quarantine for 10 days without a test before returning after travel.

J Kids enrichment classes will strictly adhere to COVID-19 protocols while also preserving the J’s spirit of a warm, welcoming community, focused on kindness, compassion, and active days. We can’t wait to see you here for another great year of enrichment classes!
